I am currently looking for some great schools and I intend on majoring in Political Science.
I am currently a Junior at my high school and am about to take the SAT/ACT, so I do not currently have those statistics.
I do have a 4.5 GPA, weighted of course, am in AP Calculus as a Junior, am in all AP classes this year with the exception of an Honors Chemistry course (required) and Student Government.
Next year I should be the Student Body President for my High School and may also possibly be one of 3 state Presidents for Arizona (Of Student Governement) . (That is if I decide to run and if I win)
What colleges would I be able to get into and how good are their programs in Political Science?
How much does becoming one of 3 State Presidents improve my chances into getting into these colleges?
I also currently have a job at Baskin Robbins. (Funny, I know)
I plan on getting involved in helping politicians in my area (Republicans) seeing as that is what I want to get into when I am older.
Also, if it helps, I was starting Lacrosse Goalie for my high school my Freshman and Sophomore year (and led the team to our first semi-finals) and Captain of Varsity for my Sophomore year as well. I decided against playing this year and the next, but it was not like our team was recognizable anyways.
