This may be a bit too early to tell but I just wanted to get an idea to see what I can work towards. I am rising junior at the moment and my career GPA is a 4.3. My sophomore PSAT score was a 1650 but I am hoping that it will go up after a prep course and more academic experience. By the time I graduate, I will have done at least 3 AP courses and at least 12 honors courses. I do a range of after school activities: french and german club, chamber choir at night, student run a cappella group, and I am joining model UN and mock trial team as well as hopefully SADD (students against drunk driving). I also will have danced for 8 years. I help out with a middle school a cappella group and also babysit. I have done an internship at my state house (hopefully I will have another internship at a lawyer's office next summer). I am planning on majoring in political science and/or history. Thank you!

    I think it's a bit hard to tell at this point since you don't have any standardized test scores besides the PSAT, which taken as a Sophomore doesn't hold much weight. For right now, just keep working hard, keep your gpa high, prepare for the SAT and ACT, take as hard of classes as you can, and stay as active in your community as possible! Your Junior year will hold a lot of weight for your admission. I'm sure if you keep working hard, you'll be admitted. Good luck!
