GPA: 3.56 UW, 4.04 W
SAT: 570 math, 730 reading, 660 writing (planning on retaking this after my prep class this summer)
7 honors classes (out of 10), 7 APs (out of 10), w/ an interest in science, history, english, and the performing arts
Extracurriculars: Mock Trial (sophomore yr), Human Rights Board Member/Leader (junior/senior yrs), Confirmation Leader (junior/senior yrs), School Ambassador (freshman to senior yrs), CSF (freshman to senior yrs), Technology Assistance Team (senior yr--it's new)
I know my GPA seems really low, but on the bright side my counselor told me I'm near the top of my class! (Avg weighted for class is ~3.0)
Intended major: Anthropology/something somewhat history related??
Also I'm out of state (CA)

    Penn State doesn't really look at extracurriculars too much. Your math SAT is a bit on the lower end, so I would say to study up and definitely retake it. Work on your GPA, but I don't think it'll be a huge issue. I am majoring in biology and was accepted with a 3.75 GPA and a 29 on the ACT
