Early Action or no?
Hello everyone! Notre Dame is my top choice school for their unique (traditional) architecture program and I really love everything about it.
Would you recommend early action or just wait until regular for better chances?
-White male, rising senior at a competitive/respected Catholic college prep in Chicago (accepts usually 10-15 applicants a year from a class of 350ish; 6 or so usually attend).
-34 composite ACT (34 English, 35 Math, 34 Reading, 32 Science, 10 writing)
-3.87ish UW GPA, 4.03 W, school does not rank (for context, average accepted from my school is 3.87 W regular, 4.03 W early)
-Will graduate with 6 APs (APUSH, Euro, Comparative government and politics, Physics, Spanish language, and AB Calculus)
-ECs: President of Spanish Honors Society, Secretary of National Honors Society, Model United Nations, Track and Field (2 years, 1 varsity), Arrupe Mentor to incoming freshmen in the fall (40% acceptance rate in school), maybe a couple other clubs here and there
-Service: nursing home, soup kitchen, historic home museum volunteer
-Summers: Exchange student to Chile 2011, Notre Dame Career Discovery in Architecture 2012, perhaps a job later this summer (wish me luck)
