-Lifeguard 11-12 (40+ hrs/ week)

Mostly all honors courses- currently enrolled in AP English, Calculus, Health Occupations 2 ( I'm interning with a local doctor), and honors Physics.
My essays rock (so says my English teachers) I don't believe SAT writing gave me justice.
Great recommendations from Economics and Honors English 3

Thanks for your input, I truly believe that I am paranoid about admissions

    Your GPA is great. And your ECs are phenomenal. You really seem like that athletic yet intelligent type. I'd recommend re-taking the SAT. You're probably going to be accepted into Northeastern as of now, but if you can hit a 2000 on the SAT, you can even aim higher for schools such as BC (which has a wonderful psychology program).

    You seem like an excellent applicant. If your really that worried you should switch over to NEU's behavioral neuroscience major. It's easier to get into NEU under that major because less people apply. Not mention it's a very distinct major when compared to a typical psychology major. NEU has an excellent behavioral neuroscience department.
