Chance me (Boston College)

Hi! Just curious:
- High School: Small public school, but a highly renowned one. Blue Ribbon school, extremely competitive. I also don't anticipate many people to be applying to BC, but those who do will be strong competitors.
- GPA: 3.95 unweighted, 4.50 weighted
- AP Classes: APUSH, AP Euro, AP Lang, Ap Lit, AP Bio, AP Spanish (not a ton, but my school doesn't allow us to take AP's until Junior year, and there aren't many to choose from) + 2 dual-enrollment classes
- ACT: 30

- JV Field hockey freshman year, Varsity sophomore-senior, & I won a section award last year
- Yearbook member for three years, VP last year and president this year
- VP of human rights club
- Chief editor of school video news
- Member of student govt, for four years. I haven't been interested in holding an officer position but I help out consistently.
- Various volunteering efforts, most notably with a local historical site, an animal shelter, and with NHS
- Internship with a local newspaper for most of the last summer
- Part-time job starting mid junior year ~6-10 hrs a week

I haven't worked on supplementals yet but my common app essay is, I think, very strong; Writing has always been my strong suit, and I wrote about a particularly poignant topic regarding my upbringing which is very important to me and I think it shows.

I plan to apply ED, so hoping this will help because BC is my top choice. Thanks!

    Check out Boston College common data set and see where you fit in stat-wise. I think your ACT is on the lower side-- do you have other test scores you can submit or have time for a retake? (AP exams?) ED you have a decent shot--best of luck.

    You have an interesting set of ecs and may be something different with the art background. Your academics are amazing. Congrats. I’m sure you realize it’s a reach for everyone and a high reach for most in 2020. 8 out 10 really talented and amazing students end up with a tough decision. All end up somewhere great in the end. You will too.
