Hello! I’m an international Asian male currently starting my fifth year in the US.

I go to a small but competitive suburban private school in MD, but the counsellor doesn’t start working with students until the very end of the year.

In terms of stats, I have taken the SAT once, and got a 1500(740 English and 760 math) which I’m retaking in May, hoping to at least super score to a 1540.My GPA is lacking a bit because I didn’t do to well freshman year and got a bunch of A-. As of now it’s around 3.75-3.8 UW and 4.1W. I got inducted into the Cum Laude Society, which means I’m in the top 10%, but that’s all I know in terms of ranking

ECs-
Independent research on an US econ relationships with Africa legislation at local university
Internship at USAID over the summer in Ghana
Volunteering at SOS village in Ghana
Article will soon be published on Ghanaian national news paper
Drummer for locally famous jazz band
Planning to perform w/ band to raise money for Samaritan Ministry
A Capella club leader
4 year cross country varsity
Going to my own hip hop single soon(not sure how this would turn out lol)

Recs-
Already asked for history teacher who guided me through the independent research
And the Ghanaian ambassador to the US whom I worked with multiple times promised to write a rec to Columbia

Essays-
Just started writing
My PS is about how growing up in with three different religions in the house (parents are Buddhist, grandparents are Christians, and lived in a Muslim majority province) influenced my identity.

Thank you so much!
