Hi, I'm a 17 year old Puerto Rican overwhelmed lol.
-I have a 4.2... weighted GPA, do not know my UW one.
-I have been in the National Honor Society since the eigth grade.
-My GPA has been ascending since the 9th grade.
-My first SAT score was 1290 (660 Math, 630 Eng). Took it in august and Will take it again.
-I took AP Micro and USH my junior year. I have taken all honor classes since the eight grade apart from that.
-My senior year course load would be considered heavy in my high school: AP Calc AB, AP Spanish, AP US Gov, AP English, Religion, PR History and Physics.
-I am interested in a political science major.
-Attended a Intensive Law and Trial program at Stanford the summer between 9th and 10th grade.
-Have been part of the Model UN club since 8th grad; have been treasurer and VP. Received multiple recognition and plan on attending a meet in UChi next February.
-I have been part of community service clubs and have 70+ hours.
-Was part of a public health internship.
-Law Club president senior year (member since 10th grade) and part of the school newspaper junior and senior year.
-National Hispanic Scholar
-I shadowed a lawyer this summer.
My family is considering an early decision/restictive early action to any of these two ivys. I considered Yale my dream school but I love the idea of Columbia as well. Would it be more advantageous to do restrictive early at Yale and show them I would definitely go there (and apply RD to Columbia) or do early Columbia with the legacy.
