Chances of getting into Georgia Tech or Emory?
I am an Asian male from Marietta, GA. I go to a very competitive high school, the 2nd best in Georgia. I am a very hard worker & dedicated student.
My GPA is currently 4.1 weighed & my ranking is i believe 80/670 (It will improve this year). I have/will take AP Chemistry, AP US History, AP Calculus AB, AP Government, AP Microeconomics, AP Biology, AP Physics B, AP Spanish Language. I have taken numerous honors courses.
My SAT scores really do not reflect how smart & hard working I am as a student. This is due to test anxiety & I hope that these numbers will not cost my future.
Verbal: 580 Math: 650 Writing: 610
National Honors Society, Future Physicians Club (president), Teacher @ church, Boy's Tennis, Pianist, Job @ Nursery, Fairview Development Center, physicians assistant & much more. I'm active in the community w/ 150+ hours & counting.
Please inform me of my chances of getting into GT or Emory University. I'm worried & I'm willing to work hard.
Let me know what I need to work on or how I must proceed. Will a higher GPA weigh out the lower SAT score? Should I take any SAT II subject tests? Please advise me on what I should do or let me know if I am fine or not. Thank you very much!
