Just wondering everyone else's thoughts on my chances of getting to BU. Its my dream school and I want to know what I can do to prove I am what they want. I want to go into Computer Science and I am a Male.
I take AP classes in multiple subjects.
AP US Government
AP US History (2 year Course)
AP Computer Science
Honors World History
Honors English (1 year)
Next Year I am Taking:
Honors Advanced Java
AP Computer Science Principles
AP Calculus AB
AP Environmental Science
I'm hoping these classes show that I am challenging myself and also have a passion for programming and the computer sciences. I want BU to know if they accept me I will excel in their computer science department.
GPA (Weighted): Avg. 3.7
I have become much more hardworking throughout high school so I'm hoping this upward curve in GPA will help my chances.
New SAT: 1300
I have taken the new SAT once and I plan to again the the fall. I did not study this first time but I plan to study for the next time and score a 1400.
11th Grade Physics Teacher: Liked me because I put effort into the class and ended up getting a solid A
10th,11th, 12th Grade Computer Science Teacher: This teacher loves me. I do really well in computer science and not to sound arrogant but was by far the best in the AP Comp Sci Class. I convinced him to start a computer club, in which I now run along with him.
