Chance me for Georgia Tech
Major: Probably Computational Media
ACT: 28 (Planning to retake, and hoping for at least a thirty this time)
SAT: Going to take this Saturday (I haven't had time to take it.)
SATII: Taking the Korean in November, and planning to get a near perfect score.
GPA: 3.7 (UW) (Although I'm pretty sure it's the same weighted because I haven't taken any APs)
Essay: Working on it. Going to be edited by an award winning writer!
APs: Computer Science (This year)
2 Years of Traditional Korean Drum Lessons (Also preformed on stage at the first Korean Festival in front of ~300 people)
2 years of Anime Club (Club Rep)
2 years of Writers' Guild (Club Rep, and although we don't have positions, I'm basically the VP)
Korean School Graduate (after 10 years of Korean School)
2 years Korean School Teacher's Aide (Three hours every Saturday. I have 100+ hours from last year)
Awards include Honorable Mention in a Korean Writing competition (District Wide), and a Persistence Award for writing the most in my graduating Korean School class. I have a lot more, but those are the most prestigious ones.
My excuse for not taking as many APs as I could is that most of the APs offered are history/English courses, and I'm not a history/English person. Also, I did not have the prerequisite to take the AP courses that I did want to take. (My middle school did not let me take Algebra I eighth grade, so I'm only taking Honors Analysis this year).
My school is a competitive and selective private school, though.
I realize I'm not the best student. In fact, my GPA is not as high as it should be, I'm taking my first AP this year, I've only taken two honors classes during my four years, my test scores aren't perfect, and being Asian does not help. Georgia Tech is my dream school, though, and I really want to know if it's going to be difficult to get in.
Please be as honest as possible.
I am going to be applying Regular Decision, if that helps.
