Entering my Junior year this fall. I have not taken the SAT’s or ACT’S. Let me know what scores I should settle for once I take them this fall. I realize I haven’t finished Junior or Senior so I lack a lot of grades and an SAT score. Assume I am still a B+/A student. Give me any advice/info you can as of right now. Thanks!

Born in Syracuse, parent attended Syracuse University. Planning on getting an interview to beef up my application.

EC’s:
DeMolay- Youth Organization for males age 12-21. Led my local Chapter as an Elected Master Councilor. Basically I was elected by my peers (roughly 30 members) to schedule and execute a 6 month term. Included hours of community service. I was also a State Officer for PA DeMolay for 3 years as of now. I helped lead at least hundred members from chapters all of PA DeMolay looks very good on a scholarship especially if you take a leadership role like myself (from what I hear). DeMolay is involved with the Masons, Rainbow, Job's Daughters, and Eastern Star. It is a good connection with a member of those groups.
