    This is a very strong profile! Is more than 60/100 seen as a good grade? Not sure how it commutes to gpa. You are strong in coursework and research, so I think you can be aiming definitely for top 15, maybe even a top 10, but maybe include some top 30-40 for good measure as we donít know how things will turn out with the Covid-related admissions intake this cycle.
