It's a long shot... but chances?
I'm about to become a Junior, and Columbia has been my dream school for a really long time. I royally screwed up Freshman and Soph year. I got mostly B's and one C each year, leaving my GPA at around 3.5
Dance for 15 years by Senior year
Founder of a Habitat for Humanity Club + President for 2 years
Member of SADD, Rotary Club, Newspaper Club, Student Council
150+ volunteer hours by Senior year
The classes I have gotten a C in both years is Science (Honors Bio, Honors Chem). I plan to major in Pre-Law, so hopefully this won't have too big of an impact.
My other classes (mostly B's, some A's) are:
Honors English 1 and 2
Honors Geometry and Honors Alg 2
Honors Spanish both years
Honors US History and APUSH
This summer I'm taking a program at Columbia University
I know with this info, I am not on track to getting in. But I was wondering if I have any chance if I manage to get all A's Junior year. My classes will be: Honors Pre-Calc, AP World History, Honors English, AP Lang Comp, Honors Physics, Honors Spanish.
I also plan to get at least a 2250 on my SATs and a 33-35 on ACT + Writing.
I am taking SAT 2's in US History, World History, Math 2, and Lit.
I know I'm just becoming an upperclassman, but I need to know if I have any chance. It'll kind of guide me on how hard I need to work next year. If I can get into Columbia by completely changing my track, I will. I'll do whatever necessary, I just need to know if it's possible. Thanks so much.
