I've recently started to narrow down my list of colleges I'll be applying to next year (I'm currently a Junior) and Penn is presently at the top of the list. I've looked through some of the accepted/rejected statistics and have yet to discover what exactly Penn looks for in its applicants. I consider myself a fairly decent candidate, my unweighted is currently 4.0, weighted 5.04 at the end of Junior year (barring catastrophe), I'm involved in countless clubs, founded a volunteer organization that I'll be 2-year president of, have received numerous debate and mathematics awards at various national competitions including scholarships, and am, as a Junior, captain of both my Cross Country and Track and Field teams (there are other qualities I could discuss, but do not wish to drag this post on any long than it has to be) and I hope to run at Penn as a walk-on. I will have taken 5 AP exams by the end of this year, and plan on taking 4+ AP classes Senior year.
My question is this: what more can I be doing to improve my chances? I mean obviously, if I increase my workload tremendously that will help, but what specifically can I do to make myself a better candidate for Penn? I want to apply early decision, but I'd like more assurance than that.
All help is truly appreciated.
