Do you think I am "Ivy League material?" (Duke, Yale, Cornell?)
I am a rising senior currently, and I was wondering whether my qualifications meet what is demanded in order to be admitted into such a prestigious school such as Duke, Yale and/or Cornell. Intended major is bio btw.
Academics: 4.25 weighted GPA, 1390 SAT (I think I can raise it a little bit though to low 1400s), 26 ACT (I know that is REALLY bad, I know I can do better)
EC: President of HOSA, Treasurer of Tech Club, (I've won minor awards in both clubs), Treasurer of Student Government, Treasurer of Kindness Club, NHS, Boy scout (Haven't really accomplished too much in Boy Scouts, however), Volunteer at a local park this summer, Cross Country (captain), Indoor/Outdoor track. This year I plan on starting a club aimed at guiding other students through AP Macro/Microeconomics to sit for the AP exam (I independent studied these courses).
I know my focuses are kind of spread all over the place, will that be a problem? If you think I need more, what should I do.
