I just really need honest opinions. I'm planning majoring in Advertising fyi. (ive heard that the school of communications is hard to get into which REALLY fuels my anxiety)

Weighted Cumalative GPA: 98.16 %

Plan Test Score: 22 (and im gona be honest i could have tried harder)
Planned act range was i think 22-27 and i'm really gonna work hard in preparation for the act
PSAT Composite: 168 (can do better...im a sophomore taking ajunior test)

i'm in all honors classes if that helps (with the exception of foreign language and religion). I also plan on minoring in Italian and I have gotten 100% in the class for both Italian I and Italian II.

Extracurriculars:
volunteering at the hospital
Italian Club
Sadd Club
Ambassadors Club
Softball summer league
Planning on getting a job once I turn 16
planning on doing newspaper next year
NHS junior and senior year
italian national honor society
100 volunteer hours for school by graduation

Please feel free to be honest and even suggestions would be helpful.

    Your test scores are a bit low for COM so noooo chance haha...as of now!! haha you're only a sophomore relax and just do the best you can in your classes. I honestly put NO thought into schools I even wanted to apply to until september of senior year and that's no exaggeration so I'd say you're wayyy ahead of the game as far as that goes. Your test scores will improve themselves significantly on their own with just another year and some change under your belt. That also says nothin about how you will choose to prepare for those tests (SAT classes and study books which will also only help you out) I'd say you're well on your way. You remind me a lot of myself in some regards so maybe just a few suggestions...put effort into the clubs you participate in. More is not better in this case, you just wanna present yourself as dedicated to things you like by maybe attaining leadership positions in those clubs. I say you remind me of myself because while I didn't have the slightest idea where I wanted to go, I knew what I wanted to do. If your passion is communications find something locally that you can involve yourself in in the profession...like a summer internship or something? I knew I wanted to pursue physical therapy and since freshman year in high school I volunteered in a clinic. When I was of age I was offered a job working in their gym and then a few years later offered a job working as a physical therapy aide and kept working there all of high school (and still do in the summers!) That above all was the most impressive thing I had to offer and there is no doubt in my mind that is why I was accepted in the accelerated physical therapy program..good luck
