-Will not apply for financial aid
-Unweighted GPA: 3.65
-Weighted GPA: 4.45
-ACT Composite: 32 (will re-take)
-My high school is a magnet and is consistently ranked in the top 10 high schools in the nation. It is extremely competitive and very difficult to both get in and stay in.
-Ranking: no ranking
-AP's I will have taken or will currently be taking by application time: European History, Psychology, English Language, Calculus AB, Physics B, Literature, Macroeconomics, Government, Spanish
-I have taken at least 1 class each year in all core subjects. This trend will be continued into my senior year. All of these classes have been honors/AP classes
-I am in the process of writing a very involved thesis in which I will be interacting with and helping my local Hispanic population.
-I have done about 100 hours of community service.
-I am the co-president and co-founder of my high school's GSA. This may carry more weight considering I live in a very conservative state, and to establish and maintain this group was very difficult, although necessary.
-I am also active in groups such as Junior Intermezzo, National Honors Society, National Spanish Honors Society
-Both mother,father, grandfather, etc. graduated from OSU.
Parents will only let me apply/attend if I get into the Honors program :(
EDIT: also, is the honors program something you have to apply to alongside regular application, or after you've been admitted? If someone could explain the process to me, I'd be very grateful. I tried looking on the website, but I didn't really understand it :P
