What are some things Georgetown University would like to see in my application?
Hi, so I am a rising Sophomore in High School. I tanked hard my Freshman year and came out with a 3.8 GPA, not amazing for me. Next year I will be taking 3 AP courses and along with my extracurricular activities ( Track, XC, Band, Marching band, Theater, Student Gov, GSA, and Model UN as well as Youth in Government and Model UN at the YMCA) what would this look like for an Admissions person at Georgetown University specifically. Everything from what they would like and wouldn't like. I have only taken a PSAT and no ACT yet so I can't really state scores for those. I also should mention that I am extremely active in my community, am Transgender, and interested in majoring in Political Science and possibly Law for Grad school after going to Georgetown.2 replies
