Chance me - 9 hrs/CS a week

<p>I'm half Asian, and I'm female. I live in CA.</p>


<p>PSAT - 198
SAT in Chemistry - 690</p>

<p>Weak, I know. I'm working on it.</p>


<p>I go to a school that did not allow me to take many honors or AP classes. So I took all the ones available to me, but still.</p>

<p>The two b's from 10th grade are due to illness. The teachers would not let me make it up.</p>


<p>2 hours a week reading to kids - since the beginning of junior year
6-8 hours a week in a restorative justice program for youth - since the beginning of sophomore year
2.5 hours a week helping my grandmother with her book business - since 7th grade</p>

<p>So the community service totals around 10.5-12.5 hrs/week, the book business is the only summer activity as well.</p>

<p>I went to the Jackling Intro to Engineering program at University of Missouri - S&T</p>

<p>I'm the founder and president of the Math/Engineering/Science club at my school. This involved scheduling speakers, activities, etc.</p>

<p>I work for the local tourism board finding out what places would interest teen tourists. I'm paid, but that money is used for business expenses. It's for a major, major city, if that helps?</p>

<p>Awards, Honors, Etc.:</p>

<p>If you can get solid ACT/SAT scores, I'd guess you'll get into Cal-Berkely and UC-Davis/Irvine. The ivies are all pretty big reaches, especially since you're asian (that's not a good thing in admissions). Your community service work is impressive though and if you play it right it could really help you. I hope this helps.</p>

<p>Ur borderline for CAL and UCLA - in at other EC's, i dont see u getting into any ivies.... unless u get ur sat up to 2150/2200+ even then, still reach</p>

<p>I need more specific advice.</p>

<p>Try for schools in between your targets and the ivies. For example WashU, Emory, UofM etc...</p>

<p>advice is, ur scores suck, lack of a rigorous course schedule (y not take some honors or more APs????, most applicants to good colleges have taken at least 4-5 AP's and majority honors) , average EC's at best, no hook</p>

<p>u got no chance at ivy leagues or schools below ivies, verrrrrryyyyyyyyyyyy smallllllllllll chance at upper UC's
only UCI seems realistic, even DAvis is a bit of a reach unless ucan explain why u have no hard classes</p>


<p>"I go to a school that did not allow me to take many honors or AP classes. So I took all the ones available to me, but still."</p>

<p>mehh it won't let me quote</p>
