<p>I'm interested in Cognitive Sciences/Psychology, so I'd be applying to H&SS. I don't turn 17 until mid-November and apparently you can't apply ED until you are, so I'll be applying EDII, in December. I'm applying for Carnegie Mellon's Pre-College program this year, but I'm not sure whether I"ll get it. Will applying ED to only one school in CMU hurt me? </p>
<p>My unweighted GPA is a little higher an 3.7, not sure what weighted is. My school has like a 50% Asian population and is CRAZY smart (we have the highest API score in our district, and our school's only been open for two years as compared to like 20 years for the rest) I'm not in the top 10%. I definitely am in the top quarter though.</p>
<p>I'm a "mostly A's, some B's" student but I got a C in AP Physics C last trimester. It looks like I'll have at least a B+, probably an A this trimester, because I've been studying much harder. If i get a letter of recommendation from my physics teacher will it make up for it?</p>
<p>AP tests: AP Euro 4, Calc AB 4, I'm taking AP Calc BC and Physics C this year, and self studying AP Computer Science and Psychology</p>
<p>My guidance counselor knows me pretty well, so I'll definitely have a great letter of rec from him.
200+ hours of community service to a school club and local food bank
228 PSAT (800M, 770CR, 710W), my SAT scores come out in a few weeks. I also probably qualified for national merit.
800 Math LII subject test, and I'm taking Bio E and literature this may, and maybe chemistry or physics.
Dance and Piano for 10 years, section leader for band (I also want to minor in music)
I know I need something to add, which is why I'm applying for CMU's summer program.
I'm Indian, which I know doesn't help my cause at all :( </p>
<p>Thanks! And are there any other schools (other than UCs) I should look at, considering my major?</p>
