I'm attracted to Amherst because of its exceptional faculty in literature. I believe I will thrive at a small liberal arts college.
GPA: 4.35 for academic high school courses. This calculation does not include the four courses I took at a local liberal arts college. I received an A in each of those courses. If I figure those courses (equivalent to AP courses) into my GPA, then my GPA jumps to a 4.5
ACT: 31 (English 34, Reading 34, Science 28, Math 28).
Waiting for scores on AP English Lang and Bio. Also waiting for SAT subject tests in English and Biology.
My rural high school only offers 6 AP courses. I took 2 of them in my junior year, and I will take the remaining 4 in my senior year. I've taken the most challenging courses offered at my school.
On track to be valedictorian in a class of 84 students.

I volunteer as a writer for my small town's website. Also, I co-founded and coordinate a letter writing program between k-12 students and the elderly members of our community.
Writing is my strength, so I'm confident that my essays will be strong. I have excellent recommendations from my high school English teacher, high school biology teacher, and college literature professor.
