I am planning to complete all science/math/social study based test, and maybe Spanish AP and Latin AP out of the foreign languages.
Scored a 5 on AP Bio, AP Chem, AP European History, AP US History, AP World History, AP Human Geography, AP Environmental Science, Statistics, and AP Psychology.
Internship at Zoo (50 hours a week)
Soccer (1 Year, but I'm already one of their best for the team, so I should advance quickly. Pure luck)
Herpetology (I care and breed 60 reptiles/amphibians)
FIRST Robotics Program
Volunteer at Animal Shelter (As a Special Volunteer - To help improve the program)
4-H Member of 8 Years
Homeless Shelter Volunteer
I play violin, do a little photography, and some writing. I internship with a management company.
My current goals revolve around making a quiz bowl team for a few competitions, but besides that, I really don't have the time for new clubs. I spend A LOT of time at my internship at the Zoo, because I was so lucky to have them change their rules for me (I'm the youngest they have by 6 years). It is a great position. And I spend most of my time available towards academic pursuits or my other clubs.
I have many test I need to take and then pass, plus I want to do the national quiz bowls or test in scientific subjects and WIN XD.
I'm looking at all these other chances, and I suddenly feel worried. I don't have nearly as much impressive awards or feats. I'm don't speak five languages nor did I play on the olympic squash team. I barely survive sports, besides soccer (pure luck). I don't do debate team. I don't have ten amazing clubs. I haven't been hired as the president's assistant. I did not fix Steven Hawking's chair and then get him to write a recommendation letter for me.
(I'm exaggerating for comical purposes in the above paragraph)
I want to double major in physics and biology. If I can, I would like to triple major in Physics, Engineering and Biology. I LOVE animals... but I also go to the whole other spectrum of science and obsess over physics/engineering. I had 4 periods freshman year, nearly back to back, all about physics and engineering. I brought a shelf for my stuff, so I didn't have to carry THREE bags and brought in a chair with my name on it, ha ha!
Is there anything I should add or work on over the course of high school to improve my chances? My dream school is MIT. I have a few legacies at Yale, Cornell and MIT.
P.S. I hope my grammar isn't totally off, I recently suffered a concussion (don't ask, ha ha), and I have been having difficulty finding grammar mistakes. Please forgive me.
