is it worth applying to barnard early decision?
Answered

Hi, I'm a rising senior with a 3.94 UW gpa and a 34 ACT score that I plan on submitting. I will have taken 9 APs by the end of my senior year, and I have pretty standard extracurriculars, nothing spectacular. Collegevine chances me at 29/30 percent (it changes based on what page I'm viewing on). Is it worth me using my early decision at a school that I have such a slim chance at, or should I take a more pragmatic approach and pick a school that I don't love as much but I stand a better chance of not wasting my ED?

I recommend applying ED to Barnard. My recommendation with ED is always to apply to the school you are most passionate about. After all, applying ED to another school might mean that you'll have to withdraw an acceptance to Barnard, and that would be painful! If you build a balanced school list with at least two safties, four targets, and two reaches, you will surely get accepted to at least one school no matter what. Hope this helps!

You have pretty good gpa and testing (but of course everyone that apply will have good one too, stand out make a great essay) I suggest applying ED it’s always a no if you never apply do it take a leap of faith and if you don’t get accepted any school will freely accepted you and give you full ride scholarship
