Ivy Chances?

poliscinerd12316poliscinerd12316 Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
I am currently a junior. I am fairly proud of my academics and ECs, but I don't know if they would qualify me for an Ivy. My guidance counselor and my friends and family are trying to push me to apply. Would I be wasting my time?

I would apply as a Political Science/Government major.

WGPA- 4.05
UGPA-3.7

SATs- Took only once- 2200 (CR 740 Math 700 Writing 760)

I have taken 4 AP courses and 3 Honors. Next year I am taking 3 more APs and 2 Honors.

EC:
Altar Server
Church Choir
Volunteer for MS Society
Model UN
Model Congress
Mock Law (Vice President)
Student Council
Student Rep to School Board
District Attorney Youth Board
13 Years of Dance
Cross Country
Indoor/Outdoor Track
Intern on both a gubernatorial and a state senate campaign
Field Director on a City Council campaign

I appreciate any feedback. Thank you so much.
