AP English Literature (boy, do I regret this)
AP European History
AP Microeconomics (1st semester)/Macroeconomics(2nd semester)
AP Physics B
AP Calculus BC
SAT Superscore (took it twice, procrastinated on studying both times):
670 reading (don't know why it's so low, I got a 77 on the CR PSAT)
US History (Pending, pretty sure I got an 800)
Chemistry (Pending, pretty sure I got an 800)
Math II (Also pending, don't feel quite as confident, but still feel high 700s)
Nat'l merit semifinalist
I'm sure there's more..
Football (JV 9th,10th, Varsity 11th, quit partially because I broke my foot in the offseason)
Spanish National Honor Society
Job at a pizza place (15-18 hours a week, started this summer)
I'm sure that there's more here, too..
UC Berkeley (do you really need a fine art credit to be admitted?)
GA Tech (safety)
Stanford (getting recommendation from an alum)
Getting recommendations from AP Chemistry teacher (Stanford alum, I was one of very few Juniors to get a 5, and he has a mancrush on me), and from AP Lang teacher (we're pretty much friends).
I'm really just looking for a school with both strong engineering and humanities programs, as I'm tentatively planning to apply as an engineer and minor in something like history, so I'm really open to suggestions.
I would chance you back, but I'm quite clueless as to what makes someone qualified to be admitted into whichever college.
