What are my chances? - International student
Hi everyone! What are my chances of getting into Amherst? I'm a Gr. 9 student from the Philippines. I'm also considering Swarthmore, MIT, Bowdoin, Grinnell, Trinity and Hamilton.
1510 SAT (750 math, 760 R n W)
General average: 94.50
Class rank: 17/450
I am part of our honors class (top 40) which may mean I am taking honors classes.
Youth president of my local church (Gr. 8-Present) where I organize church activities and also helped with counseling of drug surrenderees, member of our school's society for christ, robotics club, and altar servers.
Attended 9 seminars on law, 30+ Coursera certificates (more in the future)
I also have some knowledge of Python and its use on machine learning, neural networks and using sequence models on voice recognition. I am also in the process of creating a simple android game which I plan on publishing next year.
Team captain of Tennis (Gr. 9)
Some volunteer work including tree planting, cleanup drives, and medical missions.
What I'm worried most about is financial aid. My parents and I can only afford to pay up to $3000 a year.
