Can I get in with ED to CAS?
First of all I'm new here, so I am probably posting this in the wrong forum.
I am a first generation college student, white, male, immigrated from Russia in '96.
According to these conversion systems from CollegeBoard and Princeton Review I would have a 4.0 uw gpa. Not sure what it would be for the weighted one, but it is 97/100 on a 100 point scale.
SAT Superscore: 2130----> CR: 690, M:750, W:690 (I hope to retake it and get math to 800 and writing in the 700s, reading is tough for me though.)
SAT II: Math 2: 720 US History: 720
AP: USH: 4 Calc AB: 5 Spanish: 3 Euro: 3
AP Scholar with Honor, Discus Award Winner
Taking AP Physics B, AP govt, AP stat senior year in a very rigorous and competitive high school in NYC.
My school doesn't rank but I know I'm def in top 10%. Probably even top 5%.
Extracurriculars: captain of Vars XC and Track teams (4 years, captain senior year), Sports Editor for School Newspaper (4 years, editor for junior and senior years), Chairperson of NHS (3 years, chairperson senior year), not official, but I'm going to be an Eagle Scout in about a month or two. I am going to have a community health fair with the local hospital and red cross volunteering to help.
Work/ Volunteering: Worked at some summer camps where I personally taught classes to kids ranging in age from 6 to 18. Worked as an assistant chef at a cafe. Worked as an intern for a big real estate company. Worked with famous Med School professor to create visuals for presentations to first year med school students, which included research and finding/ making visual representations of biological processes. 50 hours at a community mural project (Volunteer). Worked in the Parent Coordinator's office during the summer for 175 hours (Volunteer). Around 70 hours from a camp I worked at (volunteer).
I think my essays are pretty strong and have some solid recommendations coming from APUSH and AP Calc AB teachers.
I am interested in Engineering and Sciences, but not certain if I would want to go into this field. I live in NYC but wouldn't mind going across the nation for college.
I want a school that isn't completely rural, has really nice facilities (the beauty of an IVY), students are generally happy people, I want to have a life in college, but definitely have great academics.
I think I want to apply for CAS, but if accepted try to transfer to Engineering. I have not taken the physics sat 2 yet.
