So, UNC has been a dream school for a while, and it has everything I look for in a school. It's the only OOS univ I'm applying to and I'm not convinced that I'll get in, and I'd rather not blatantly waste $70. I'm a Senior @ a public school.
Here are my stats:
-UW GPA: 3.8
-W GPA: 4.7
-Rank: 8/407 ~ top 2%
-SAT: 1780 superscore, retaking in Oct (recent prac tests have been very close to 2000)
-SAT II: 730 Span with List.
-AP's: AP Span Lang(5), AP Span Lit(5), AP Eng Lang(3), AP Eng Lit, AP Env Sci.
The majority of my other courses were honors.
-NHS, Spanish Honor Society, Treasurer for Pre-Med Society
- 541 community service hours
- Guide of volunteer program where I volunteered (for about 450 hours)
- AP Scholar (If that means anything...)
- Harvard Book Award (I'm listing it because it's only given to one student in my HS and it's chosen by a teacher)
-Good teacher rec.
hmmm...I think that's all.
Obviously my biggest worry is my SAT, because it really doesn't portray my capabilities. I'm studying like a maniac while keeping up with my current APs and classes, so hopefully it improves for October.
