Chance me? (:
I'm an Asian female and a junior (class of 2013) at an average public high school in the midwest. I'm applying to UPenn RD.
4.65 (w), 3.75 (uw) GPA (3 B's in Hon. Physics, AP Chem, and AP Calc BC)
All honors or AP classes with the most rigorous course load possible at my school, I've actually taken some classes a year early
ACT composite score of 34; E: 35, M: 34, R: 33, S: 33, writing: 8 (I'm taking it again so hopefully my composite and writing scores will increase)
I'm taking the SAT II in October in Math 2 and English Lit and hopefully my scores will be 700+
I'm definitely going to be at least a National Merit Commended Scholar and possibly a Semi-Finalist
