GPA: 4.0/4.0 UW
ACT: 34 Composite (31 English, 34 math and reading, 35 science)
SAT II Biology M-790, 5 on AP Bio Exam
Rank: 1/119 (there is one other person tied for first because my school doesnt have a weighted GPA)
Rigor: every single honors class available (pretty much every class). School offers 6 APs (I can only take 5 because one is spanish et je parle francais): will have taken 4 by graduation (1 Junior year, 3 senior year)
I go to a Catholic school also, im not sure if that would help or not at BC.
Couneslor Rec, should have been really good.
I know that all my academic stuff is okay, its the other things im more nervous about.
Teacher Recs: didn't read, were def. positive but most likely not eloquent or very detailed (these teachers write a ton of them very quickly)
Essay: so I really liked my essay and got really positive feedback from those who read it. im applying to many other schools obviously, but i do really like BC. Here's why I'm worried: I wrote about being a gay catholic. Emphasis on the i can accept my sexuality and still compromise it with my religion stuff. Now I know that BC, like all colleges, is open-minded, but I go to a Catholic school and I know how many of the teachers and administrators would view my essay.
ECs-decent amount, but not really any for all 4 years and not a ton of leadership because i moved from CT to MI my junior year.
