My DS got his worst news today - rejected from EA. He called his AO but they won't give reasons until after the admissions decisions are finalized. He's not a slouch, Eagle Scout, Captain of sports team (4 years on Varsity), 1400 SAT, 3.7 GPA. Attended CFAD and every local event in our state. This leaves him wondering about his best Plan B, and if that should include re-applying next year. I just wonder what he could do to enhance his application in the year. He could re-take SAT/ACT, his grades won't move much. He would love to spend a semester at NOLS getting a Wilderness EMT and swift water rescue credentials. Or just go to college. Anyone have successful stories of re-applying and what they did to enhance their application? I read a few on the forum, most just went to a community college to enhance their scores and GPA. thanks!
