I go to a top-ranked public high school in the northern suburbs of Chicago, IL.
3.57 UW GPA (strong upward trend though; if you take my freshman year out I'd have close to a 4.0- and took harder classes my sophomore/junior/senior year)
33 on the ACT (33 English 30 Math 34 Reading 36 Science, 11 Writing)
1 recommendation that should be pretty decent.
Can't really judge the essays but they were at least adequate.
