Chance for CAS ED!
Hi guys... I'm currently a senior, and have applied to CAS for early decision. I would really appreciate any replies!
School: Large, public high school in NJ (block scheduling so you can't really take a lot of APs, although some students will have 7 or 8, whereas I only have 5).
GPA- 4.05(UW), 4.34 (W) (My school had a weird scale freshman year, so now it's impossible to have over a 4.0 uw)
Never gotten anything lower than an A (93) in mainly honors and APs.
APs- Stat (4), English Lang (5)
PSAT-National Merit Commended from NJ
SAT- 2290 Superscore (800 CR, 750 M, 740 W)
Took Math II and Spanish in October, expecting upper 700s and mid 700s, respectively.
Senior year schedule- AP Calc BC, AP Physics C, AP Spanish Lang, a bunch of honors electives (most rigourous course load possible for this year). So far, I have all A's and A pluses in the APs.
