Would I qualify for the College Prep Scholarship?
I am currently a sophomore in a public high school in Ohio. I was wondering if I would be able to qualify for the College Prep Scholarship as a Junior next year?
GPA (weighted): 4.5
GPA (unweighted 4): 4.00
Rank: 4 out of 422
PSAT: 162 (ugh I know it's not the best)
Income: around $75,000 (Only my father works)
SAT & ACT: haven't taken yet
AP: currently taking AP USH (only one available to sophomores, none to freshman; I will either do PSEO or take all APs in Junior year)
Extracurriculars (will continue all of them all 4 years):
Orchestra: all of middle school and junior high; Secretary; in competitive Chamber orchestra
Junior States of America/ Debate Team: Historian; just started by a senior this year, so I will hopefully inherit this club next year!
ProMusica Student Advisory Board
French Language Club
Laotian Culture Pageants (ever since elementary school)
Planning on doing a sport next year, either cross country or cheerleading
Hospital volunteering (just started, so no clear hours yet)
Buddhist Temple (at least once a month for one whole day; cleaning up the grounds and helping the community)
I am full South East Asian, and my parents are immigrants of the country Laos (I hope this will benefit me in some way; I'm definitely a minority in my area). I'm also Buddhist and am fluent in Lao, nearly fluent in Thai. My father is the only one in family who works, but he is getting very old and has tumors, with severe health problems. My sister attends the Ohio State University with little scholarship money, so that takes a big chunk out of our income.
I know my profile isn't outstanding for Questbridge, but do I at least qualify or have chance? Thank you for your time!!
