Hi Everyone, My DS was boarded in the first round and passed over. I thought he had a good chance; however, now after reading many of these forums I am having second thoughts. His HS does not weigh the GPA and he had a poor sophomore year due to the intensity of his coursework. Overall, his unweighted GPA was 3.48 and he always took honors or AP coursework. He completed 9 college credits in HS and took Mandarin as his language. He got a 700 verbal/660 math on the SAT, so you might understand why I thought he looked good. I'm not sure how the fitness test is scored but he did 51 push-ups, 46 curl ups, and ran 6:27 mile. In terms of athletics, he played JV and Varsity football for 4 years (1 as Captain), wrestled JV for 2 years, and JV Lacrosse for 2 years. He is involved in community activities and has a job over the summer. DS told me he thought the interview with PMS went well. He interviewed at one of the schools he has on the his list. His HS does have a profile that they publish and it provides a formula if schools want to weigh the coursework. I don't expect the board to go through this process; although if they did, my DS would end up with a 3.8 GPA. So, I have come to respect the advice that many of the long-term posters have given to many anxious parents and was wondering if you could give me some honest feedback. Not sure if the schools matter (he listed BC, RPI, and Syracuse) or his intended major (business admin). Thanks in advance for any advice you offer. Have a happy and healthy holiday season.
