Paid Internship this summer with Georgetown Medical Center. I'm biology and chemistry focused.
Volunteer with Red Cross, local children's art program (helped teach kids art two summers) 200 hours? I also do tutoring. I don't know if that counts for volunteering but I think that would be about 300 hours of volunteering if it counts.
Art portfolio (I'm sending in a copy to all schools). I've won some state awards for art.

<p>I'm definitely applying to Columbia ED, not sure about CC or SEAS. My school doesn't send many people to Ivies (like one each year), at least one gets into Duke for each class. </p>
