Hi, I am trying to apply for the mathematics major for RD
I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

I am an international student from China,
Currently studying in the Bay Area, in California. My high school is one of the top private school in the east bay or even in the bay area. This year is my fourth year in the USA.

9th grade: 3.6 weighted
10th grade first semester: 4.05 weighted
10th grade second semester: 4.1 weighted
11th grade first semester: 4.0 weighted
11th grade second semester: 3.76 weighted
10-11th grade GPA:3.98 weighted(I transferred from a school to this school when I finished the freshman year)
The total calculation is 3.81 weighted

AP honor classes
10th-grade honor precalculus
11th grade AP Chemistry AP Physics 1 AP Computer Science A AP Calculus BC
I did so bad in my AP chemistry and AP physics classes, I got B in the first semester and C in the second semester and that’s why my GPA dropped a lot second semester, every class else I got an A or A-.
And I studied French for 2 years.

Test scores
SAT 1340 (I will take it again in August and try to get a 1450 something)
SAT subject test(did not take yet)

Summer School Experience
I am in the precollege of NYU this summer and took two classes. One is macroeconomic and the other is the intro to psychology. I think I did pretty well in psych, possibly an A, but I believe I possibly will get a B or C in the macroeconomics class.
