GPA: (this is really complicated because my overall GPA is a weighted 4.0 but that is because I did so poorly my freshman year of high school and I significantly improved)
I go to a fairly bad high school. (Only the valedictorians usually go to Ivy Leagues. Everyone else is off to Rutgers, for the most part.) Then again, a lot of people consider my high school to be really good. Its in NJ, so its a bit more competitive than schools in the Mid-West, etc. Still, its really small and no one has ever gotten into a Harvard, Yale, or Princeton.
My rank is 20/200.
I'm also a very accomplished musician. (Violinist) I play at the precollege division of the Manhattan School of Music which is a prestigious conservatory. Also I spent the summer before my junior year of high school in Armenia for one month, volunteering in an orphanage. I am also one of the editors (I'm not the main editor, however) of my school newspaper. I am in Poets and Writers club. I am in varsity-debate. I am in mock-trial. And I'm on my school's cross country team (Varsity)
