International student at Barrett Honors?

crsevencrseven Registered User Posts: 106 Junior Member
I wanna major in Computer Science (BS).

I'm an international student who has taken a gap year after HS graduation. I'm trying to use this year studying for my SATs (Yes, I know I should've taken them earlier) and get a proficiency in a foreign language.

My GPA can't really be converted into the 4.0 scale, at least that's what I read for CBSE students.
10th grade- 8.2/10
11th grade- 60/100 (%)
12th grade- 75/100 (%)

I haven't taken any AP classes. My TOEFL iBT score is a 90/120 (Requirements are 79, 85 in some cases at ASU).
SAT includes a 1520 superscore (Hence retaking it).
9 years in Piano, Trinity Guildhall College of Music, London syllabi.
I play tennis.
A few robotics courses, computer science courses.
Working on creating a mobile app.
Best creative writer in my school once. But yet I don't know how I'm gonna write a great essay for Barrett. (Topic available only on September 9th).
2 recommendations (one from my CS teacher, one from a counsellor)

What do I really have to do now to get into Barrett? SAT subject tests don't count for considering admission, according to Barrett's website.
