I would appreciate it if you took a few minutes to honestly chance me on my possibility of receiving admission into Stanford for Restricted Early Action
I currently attend the North Carolina School of Math and Science, a public boarding school that admits students through admissions much like a college. There is no class rank, as the school's policy believes that it would be detrimental to have the state's highest performers compete against each other.
My Current Achievements/Grades are:
4.0 GPA unweighted throughout the 3 years
4.667 GPA weighted for Freshman and Sophomore years
5.704 GPA projected if I maintain Straight A's for this next trimester (we are on a trimester schedule)
2350 SAT Score (Superscored) (Highest Essay score: 11 from the 2 tests taken)
800 Math I SATII, 800 MathII SATII, 800 Chemistry SATII
AP BC Calculus Advanced Topics
Advanced Latin (School does not offer AP, but this is a 6.0 weight)
AP Physics B
Medicinal Chemistry (College level course studying advanced Medicinal concepts)
Research in Chemistry (Specialized course that required application, 10 accepted in school, projects described below)
Tennis Team (Varsity)
Science Olympiad (2009-2012): It is possible that I may become a captain next year, this is by far not definite
- Awards so far: Gold Regionals Chemistry Lab, Gold Regionals Helicopter, Bronze Regionals Storm the Castle (We are going to States this year)
Debate Club (2009-2010):
- Joined at my previous school, but did not do well (should I not mention this in my application?)
Science Bowl (2011):
- Joined, but was out-tested for team
Next year, I am planning on starting a club called "MicroFinance Club" with the goal of raising interest in the business of micro-lending to small-scale entrepreneurs, and setting up a system of lending for students to raise interest in possible careers in Finance.
I have approximately 450 hours of volunteer hours at a Research Medical Center at Duke University in a lab.
Additionally, I have worked with a Youth Group to volunteer at other miscellaneous places such as Special Olympics, and the International Festival.
National Latin Exam Summa Cum Laude (2007, 2009, 2010, awaiting results for 2011)
Science Olympiad Awards listed above
Conrad Spirit of Innovations Awards (International Competition) Finalist
BHALF (NASA Competition) Online Winner
North Carolina Student Academy of Science State Tournament 3rd place (Engineering Advanced)
over 20 trophies from Chess Tournaments
With Luck I should be able to expand this list by my upcoming Independent Research Project at Duke University
This Summer, I will go back to the lab that I previously volunteered at for a Molecular Biology independent project that I plan on submitting to ISEF, Siemens, and other various competitions.
I believe that I would be able to write well-planned out and well-written essays, as I plan on finishing them during the Summer, and that I could do moderately well in a College Interview
Thank you for your time, and I appreciate your honesty
