I am really confused for the admission... help

Hi I am considered? as an international student since I am studying in the U.S with my student visa... I am from Korea by the way!

I am currently in 10th grade, moved into NYC when I was 13.. It's been 3 years ,so I am 16 now :)

I am taking International Baccalaureate program in the high school that I am currently enrolled.

My school grade range is about 5+~6+... in GPA it should be about 3.4 or 3.5

I got my PSAT score back last week, 500/760 in English and 700/760 in Math... I am hoping that I will do better with my SAT tutor. I earned this score without any preparation nor help from tutor at all.

For my next Junior year in highschool, I will take IBHL Chem, Bio, Math and SL Econ, English B, and French Ab Initio

My resume is pretty strong I guess... Going for community volunteering, summer internship in a medicine company, Columbia Summer class etc... and a lot other extracurricular stuffs...

I really want to apply for MIT or Brown... So I already made decision for my Subject test.

See if this works out! Math IIC, Chem, and Korean...

I am most likely concerned about Korean since A LOT of people say 800 score in their native language would be useless.

    Well do you plan to stay in the US by getting job or so? Or go back to Korea?

    I agree about the taking the SAT2s in Korean. What is the point? Below a 800 is not too good and a 800 is meaningless so why take it? Top colleges seek students who stand out not stand in. Math 2 and chem should be enough for any school.

    Ask your guidance counselor to help you find out how your target colleges/universities use the language SAT2 scores. Sometimes a certain score will mean that you will not have to take a foreign language, or that you can place into an upper-level course that can be used to fulfill a foreign language requirement.

    You are an international applicant who has been educated in the US. You need to let each of your target colleges/universities know this so that they can tell you which application paperwork you need to file.
