So I know my grades aren't the best in science but I'm hoping I can make up for that with my extra carriculars and skills in language and journalism. I want to major in history or politics so I'm hoping my science grades dont' weigh me down as much as I think they will. I go a public school in CT that is nationally ranked and sends many kids to Ivy Leagues and Top LAC's. I haven't taken my SAT's yet(will be doing so in March). Also my course load is in the top 3% for challenging. I have some kick ass recomendations lined up and my essays will be good as well.
Here are my grades:
French 1: A
Math Level 2:B
Math Level 3: A
World Religions Honors:A+
French II Honors:A+
