Hey I was wondering if this looks like what Mt. Holyoke tends to like for music/anthropology majors:

*GPA: 4.09 weighted (going to rise)
3.82 unweighted (same)
*Rank: 31/317
*SAT: (they're not fair)..writing 610, crit reading 520, math 550.
*ACT: Taking it June 10th.
*9th grade i took almost all honors (I have 2 B's on my transcript and 1 b+), 10th grade i took 2 honors but got A's across the board, this year (11) i took 1 ap and 4 honors and have all A's. Next year, I am taking 4 AP's (2 AP and 2 ap weighted honors) and 1 actual honors class.

Extracurriculars/interesting facts:

*Played piano for high school orchestra in 9th grade

* (I might be writing for the local "free" newspaper to get experienced w/writing).

*I will be doing an apprenticeship w/Pittsburgh Opera (for high school students) next year!

    Erm... I hope that your name doesn't suggest that you're a boy, because this one is an all-women's college.
