College Confidential’s “Dean,” Sally Rubenstone, put together 25 of her best tips. So far, the "25 Tips from the Dean" eBook has helped more than 10K students choose a college, get in, and pay for it. Get your free copy: http://goo.gl/9zDJTM
-GPA: 95.82/100 unweighted (never used the 4.0 scale at my school, it's private)
-Taken all honors classes the school has had to offer, and 6 APs (ES, Bio, Physics, Calc AB, both Lits). 2 APs junior year, 4 senior. Essentially, I've taken all the hard classes my school allows for me to do while fulfilling the general graduation requirements.
-ACT: 31 (35 sci, 32 math, 26 reading, 31 english) I'm still waiting for my new scores to come
-SAT: 2040 (720 math, 700 writing, 620 reading)
-SATII: 630 Literature, 690 Mathh II (not required at Colgate)
-4 years of soccer (2 starting varsity)
-3 years of basketball (captain for 1 year)
-Archery team (qualified for IBO World Championships, competed once, licensed hunter/bowhunter)
-Teachers assistant in a first grade class junior year (60+ hours)
-Volunteered in a math tutoring program
-Woodworking (hobby I guess? My pieces of work I've done feel significant enough to count as an activity though. Put in about 200 hours a year)
-National Honor Society
-Math and English awards my junior year
-High honor roll all 4 years, as well as effort honor roll
Colgate is my number one choice, by far, and I'd love to know my chances. Thanks!
