Hey guys, I was thinking on applying for Regular Decision at Emory.I'm planning on majoring on International Business and/or International Studies if I were to attend Emory. I was wondering if you guys could chance me based on the information I provided below. Thanks ahead of time!
ACT (highest): 27
I'm in the IB program. I was in the Pre-IB program my Freshman and Sophomore year. I consider my classes rigorous. Right now all my classes are IB classes. Also I've had AP US History, AP European History, AP World History, AP Human Geography, AP English Language, AP English Literature. I was able to take these in areas where I didn't have IB classes yet. My other classes are considered Pre-IB classes in my freshman and sophomore year. The IB program in my school restricts me from choosing away from IB classes, but when I do, I've picked the AP options

I currently have a job at Mcdonalds and I've been working there since halfway through my Junior year. I also had another job as a paper grader/tutor at the beginning of my Senior year, but it was cut short since the company I worked for closed the branch I worked at.
I don't want to be too confident but I want to say my essays maybe somewhat above average, but not too good (they won't knock your pants off).
Same for recommendations. I want to say they will be above average, but not too good.
Thank you for taking time to read my information. Reply soon!
