Hi guys, I'm writing this in a midst of a freakout. BU is a perfect school for me, which is why I applied Early Decision II. I had this interview with this lady at AU, and she pointed out how badly I did at school. I mean, its average, and in my school, its well above average. I've also dealt with anxiety for the majority of my high school. I don't know if I'll get in. Here are my stats, will someone give me an objective POV because I don't believe my friends anymore - they're biased.
PS: I applied to the CGS too, but my field of study is in CAS
GPA: right now, it's an 88/100. That's a steady increase in comparison to my other years, but my first-semester report card is tomorrow, so I'm not sure. It may have gone down to an 85.
Classes: I have 5 APs(Chem, Phys, Bio, Calc I, American Gov), 1 Honors(English), and 5 mandatory by the gov curriculum (sports, religious studies, quranic recitation, arabic, PAL gov) The issue is here, though. My grades aren't great. I have more B's than A's, and I have two or one C per year. Would BU overlook that? I got a C in Geometry and Algebra I in 9th and 10th, and C's in Arabic 2/3 years reported between freshman and junior year. I think I also got a C in physics in one semester but fixed it the next one.
Extracurriculars: My strong point. Inside of school:
-Dance(1 year) -Research (3 years) -Student gov(1 year) -Student newspaper (2 years) -book club (2 years) -theology club (1 year) -science fair (1 year) -internship (a few weeks)
Outside of school: -summer camp -USAID humanitarian packaging -hospital volunteering for disabled -raised money for orphanage -music
SAT score: 600 eng, 590 math, 20/24 essay
Rec letters: Trustworthy people, one from chem teacher, other from social studies teacher, and another from my camp recruiter. I trust they're strong.
Essays: Great, hopefully. Had multiple read through personal statement and my Why BU. I'm also pretty good at writing so I trust those are fine.
I need reassurance, or a reality check. Help?
