I'm a junior in high school and considering going to Baruch college (as an out-of-state student) in New York if I get that coveted full ride scholarship that comes with Baruch honors or Macaulay honors. What are my chances of getting into the honors college? Intended major: Finance
City: Memphis, TN
GPA: 4.0 unweighted
Class Rank: 6 in a class of 500
Rigor of schedule: I will graduate with 4 AP classes and many honors classes under my belt.
Extracurriculars: My weakness... I don't have a large amount of extracurriculars, just one main one. I am an advanced classical pianist and have been playing for about 10 years now. I practice about two hours a day and have won several competitions. I also have some little extracurriculars (National Honors Society member, Latin Club member, Mu Alpha Theta member) to compliment my piano playing.
A final question: will being from Memphis help in any way in the admissions process (I would think that Southerners are underrepresented at any of the CUNY schools.
Any answers, comments, advice would be MUCH appreciated!
