What is my liklihood of getting accepted at Amherst? Also, how likely am I to get fin aid? PLEASE help me, i love Amherst!
I am a high school junior. I have a 4.22 on a 4.0 scale (3.98 unweighted). I got a 28 on the ACT, but I am retaking it soon. I am ranked 20ish in a class of 530. A few of my literary works were published in our school's literary magazine and I am a reporter and HR manager of our school's student newpaper. Also, I am president of our school's Diversity Club, member of NHS, and co-founder/vice president of Creativity Club (formerly the corresponding secretary of History Club and a member of Art Club, but both of them were canceled last year). I participate in competitive artistic roller skating and practice about three hours a day six days per week, with this I have won eight national and regional metals and this year I won Leslie Elder Michigan Skater of the Year. For community service (I do at least 11 hours/week), I work as an assistant for my former chemistry teacher once a week, I volunteer at the Michigan Humane Society every weekend, I teach a roller skating for beginner and advanced classes, and I volunteer and job shadow at the hospital near my house (which is nationally ranked) every Friday. Also, last summer I did a medical program at Michigan Tech, this summer I am doing the medical program at U of MD with the National Student Leadership Conference. This summer I also plan on teaching French to elementary school kids.
