<p>Rising senior from NY.
I go to a very competitive school in upstate NY and my school does not have rankings.</p>
<p>My GPA is 3.5 ( I know it's low)
Honors and AP courses: geometry honors, Pre- calc honor, world history honor, AP chemistry, AP physic B, AP biology, AP literature, AP Calculus BC, and AP world history (self studied). </p>
<p>My ACT: 26 ( I took it for the first time in June 2011 with little studying but now over the summer I have been taking a ACT prep course and is improving. I'm going to take the ACT again aiming for a 30)</p>
I volunteer at a nursing home from my freshmen year to my sophomore year (300+ hours).
I also volunteer at a local hospital over 2 summer (50+ hours).
I am a special sitter ( taking care of mentally ill people) count as volunteering.
I also work as a host at a restaurant over 1 summer.
So overall I focused my ECs on volunteering :)</p>
<p>Thank you for reading this and please chance me!!! :)</p>
