I was named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. What do you think are my chances of making it to Finalist status?
Best SATs: Math 720, Reading 800, Writing 750. (Math II 800, French 800)
I think my GPA is 3.98
I'm from Vermont; there are 44 other VT semifinalists and 1 other in my school (he is smarter than me though...)
Activities: figure skating for 10 yrs, started baking business, a little paid & volunteer work, in human rights club, 5-month exchange program in France
Wrote my essay about a challenging experience from my exchange in France--I think it was pretty good?
