I'm
Korean American
Came to US when i was in 5th grade. (I still speak korean alot better)
Live in NJ Bergen County
Attend Average highschool


Scores
GPA: 3.75 , 3.85 with electives (Do colleges count electives in their own gpa system?)
Weighted GPA - 4.5/5.0
Rank - 10/150 (top 6.66%)
SAT: 2110 (800 M , 610 CR, 700 Wr)
SAT 2s: (800 Math2, 750 Chem, 730 Bio M, 700 US History)
APs : 9 APs (Chem,Bio(5),Physics,Calc,Stat,English,Psychology, US(4) and world history)
I got 2 Bs 1 in junior(AP US History) and 1 in senior(AP English)
yeah.. i sucked in "american" courses.
Fresh man year : I took all regular courses cus i slacked off back then. Still got straight As tho. my rank went up from top 30% to top 6.6% (would this hurt me?)

Extra Curriculums ( Im really weak in EC)
3 years of football team( was part of state champs in 2007)
3 years of FBLA, Math Club
3 years of Marine fitness club(bronze medalist in once-a-year competition at Rutgers)
200 hours of volunteering at Valley Hospital
President of my church youth group (does this help at all?)
Mission trip to California and helped homeless ppl.

yeah.. i have like no leadership positions except my church but i doubt they would care about it. plus i didnt do crap in my freshman year so they are all 3years of activities instead of 4 years.

Recomendations : 1 good from bio teacher 1 i dunno (probably neither good nor bad)

Im kinda worried cus my school is not that great.
Usually 1 or 2 kid goes to ivy league.( last year 1 kid went to Harvard for the 1st time in our HISTORY) pretty damm long history too. my school was built in like 1921 or something.
I know its pretty bad
and like usually 4~5 kids go to good schools like NYU, Umich, CMU, JHU.

Please give me honest answers.
it would help me alot. thx
