    Re: Profile Evaluation for RA positions

    Iím guessing you go to Reed. I think youíll be much better served by spending a year or two as a full time RA before applying. Then I think top 20 will be within reach. Your math and econ grades are very good, althought I think some schools have an explicit gpa cutoff at 3.5, so you may want to focus on keeping that up.
