Introducing a New Expert Content Section: Careers
I am currently a junior attending a private boarding school.
-I have about a 5.4 Unweighted on a 6.0 scale (pretty much means a 4.0 UW)
-I should be in the top 10% of my grade (if GPA's were weighted, I would be even higher) and will likely earn cum laude membership
-My ACT score is a 32
-I've taken 4 AP's so far and have taken all honors classes when offered (as a junior, I am taking AP Calc AB, AP Lit, APUSH, Physics Honors, Spanish 4H, and electives). Last year, I took AP Calc A, and I plan to take the AP Physics 1 exam despite my school not offering this class.
-As a senior, I will take 4 or 5 AP's
-I have played soccer and squash for all three years but only at the JV level
-I have about 150 hours of community service
-I led a STEM Initiative in Zimbabwe, where I taught kids from under-developed schools about the sciences
-I am the founder of the peer tutoring program at my school
-I am a tour guide
-I had an internship last summer at a real estate company
-I have an internship lined up for this summer where I will work with a professor at Swarthmore in computer science, with a goal of helping disabled people (my passion is to help others – this opportunity was perfect)
-I will likely receive at least 2 of these leadership positions my senior year: prefect, academic honor committee, head tour guide, blue/white key, or table foot at formal dinner
-I am looking to study mechanical engineering
Any advice would be helpful! Thank you! Also, please let me know how applying ED would factor into my chances.
