So I would consider myself a pretty smart kid but my gpa does not reflect that. I have a 3.7 and am a junior right now. Im studying for the sat and think if I try hard enough I can pull off a 2250 to 2300. I want to get into a top notch school but have sub-par extracurriculars. Im officer of 2 clubs but thats about it. My list of school choices in order is:
How can I get into those schools with my gpa/sat scores and what can I do to improve my extra curriculars. I volunteer occasionally and live in long island new york but want to know what I can do over the summer before senior year to really set myself apart. I am going to work in a hospital or program like that on weekends but really need to do something special to get into my dream school of UPenn.
