This low GPA is due to the Cs that I got in a highly accelerated (magnet) middle school where I took high school credits and did not expunge them. However, once I got to high school, I have been consistently getting As with a few Bs in between (my GPA as I entered high school form 8th grade was a 2.5, horrendous I know). I have played varsity tennis for my school since freshman year and my ranking has consistently been in the top 4 on the team (and hoping to be the captain in spring this year). I have taken all the AP classes offered, including Calculus BC and Statistics. Also I have over 500 volunteer hours from hospitals and libraries. I also have excellent teacher recommendations. I am a year younger than the rest of my graduating class (I will be graduating when I am 16). My SAT scores are 2150 and 1450 out of 1600. I am attending a a special academy for students interested in being in the health field.
