Good luck with your cycle! We have very similar numbers and backgrounds, and are applying to many of the same schools. Here's to hoping for the best, keep in touch with your acceptances!

Grinnell is awesome. How do you like working as an admissions officer? I thought about doing something like that (always seemed like something I'd really, really enjoy)

How do people post merit-based scholarships on this site? Would 10K a year be listed as 10K, or 30K?

Congrats
