Hi everyone! Chance me and I'll chance back right away
...NU? (top choice)
-high school class of 2012
-mid/upper-class suburban Detroit, MI
-public high school with relatively good reputation
-most rigorous courseload possible (8 APs taken by senior year)
-GPA: currently 3.6 UW, will work to get it up to at least a 3.7; 4.1 W currently, will try to get it up to 4.3 (my school isn't as generous as some others with weighting)
-ECs: varsity forensics (broadcasting), tennis, robotics, editor-in-chief of yearbook, Haiti relief organization at my school self-founded, etc.
-work experience: babysitting, lifeguarding/swim instructing, tutoring
-volunteering: ~200+ hours: Haiti efforts (plan on making a trip), Detroit summer relief work (painting/cleaning/gardening/providing day care to underprivileged kids), food banks, summer day camp counselor, Safety Town instructor, tutor
-essays: will write about my experience in providing aid to a country as unfortunate and destitute as Haiti (for NU, for the supplement I'll discuss my dual interest in engineering [prospective major] and journalism [note broadcasting, yearbook] and the uniqueness and outstanding quality of the curricula offered by the school, etc.)
-LORs: will ask my physics teacher I have this year for honors physics as well as next year for AP who really likes me (most likely great) as well as my current math teacher (also probably good); counselor's may be generic, who knows. She just came to our school this year. Will also ask yearbook advisor/AP Gov teacher, who, being a journalism major and all, will probably write a stellar one.
-hooks: female in engineering?
-almost forgot: NHS (hope to be president or VP or something as a senior), International Club co-president, Interact Club, high honor roll all 4 years (except maybe 1 trimester in frosh year, when I was still like the next-highest haha), national community service awards
Thanks in advance! I'll be elated to chance you back!
