I am only a sophmore in high school. I have between a 3.8 and 3.9 UW GPA, and a 4.2 W GPA. My course selection mainly focuses on Math and Science. I take the most rigorous classes my school offers. I've scored in the 99th percentile on math testing. I run both varsity indoor and outdoor track. I am part of my schools Key Club, Latin Club, and Science Club. I also plan on Joining the Latin Honors Society, Science Honors Society, and National Honors Society. I also participate in many science competitions Such as Science Olympiad, and thINc (NC science competition). I am also party of my churches handbells ensemble and choir emsemble. Ive been also playing piano for 5 years. I have many volunteer service hours for both my church and my school. How can I ensure acceptance at BC?

    You can never "ensure" an acceptance, but you are a competitive applicant at this point. Get a 30+ ACT or a 2000+ SAT and you stand a chance if you keep your grades up while taking AP courses.

    Thanks! I will be taking SAT prep courses to help me do good on testing, and hopefully Ill have good luck in my future :)

    I would suggest that you focus on a few clubs/activities and do them well. (Colleges prefer depth of experience over breadth.)
