What are my chances for getting into Case Western? I have a 3.3 cumulative GPA (unweighted), scored a 30 on my ACT (this was my 1st try but i plan on improving to at least 31), my school doesnt do ranks but its a private school (Bishop Fenwick H.S.), and my extracurriculars and classes are as follows:
Freshman: All Honors possible + band; Football, intramural basketball, and volunteering at an animal rescue.
Sophomore: All Honors excluding english, and I doubled up on math taking Honors Alg. II and Geometry at the same time; I didnt play Football but I continued to do intramurals and volunteering at the shelter
Junior (Current Year): All honors excluding English but now with Honors Latin III; played football again this year and continued intramurals, I now volunteer in the pre/post deparment of Atrium Medical Center in Middletown,Ohio, and what I do does involved patient transport and contact. also taking AP World History
Senior (future): I am going to continue in all honors except english, the classes I will be taking will be: honors physiology, honors Bio II, english IV, Calculus(or precalc), World geography or AP Government, possibly Chem II (I like science), plus and elective and a religous class that is required by the school.
ACT Scores (specified): English 31, Reading 35, Science 27, Math 27
I will have reccomendations from the hospital I volunteer plus others if required
Also I forgot to mention I am doing a study on disinfectants for the Intel ISEF science fair
I will definitely be doing a visit to Case Western if possible
Thanks in advance for your feedback and if theres anything you think I left out I'd be thankful if you told me. ( please excuse any mispellings, I was typing this in a hurry)
