Hi. So here it is:
SAT: 2290. 800 M, 730 CR, 760 W.
SAT II: 790 Math II, 720 Physics
GPA: 4.0 Unweighted. Go to a competitive private high school. Our class doesn't release ranks but I'm probably either 1 or 2 out of about 180.
AP: 5 on US Gov, 4 on AP Lit. Taking 4 Ap's this year.
In addition to those AP, I've taken about 4 honors classes per year (I've basically taken honors in every class it was offered).
4 years of soccers, 4 years of baseball, 1 year of basketball, 3 years of indoor track.
Worked 30 hours per week over the summer doing computer work.
Spent 2 weeks (70 hours in all) helping inner-city children at a camp at a local school.
So. I think my grades should give me a good shot to get in. My scores are decent (hopefully brought them up this past saturday
So what I'm basically wondering is, I haven't done tons of extra-curriculars like service and research and stuff that a lot of people I'm competing against have. However, I'm going to write my essay about how playing sports have made me a better student in terms of time-management and hard work.
I'm not trying to stereotype, but I feel like the fact that I play sports year round will help me to stand out from applicants. Do you think that gives me a chance to get in despite the fact my resume isn't as extensive as other applicants?
Any thoughts are appreciated, thanks!
