<p>I'm currently a sophomore and hoping (praying) to go to NYU CAS and major in either Classics or Neural Science.
I attend a public high school in KY.
I currently have a 4.125 or something like that GPA weighted, and 4.0 unweighted.
I am #1 in my class, along with about 40 other students. We haven't really had a chance to stand out yet, course wise.
Here is my schedule (Frosh/Soph) and my projected schedule for Junior and Senior year</p>
<p>Freshman: Acc. Biology, Acc. Geometry, Geography and Civics (No Acc/Honors possible. It was horrid), Latin 1, Acc. English 1, Acc. Intro to Chemistry and Physics, French 2</p>
<p>Sophomore: Acc. Chemistry, Acc. Algebra II, Acc. English 2, French 2, Acc. World Civilizations, AP Biology, Latin 2</p>
<p>Summer: Latin 3</p>
<p>Junior: AP Chem, PE/Helath (Required), Acc. Pre-Calculus, AP English Language, AP US History, French 3, AP Latin, Arts and Humanities (Required, going to take online). Microeconomics/Macroeconomics (online, extra credit)Going to self study Human Geography and Psychology.</p>
<p>Senior: AP Physics, AP Calc AB, AP English List, AP European History, AP French, AP U.S. Gov't, AP Statistics. </p>
<p>I have gotten all As so far, and am halfway through my sophomore year. My lowest grade (nine week wise) has been a 93% and my lowest grade overall was about a 96% I think.</p>
<p>I took the ACT in 7th Grade with no calculator and got a 23. I took it again in December of 2011 and am awaiting scores. I anticipate a 30 or higher. I feel pretty confident. I usually get 33-35s on my practice tests, with Math bringing me down.I am quite good at math, but not to the standard some people are. However, I am very very excellent at anything writing/reading/English related. </p>
<p>Extra Curriculars: French Club, Latin Club, Junior and Senior Year I will be in French Club/French Honor Society and Latin Club/Latin honor Society, Academic Team (Our best Language Arts/Arts and Humanities tester and I start Varsity Quick Recall as a sophomore), Mock Trial (Team's Attorney of the Year as a Freshman among seniors and juniors, awarded by circuit judges), Dance Team, I am on the board for a local youth theater company, that I have been involved with since I was 3, Teen Library Council Representative,Teen Court (official court in KY where we do the prosecution/defense/jury for real cases involving teens in order to learn ourselves and exert positive peer pressure on them) and probably something I'm forgetting. After this year I will be in Key Club Beta Club, Environmental Science Club, Creative Writing Club, and Human Relations Club.</p>
<p>I am extremely active in various volunteer organizations. I volunteer one Saturday a month at a local consignment shop to help them organize their stock. In the fall of 2011, I assistant directed The Music Man, and earned about 25 volunteer hours a week for seven weeks. During the winter (jan-Feb) I volunteer every saturday from 10-5 with another youth theater in town doing work calls. I also attend the shows as backstage help.</p>
<p>My family is middle class, and I would likely require some financial aid, though I have already been approached with scholarship offers from some schools and organizations.
I am a Caucasian female, and my mother has a Masters Degree so, no hook there.</p>
<p>I think that's about it. So, am I on the right track for NYU CAS?
I'm very open to criticism, or any helpful comments, if you're willing to give it.</p>
