Well, I graduated valedictorian last year. But my school has a really retarded system of NEVER granting anybody perfect scores. So even though I am valedictorian, my overall GPA is 3.69
I graduated a quiet hard school, tho..
My weak stats are probably in the English part of SAT..
Math 1: 750
(Taking physics & math 2 in December)
My ECs are quiet strong: I volunteered at a school in a remote rural village for five months, I am a Rotarian, I had an internship at a software design company, and I campaigned a lot for a human rights movement in Egypt.
Also, I swam for the junior national team of my country for two years. Then u got injured and started training for crew. I actually row for a major club now, and I qualified in a boat that will row at nationals next January..
That is pretty much all of it..
I applied early to Dartmouth & WPI, but I am not having much faith I'll get in..with enough aid (I need lots of aid, really)
& my counselor keeps on telling me to add safety schools to my list, so can u guys suggest something for me??
Oh, and I am majoring in engineering. But I actually included a couple of LACs to my list, that have a 3-2 physics-engineering program..
So if u have an LAC in mind, don't hesitate to tell me!
