Hii I’m a high school junior. I’m interested in studying in social science, ex: international relations, communication and maybe a minor in art history or fine art.
I’m aiming for top 20-35 schools with in the US. I always wanted to go to risd but I think a liberal art school will be a more realistic choice for me.
-3.9 unweighted gpa (my hs doesn’t do weighted gpa)
- my hs also doesn’t do ranking but I would say top 20%
- I’m taking AP studio art, AP lang and AP comparative gov this year (I wasn’t allowed to take aps my freshman year and didn’t take any my sophomore year)
- I haven’t taken the SAT yet but I got a 1300 on my mock test (I’m definitely working to raise it up to around 1400 and above)
-I took graphic art, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, advanced drawing and painting, and is taking ap studio art this year. (which is almost of the visual art courses my school offers) I have gotten mostly A+ and is expecting to get a 5 for AP art next year.
- I will probably take AP macro, AP lit and environmental science
- I also took international relations and the study of Middle east and north Africa (I’m quite passionate about global news and politics)
-I’m a International student studying in a private hs in MA (no green card)
-I’m female and Asian
-I’m the leader of the Asian culture club at my school
-Been on the tennis variety team since 8th grade (I’m not really good tho)
-Heavily involved in international student events (culture activities and planing at my high school)
-Peer tutor Mandarin and english
-A part of my hs’s art program since freshman year
-Won Honorable mention for Scholastic Art & Writing for sculpture
-I went to a small private art college for pre-college program this summer
Brown&risd dual program is definitely my dream program to get in, but i know the chances are pretty low for me. I’m aiming for ED or EA for Brown and would love for some suggestions.
Also I didn’t take any language till my junior year (I was in ELS). But I’m starting to take Spanish this year. I’m not sure how me taking less than 3 years of a language will look to college, especially Brown; also should I be taking Spanish my senior year since I’m already bilingual?
Am I headed in the right direction? Does anyone have any advice? How can I improve my shot either academically or in extracurriculars to get in Brown?
