Chance Me Please

<p>Hi! I was just wondering if you guys could help me find out what I need to focus on in the next year (I am a sophomore).</p>

<p>-I am a white middle class male from North Jersey Suburbs. </p>

<p>-I attend Bergen County Academies (#37 public school in nation. I don't know if they look at how prestigious schools are). </p>

<p>-I have a GPA of 3.8 (my school does not use weighted GPAs) and I am likely to maintain it for the next two two years. Also all of my classes are automatically honors or above. </p>

<p>-I took two PSATs and scored about 2050. I plan on taking test prep courses for ACT and SATs. </p>

<p>-I plan on taking a few IBs (my school focuses on IBs much more than APs), but have yet to decide on which ones. I am definitely taking IB History though. </p>

<p>-I am involved in my class council as a representative to my academy and I plan on holding this position. </p>

<p>-I am very involved in JSA (Junior State of America) and I am likely to become chapter president and I may hold a position in my region/state. I am very interested in politics (democrat). </p>

<p>-I plan on having about 150-200 volunteer hours by the time I graduate.</p>

<p>-I am on my district high school wrestling team, as the school I go to does not have one. I previously played other sports, but decided to focus on just one for high school.</p>

<p>So far the only prominent weakness might be your SAT score. Your extracurriculars and GPA look fine. I would only recommend to just study and bring up that SAT score. Good job on your other attributes.</p>

<p>You’ll be fine- the poster above might have missed the fact that that is your PSAT, not SAT.
Good luck, and I hope Gov. Christie leaves your school alone!</p>

<p>Uh oh I just checked my gpa on my school website and its a 3.7 . I am still likely to get a 3.8 this year though. Can this significantly affect my chances?</p>
