I know 10th grade is a bit early to be concerned about where I want to go, but I feel that if I can receive some advice early on and be a bit proactive, I can accomplish my ultimate goal of getting accepted in to Cornell University Early Decision. So I'd like to present my accomplishments so far as a high school student and in addition some of the activities and courses I plan on taking in the future: Any comments, advice, positive feedback would be helpful to me.
As of now:
-I attend a public school which is rated #13 in PA (presumably helpful).
-9th grade courses were Honors English, Honors Algebra 2, Honors Spanish 2, Honors Biology, Gifted/ Honors US History, and Entrepreneurship/ Gym. I received an A in each class except for Algebra; B. My GPA for that year was a 4.33 which fell in the first decile (within the top 45/450 students; not sure specifically).
-10th grade courses are currently Honors English, Honors Geometry, Honors Spanish 3, Honors Chemistry, Gifted/Honors US History, Computer Application/ PE. Current grades are pretty much identical with a B in geometry.
-11th grade planned courses: have been submitted. Honors English, Honors Analysis, Honors Spanish 4, AP Biology, AP World History, Honors Physics. (Replaced Gym with higher level course).
