I'm a senior in Rhode Island going to a really good public high school and I have the following stats:
GPA:3.1 out of 4.3 (Got B's and mostly C's junior year which is why I'm scared I won't get in.)
Took pretty hard classes throughout my 4 years and have taken 2 AP's, World History and Government. Got a C in Gov and B in World History.
Was on tennis team all 4 year and am the captain this year.
Also did theater for several years, freshman and sophmore year was in the production both onstage and off.
Have done various volunteer assignments, mostly working with animals, because they are my passion and I want to have a career in animal welfare.
I have ADD, which wasn't diagnosed until right before junior year.
SAT score: 1900/2400
Kids from my school have gotten in with 1720 and 3.3 and with 3.5 and 1820 SAT as well.
I'm also planning to apply Early Action and am undecided on a major.
