Hi! I will be a senior this fall. I am thinking of applying to a number of selective colleges. I would really appreciate your input on what my chances of being accepted to these schools would be!
GPA (FR-SOPH-JR): 3.8/4.0 unweighted
- all the schools I am applying to are test-optional and most have stated that not sending your scores will not affect your chances of being accepted*
I am not sending my scores.

I was on a committee to find a new band director for my school. I helped interview
candidates and give feedback.
I’m being vague about the activities of the clubs because I don’t want anybody from my school finding this. However, I am very involved in all my clubs!
-Human Trafficking Club (raise awareness and educate the community -3 years, 1 year President)
-Club that raised awareness about Native American issues and cultures (3 years)
-Club that would hang out with disabled kids and help them learn social skills (4 years)
-Animal Club (4 years, 1 year President)
-National Honor Society
-Tri-M National Honor Society (2 years)
Held Social Media Position on board (1 year)
- Italian National Honor Society (I’m applying this year)
-Spent 26 hours over the summer working on an animal farm cleaning cages and feeding birds of prey, goats, chickens, turkeys, and pigs
-Spent 12 hours playing piano in the lobby of my local hospital
-Spent 3 days over the summer in South Dakota working on a Native American reservation, helping them with anything they needed
-Spent a summer doing cancer research with a professor at a university. I am listed as the co-author of our findings, which will be published later this year.
-10 hours a week for the past 2 years
I am unsure of my major at the moment. I think it will either be Pre-Med/Biology or History with a minor in Italian.
University of Delaware
New York University
It’s really hard to determine what schools would be a reach vs a target for me as my SAT/ACT scores are not part of my application.
I really love Lehigh and Villanova, so I will probably be applying EA for both of them!
