I'm a Filipino-American female about to be a senior at a non-competitive high school.
My GPA is a 3.8UW/4.6W. ACT 30, SAT 1880. (Please don't judge from this alone, I know it's not good.)
The AP's I've taken are:
US History (waiting)
My senior year schedule is:
AP Calc AB
Physics honors (no AP available)
AP Human Geography
Eurhythmics/Instrumental Ensemble (colorguard)
I've taken other college classes but they are dual enrollment (English Comp & Lit, and College Algebra and Stats)
I've only gotten 3 B's so far (in College English Lit, AP US, and College stats)
I've been the marching band's colorguard captain for 2 years, I'm the vice president of NHS, the president of Students Working Against Tobacco and the president and founding member of Drug-Free Youth (community organization). I'm also a competing member in the Academic Olympics, I'm in MAT, and Key Club.
I have community service hours doing community advocating with SWAT and D-FY and for assisting the local middle school in their S.T.E.M. program, T.S.A club, and technology education class, as well as being a "counselor" in the middle school's mini-colorguard camp. I have about 300 hours doing this.
