Currently preparing for the Science Olympiad team.
Haven't taken the official test yet; average 2000 on practice tests.
Planning on taking Biology M & Mathematics II in January 2009.
750 on Biology M & 800 on Mathematics II practice tests.
This is all I know so far.
Also, for my personal statement I plan on writing about my role model, my favorite musician, and how I was influenced by his definition of "dream" and "passion" after listening to his music.
Although my heart is currently set on Harvey Mudd, I would love to hear about any other "private colleges in California" with computer science/mathematics majors, other than Caltech.
