    GPA unweighted: whatever 95% is... (yay Canadian system!)
    SAT: haven't taken... PSAT predicts around a 2200
    ACT: same
    SATIIs: again, haven't taken. I'm going to take Biology, Math IIC, and French (I've been in Immersion for 12 years, that should do it).
    Rank: As in GPA,probably top 10 out of 650. As in overall... well... I recieved the award for best overall grade 11 student this year, which includes grades, EC's and a teacher nomination (so I guess that counts for something)
    ECs: 8.5 Sure not much research/math/science... but that's not me. I have tons of me stuff.... i.e. loads of music, field hockey, MUN.
    Course load (relative to offerings of your HS): 10 for sure. I'm one of 20 full french IB diploma students in my class of 650.
    Work and/or Volunteering: 4.5... sure I don't work, but school is my work. I do volunteer some though (not enough, but with everything else, it balances it out nicely)
    Private/Public school: Public
    State or country: Canada (AB)
    Top colleges you applied to, especially Ivies: haven't applied yet, but I'm going for McGill, UBC, Dalhousie (/King's FYP), U Vic, Queen's, Harvard, Oxbridge (one or the other)
    Colleges you recieved admission too: n/a

    wow that's a very high verbal mark we have right now
  • tanonevtanonev Registered User Posts: 723 Member
    Um, no offense guys, but aren't you overdoing the amount of significant digits you include? After all, an SAT subscore tends to vary by about 20-30 points either way...
