Chance @ John Hopkins/UC's/Uni of Florida
Hey, since I spent my highschool in Dubai, my post might be a bit different.
Class Rank: 1/120
SAT: 1810; but I'm going to take it again and will probably score 2000+
SAT 2: Haven't given any yet. But from my test preps, my score in Math 1 would range 700+. And Physics would range 670+.
AP/Honors aren't available here; just normal classes.
As for EC:
There's pretty much no such thing as debates "competitions" here, although I can debate well.
But luckily my school has a magazine. The people I've interviewed range from royals to professors and newspaper editors.
Sports wise: Almost all competitions here are in soccer. But although I don't play soccer, I play basketball and cricket (I'm Pakistani so cricket's a given).
Volunteer Work: Again, pretty hard to find a place to volunteer here unless you're already a doctor. But by the end of this year, I'll try my best to pile up at least 50 hours of volunteer work.
Job experience: Well my options vary; I can do some random low-wage job or I can do some work in the family business. Which do you suggest?
What would you suggest to improve my chances?
