    Your ACT is good enough. You seem rather involved in high school. Because you're a good writer you'll probably be able to write anwell written and interesting essay. My only concern for you is that your GPA is a little low. Getting good grades next semester would help your cause.

    You seem rather political. It's worth mentioning that Emory leans to the left. (to prove this, simply facebook "conservative" and "liberal" and you'll see a difference) However, with that said, Emory is not like.. Evergreen State or Swarthmore -- it has a strong number of conservatives, esepcially among the business majors.

    Also, the Carter Center is great for poli-sci internships.

    Yeah, my GPA is slightly awful, but I'm working on it.

    It's interesting that you mentioned Emory's leftist leaning, because I'm much more comfortable with Emory than say, UVA, which I'm also applying to, for that reason exactly. I'm rather liberal, but I'm quite content with the amount of political diversity at Emory.
