White, Male, Senior, Fall of 2017 RD Applicant.
GPA: 3.73 UW; 4.39 W (GPA is low because I did poorly my freshman year)
My school doesn't do class percentages. I go to a competitive school
AP Eng Lang: 5
AP US History: 4
AP World History: 3
(I don't have many AP's because I am mostly an IB student)
I am enrolled in mostly IB courses. This year, I am taking 5 IB courses (three HL's and two Sl's). My junior year was pretty much the same and my sophomore and freshman year also had strong course loads. I have relatively strong activities: two varsity activities, sports captain, NHS, etc. I've done some activities that correspond well with my major: three years on Varsity debate and MUN.
GW is high on my list and I hope that having a sister there would help a little bit. I plan to major in International Relations. Please share some thoughts.
