One strange fact: Technically I am an plumbing apprentice. I could get my journeyman's before I go to college. Hey, women plumbers get paid at lot of money. =] Haha.
I am looking to major in psychology or sociology. Want to go on to law so I can go on to do something in children's rights.
Haha. I copied it for 3 threads and didn't realize it said that. My friend set up this account for me and I told her what I did and she entered me. The first one she set up was Stanford's and told me to copy it for the threads I wanted. It won't let me edit either or else I would.
You can get a 4 and still test out of math courses at NU. Also, AP scores aren't supposed to have any weight in college decisions...they're supposedly just for testing out of courses, thereby potentially saving tons of money.
By the way, great job on those APs. Last year, I stunk it up, because I only studied like two days beforehand...so I got a 3 on Eng. Comp., a 3 on US History, and a 5 on Statistics.
but you don't know what the admissions people are looking for.
You do what you do for 4 years, you apply to the best of your ability, you do the best you can on your tests and then you wait to see if you are what they are looking for.
Hopefully, they can detect something unique about you that will complement their freshman class/the university.
Your ECs are great (I have the same thing as you about ECs...come on! What's up with that).
You just have to wait now. Go read a book for pleasure, go call a friend and go for a walk, go to a movie. Get your mind off of this. Time passes as it does - one second at a time - and there's nothing you can do but wait until the decisions are released. Don't put your life on hold until then.
Haha and I can now add Thespian to the list although I don't know how helpful that is. I can't relax yet, I still have to apply, I'm only a junior lol. The stats for ECs and this semester are projected.
From what I heard, MMSS, like ISP, isn't too difficult to get in like HPME. What I mean is you don't have 1000+ applicants for 30 slots. On the other hand, the intensity of the curriculum will eventually weed out those who can't handle it (especially for ISP) within the first couple quarters.
