Dear All, What are your thoughts on Tier III applicants this year? DS's application has finally 'gone live' (he had everything in weeks ago, but some things seem to have been lost in hyperspace for a while). He has great SATs (1600), 4.88 gpa, captain of the wrestling team (4 year letterman), a lot of community service hours, and school leadership (co-founded his high school's Model UN Club). He's taking AP BC Calculus now, but has no interest in a technical major. He indicated he'd be happy to go LREC on his application. I just wonder as a parent if with his humanities/social sciences interests he's out of the running even before he starts. If he were a science major, like his brother, I'd be very optimistic. I do, though, support his sticking to his guns and he does have Plan B possibilities if this (his first choice) doesn't pan out.
