Hi! I’m a high school junior looking for opinions about my acceptance chances to BU, BC, Northeastern University, Fordham University, NYU, and Cornell. I would, most likely, pursue a major in either biology or hospital administration/management.
-female from NJ
-I qualify for legacy status at BC
-Weighted GPA on a 4.0 scale is a 4.6 (almost all As)
-took more than most rigorous courses available
-junior year schedule: AP Eng Lang, AP Biology, AP US History, and AP Spanish Lang, haven’t gotten scores yet but expect to do well.
-Self-studied for and took AP psych exam as well
-Senior year schedule: AP Eng Lit, AP Microeconomics, AP Government, AP Calculus AB, Anatomy & Phys (college course through local school)
-ACT: English- 31, Reading- 32, Math- 27, Science-27, Composite- 29
-I plan to take the ACT again, I know my scores aren’t great I’ve taken it three times already. Maybe I can get it up one more point, I’ve just had some bad timing in terms of life/exhaustion and then test taking
-Not taking SAT, haven’t done well in practices/PSAT
-Class treasurer two years, junior class president
-Planned/organized the junior prom, head of prom planning committee
-Editor-in-Chief of school newspaper
-Editor-in-Chief of a prestigious science publication
-President/Founder of a Boy Scout Venture Crew
-Club soccer team captain seven years, serious commitment 20+ hours per week distant tournaments
-Varsity soccer four years, might be a captain
-Freshmen orientation student leader (selective group)
-key club (potentially senior advisor)
-150+ hours of community service, including a project I started myself
-Tutor/Babysitter 50+ hours
-member of elite stem program within my school
-participated on select hs science team, won county title
-often a writer for local newspapers, have a spring internship next year
-and there’s a bunch more items but they’re littler
-Spanish Honor society, national honor society
-Amateur filmmaker, won prestigious founder’s award
-nominated for a prestigious school scholarship
-statewide personal essay award (won’t be too specific, but very very selective)
-HS Soccer above and beyond award
-potentially national business honors society
-Great college essay, very solid supplements. This area is my strong suit.
-One math recommendation, even though math is my worst subject. Close relationship with the teacher, should be great. I think it shows that even though it’s not a strong subject, the teacher still has good things to say about me?
-One humanities recommendation from a notoriously well-written teacher, good relationship there as well
-had familial struggle with serious sibling illness, that affected academic performance somewhat
Sorry, this is a lot of information. It’s similar to a previous post as well, but, what do you think my chances are? I know there’s no way to really know, but I appreciate any feedback.
