I'm currently a junior in high school right now, and i'm having trouble deciding which college i want to apply for early decision (and if i fail...) which ones i should apply for regular.
I have a 3.7 gpa, weighted...i didnt do so well junior year...:(
i stand somewhere as number 50 among a class of 270
-Critical reading: 740
*Writing is actually my best section but when i received my score, i realized i got 8 wrong in a row...so i basically mis-bubbled on the sheet...SMH and i got a 12 on the essay
Im not sure if i'll take it again but definitely need some opinions
-Math 2c: 800
-US History: 800
All my classes have been either Honors or AP, but mostly AP (World History, US History, Language and Composition, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology)
I have two older siblings who attended Cornell University so they're telling me Cornell is my best bet, especially because Cornell doesnt look at your writing score. They also prioritize test scores and essay over class rank and GPA (on College board website lol)
-President of Asian club (yes really) ,aka TaeKwonDo club for 3 years *will be 3 years my senior year
-President of Sophomore class
-Student council representative 2 years
-Newspaper Editor for one section, 2 years
Outside of school:
-Babysitting/tutoring all 4 years of HS
-Job for 2 years, working to help pay for utilities at home, financial problems...
-Volunteer work totals to about 200 hours or more
-Kindergarten teacher at church
-Kickboxing/TKD since i was little (dont know if it even counts lol)
* I also started something this year about spreading the word about health insurance, and what kind of options are available to low-income families. Started after a dear friend passed away from a RAAARE form of Leukemia within two weeks of finding out. She never received a blood test in her life because she didn't hve any type of insurance
So its not an organization per se, but i've met with representatives from different medical clinics and insurance companies, so i guess this is pretty neat to add right? *
sorry its a lot to read...
I'm interested in Brown University, Darthmouth, Cornell, and as for my highER-reaches, Princeton (why not right? haha), Columbia and U Penn...
So how do you think my chances are at any of these schools? I've been using sites like MyChances, College Data, and Cappex...but it really isn't accurate ...at all considering all three websites have different percentages for the same colleges...What they factor in is just too different from each other.
