Chance Me: Northwestern, Boston College, WashU, Michigan, Villanova, Georgetown

<p>Hello, </p>

<p>GPA UW: 4.00
GPA W: technically like a 5.5ish but my school weights strangely (I had 95+ in all classes with mostly 93s in APs)
Rank: 1/~120</p>

<p>SAT I: 2250 (even distribution between M, CR, and W
SAT II: 750 (Math 2), 750 (Literature), 740 (Spanish)</p>

<p>Course Load: All honors with around 10 AP classes (max that HS offers). I also took AP Statistics over the summer on my own. </p>

<p>My only major concern is that freshman year and half of sophomore year I went to a magnet school and my GPA wasn't too great (3.5). All classes were very rigorous/honors level, and the school is known for its difficulty. Once I transferred, I brought my grades up, and my grades at new school are what are counted towards GPA/rank. </p>

<h2>Extracurriculars (at old school)</h2>

<p>Won major awards for DECA (national finalist)
Part of Model UN delegation
President of two clubs that I founded
School newspaper
Volunteer taught business courses over summer </p>

<h2>Extracurriculars (at new school)</h2>

<p>Volunteer- Presidential Award for Community Service (I have 250+ hours of ComServ) from volunteering at library, and through church youth group, as well as a service trip.
Founded a DECA chapter at new school since it did not have one- won awards
Editor for School newspaper
Leadership position on National Honors Society
Leadership position on Student Council
Varsity Golf
Member of Academic Decathlon Team</p>

<p>Won awards from many writing competitions as well as states history competition
I tutor on the side
I have also had an internship in an area relevant to intended major (econ)
Taught myself German</p>

<p>I have an excellent essay and my recommendation is from my AP Econ teacher who is also the advisor to the DECA chapter I started- I believe it will be very good. </p>

<p>Please let me know what you think. I am most worried about my extracurriculars at new school and my transferring- it really fragmented everything. </p>


<p>You have as good a shot as any applicant can have at these schools. I’d all but guarantee Villanova and BC, and you’ll probably get 2 out of the remaining 4 (Georgetown, UM, WashU, and NU) just because of the purely random nature of admissions. No doubt you’ll have options come April.</p>

<p>Might also look at Holy Cross-gives good financial aid and has a Jan 15th application due date.</p>
