Low sat: 1670 math 590 reading 550 writing 530
I'm planning on taking the sat once more and the act for the first time
I'm a senior right now
Mexican American female
Living under poverty line ($15,000~/yr) ?
I haven't really done any ecs but I have join honor societies ? Spanish honor society, science honor society, national honor society
I have done the young scholars program for 2 years at umcp with full scholarships
The reason I haven't done any ecs is because my sister has severe cerebral palsy and I have to get home to take care of her so that my mother can go run errands (single parent). I also had a bad start freshman year because of my skin condition. I had a terrible staph infection on my face but I still went to school because I didn't know what it was, so it lasted more than half the school year.
