I'm starting 9th grade next year, and I am starting to think about college. I am really interested in Science and Technology, and I really want to go to MIT, or at least try and do my best (I understand that they look at a lot more than just what you did in high school).
For my classes, I have:
Accelerated Geometry (I'll have finished Algebra I and II, and I'll be able to do AP Calculus before the end of HS)
Robotics and Microcomputers
My class is size is 200, and though it's only Middle School and we don't get ranked, I'd say that I'm in the top 10.
I also play piano, and plan to do the Science Olympiad team. I don't really know what else will come up, but for now, do you think that what I have laid out so far is good? Is there any area that you think is missing?
I am highly worried about the athletics. I HATE sports, and I am worried that I will not be accepted to good colleges because I play absolutely no sports, and hate playing all sports. How important is this if I am good at other things?
It is extremely competitive, I know, and I know it's highly unlikely that I'll get accepted because very few do, but I would at least like to know that I was as prepared as I could have been, and also, if I don't get in at MIT, it's likely that I'd get into another very good school. I want to start planning now so I don't realize that I have to start thinking about college in my Junior year.
