Alright, during my Freshman year of HS, to be honest, I didn't do too well.

My overrall average for the year was a 83, which I guess equivalates to something above a 3.0.

Anyways, my schedule will potentially look like this:


US History 11
Chemistry 11
English Honors
Math A3/Math B


AP US History
AP Bio
AP English
AP Spanish


AP Calculus
AP Physics

Along with that, I'll also have:

500 hrs of community service
Job at New York Hall of Science
National Honor Society
Debate Team
Music (i play tenor sax)
Volunteer Counselor at Summer Camp

Now, if I were to pull off a good score on the SAT (i.e - 2250 +), do well in the AP classes, and do all of the extracurriculars above, would I have a good shot of getting into brown or cornell?
Writing is my true strong suit, by the way.

    If you can pull off a 2250 SAT score, yes you'll have a pretty good shot, I think. Since writing is your strong suit, you'll be fine on essays.. just be sure to pick a unique topic and style. Good luck!
