Hi! I’m a junior at a small public high school in suburban Ohio looking to apply to the Walsh School of Foreign Service to major in International Relations next year. Based off the following, what do you think the odds of me getting in are?
GPA: 4.03 weighted, 3.7 unweighted
Honors/APs: taken honors Biology. honors English 1, AP European History and AP Seminar (3 on both), currently taking AP English Language and Composition (probably a 4 or 5) and Spanish 4, and I’m taking AP Statistics, AP Spanish, and AP US Government next year!
ECs: National Honor Society, Tri-M Music Honor Society, Art Club, Activism and Awareness Club, Spanish Club, AFS Club (president), Sources of Strength/HOPE Squad, Gay-Straight Alliance, the Spring Musical, homecoming float construction, and working as a volunteer camp counselor for the Red Cross
Community Service: I get about 100-150 hours a year for my volunteer work at the Red Cross (graduating with 200-300 service hours)
important notes to consider!!!
- I’m graduating with 6 math credits instead of 4 bc I’m taking calculus as a junior
- this year I am taking AP English, US History, Spanish 4, Chamber Choir (kind of like honors choir bc you must audition to get accepted), Physics, and Calculus
- next year I am taking English 4, AP Gov, AP Spanish, Chamber Choir, Sociology, Law & Criminal Justice, and AP Statistics
- I plan on taking at least 1 SAT subject test
Please be honest with me about my chances. If you don’t think I can make it in, let me know if there’s anything I could do to increase my chances! If you think I should look at another school for any reason please let me know!!! I appreciate any feedback you may have
Have a great day!
