Would I Be a Match at Georgetown?
I have always loved both science and foreign languages. This probably seems like a strange combination, however, I find these areas the most interesting. I know Georgetown offers great international programs (SFS) and is big on foreign languages, but I'm not sure that I'm qualified. It seems like most people have better credentials (I'm not involved in science competitions because I have no free time, but I love my science classes.)
Anyway here are my stats:
Very competitive high school
Top 10% (we don't provide ranking)
SATs: Not taken yet
SAT II: Bio: 790
AP Bio Exam: 5
Taking AP English and AP Physics. I have taken Spanish since 1st grade and Russian since 7th grade. Took AP Bio as sophomore. Will take AP Chem, AP Russian, AP Spanish, AP Calculus, and AP English as a senior.
10th: National Russian Essay Contest (Gold Medal), National Foreign Language Honor Society
9th: National Spanish Exam (Merit), National Russian Essay Contest (Bronze Medal)
Also, poem was chosen for Literary Magazine.

This is not intended to be a chances thread. I just want to know if my stats are comparable to others at Georgetown or have I missed the boat?
