My stats are kinda low, and I decided to not apply for ED 2 because I wanted to go to UCLA instead if I got accepted.

SAT I: 1460/1600(740,720) super-scored, 1440/1600(720,720) in one sitting, essay is a 21/24(7/7/7)
GPA: 3.76 UW(It has an upwards trend, I got terrible grades freshman year)

I don't have a lot of AP classes because I go to a small private school and they don't offer very many, but I've taken all the ones I could.
Senior Year Course Load: AP Calc AB, AP Physics I, AP Gov, Concurrent Credit(College Credit Classes) English, Anatomy and Physiology

Extracurriculars: ASB Vice President (Senior Year), Class Officer(Junior Year), Founder and VP of Bodybuilding club at school, Attended Evergreen Boys State, NHS Treasurer Senior Year(But nominated both years)

Awards: Haven't really gotten any except honor rolls and stuff like that

Work: I've worked as both cashier and waiter at my parent's restaurant since summer before Junior year, I work about 20 hours a week, 20 weeks a year.

Community Service: I've gone on a missions trip and I'm going on another one this year

Hooks: First generation college

P.S. I'm an Asian male from Washington state

    I think emory is low reach because of your GPA, but emory is one of the colleges that truly looks at its applicants holistically, so you should have a chance if you have great essays.
