Anonymous asked: My GPA is a 3.58, which I understand is a little low for Oberlin. However, I have perfect standardized test scores and lots of extracurriculars, do I still have a chance of getting accepted?

(Note: everyone who asks about their chances for Oberlin will be linked to precisely the same blog post from now on.)

To quote Elizabeth Houston…

…It’s important to note that, especially at schools like Oberlin, who use a holistic review process to evaluate applications, it really is impossible to reliably predict whether or not you will be admitted on the basis of some bare-bones information like your GPA and test scores. The full application and various supporting documents are required for a reason, and we really do use all of that information when making decisions.

More from whence this came on the Oberlin blogs.
