Hi, I’m a current sophomore at a Catholic high school. I was wondering what type of college I could get into based off of the type of student that I am. My dream college is Emory.
So, so far I have only taken the PSAT once, and got a 1220.
Freshman year, my average overall was a 92.
This year, so far, my average is a 95.
My extracurricular activities:
Girl Scouts- I am currently in the process of receiving my gold award.
SALT- which is a program where students at my school do hours of volunteer work to serve the school’s events.
CROSS- A religious club where we travel to a nearby nursing home to talk to them about our faith.
Health Sciences Club
Student Government- things like event planning
Junior Volunteer at NYU Winthrop Hospital.
Finally, my parents are both immigrants, from Finland and Italy, and I can speak Italian. I just wanted to add that because I know being the child of an immigrant immersed in culture can boost your chances of getting in.
So, what I want to know is, will my low grade in freshman year really effect me? I am a very motivated student who wants to become a doctor, would I ever be able to get into Emory, or possible an even better school?
