Chance me and I will chance you back!

<p>I'm a first generation female to go to college in my family. Cornell has always been my dream since I was a child and I am a rising senior in my high school and have applied under early decision and have an interview this Saturday with an alumni. I would like to know my chances.
I would appreciate it greatly.
I have a 3.8 GPA.
Act: 26 </p>

<p>Varsity swimmer for 4 years
Varsity water polo for 2 years. Culinary team member for three years.
Culinary captain my senior year, as we advance to nationals.
Culinary competition winners 2nd and 4th in state the past two years.
I participated in the Duke TIP program.
I was an alumni for NYLF. Where i spent a week in DC meeting legislators and congressmen.
Also I was nominated for Governors Honors Program, GLobal Youth Leadership Conference in China, and National Youth Leadership Forum for Medical students at Emory University. All are academic programs to further your knowledge and challenge yourself further than your normal high school curriculum.
I started a branch of Heart for Africa at my school and I have been the president for two years.
I am also Vice president of Model UNited Nations where we compete in conferences at UGA and Georgia Tech.
I'm a member of Beta club, Latin honors society, and the technical honors society.
I am also the member of the Latin club.
I have been volunteering as a medical football assistant for 3 years for our high school football team and have studied and learned under the team doctor/physical therapist.
I am an AP scholar and have taken the maximum amount of AP classes that my school allows.
I will have finished with 10 AP courses and an average of 4/5s on all of them.
My senior schedule is a full schedule with 5 APs, continuing culinary so I can compete at nationals this year, and continuing my 3rd year of Latin. </p>

<p>My AP classes consist of:
AP Human Geography
AP Language
AP World History
AP United States History<br>
AP Literature and Competition
AP Biology
AP Macro Economics
AP Micro Economics
AP Government
AP Psychology </p>

<p>I am also on a research group for student website development for the HEFG. It is an organization that is in charge of all culinary and hospitality academic changes in Georgia and the south east region. </p>

<p>I have almost 1,000 hours of community service, and will have over a 1,000 by the end of my senior year. I am a youth worship leader at my church and also a leader for autistic children in my community 1-5th grade.</p>

<p>I have doubled the amount of sciences and language/English requirements that are required by my high school and recommended by Cornell. I also have a couple of recommendation options which consist of my chef mentor who has watched my passion grow for the sciences as we will move onto nationals this year, a teacher which has been with me for 4 years, and a couple more that I think will help show my passion for sciences and my focus and determination to be the best at what I want to do.</p>

<p>I'm applying to:
NYU
Upenn
Cornell
UC Berkley
UC Santa Barbara
Vanderbilt</p>

<p>Your recommendation on my chances would be greatly appreciated and I will chance you back!</p>

<p>Do you have any solid matches and safeties? Do you live in CA and, if so, are you ELC eligible? If you don't live in CA then I'm not sure why you even have UCSB and UCB on your list. Most of these schools seem like reaches given your ACT score, no SAT II's (?), and no 4th year of math. Your ECs ARE excellent but, unless you are an athletic recruit, won't offset a lowish ACT/test scores.</p>

<p>I don't live in California but both schools have programs that I want.
My SAT Biology:620
SAT US History: 640
SAT Literature: 580
And yes I'm taking precalculas as my fourth year of math.</p>

<p>Please chance!!!</p>

<p>I think you are probably in all those schools except for Upenn, cornell, berkeley
Upenn and cornell are slight reaches. berkeley is more like a high match. You have solid chances though (: Good luck to you! </p>

<p>Chance back please! </p>

<p>I think you have a chance at Cornell because they tend to be more understanding of low ACT scores. UPenn and Berkeley are reaches because of the low ACT. I think you have a good chance though! Good luck!</p>

<p>Keep them coming!!!! Chance me!</p>

<p>Hi you have some great ECs which should help alot. However, I would really try to raise that ACT score by a few points. All of the schools that you are applying to are top universities. Everyone should have safeties so you should look into some. Those are low to high reach schools for almost everyone so try to balance out your list with some good match schools and a couple safeties. Good Luck with Cornell tho! you have decent chances there
oh and chance me please haha</p>
