9: 1 AP (Environmental), almost all honor other classes
10: 2 AP (CS Principles and Biology), and pretty much all other honor classes
11: 5 APs (CSA, APUSH, Psych, Physics I, English 11), some standard classes (needed to graduate) and some honor classes filling the other gaps
12 (expected): 3 APs (English 12, Calc AB, Econ). I decided to pick classes I know I’m genuinely going to enjoy, such as anatomy and finance
Important to note, I took an online chemistry class through BYU freshman year to be eligible for AP BIology as a sophomore, which I completed and was indeed the only sophomore in my class. Junior year I found out the credit from BYU isnt valid by my highschool and it was removed from my transcript. I would of taken AP Chem as a a senior, but I need to take GT Chemistry first. Since this isnt possible since Im about to be a senior, im taking GT chem as a senior. I could use advice as to whether or not to report the class, as I did get a B, which would bring down my GPA.
Umm honestly not many unfortunately. States 2x in a row for science olympiad. Won a few powerlifting competitions. Was given a “Student of the year award” by my english teacher, which is something i guess.
(Include leadership, summer activities, competitions, volunteering, and work experience)
Freshman year I joined some environmental competition clubs, but that was really it. Sophomore year I joined clay club, Science national honor society, science Olympiad, and coding club. Junior year I was promoted to officer in Science National Honor Society, and took over as president of Science Olympiad. I also joined coding club, HOSA, and co-founded a standardized test study/tutor club. Outside of school, I took up powerlifting at the end of 10th grade and have one many competitions, started working a part time job at a vet clinic doing bloodwork, and started doing competition Brazilian Jiu-jitsu almost every single day. I also do landscaping for an elderly family friend a few times a week. I have a small shop on etsy and ebay where I sell things, usually making around 200 dollars a month from that.
(Optionally, guess how strong these are and include any other relevant information or circumstances.)
Essays: Haven’t started lol, trying to get in contact with some of my teachers for some help first haha.
LOR: I havent actually asked teachers yet, I want to have my final list of colleges ready. I plan on asking my English teacher from 10th who is a family friend and got a 99% in all quarters of her class, as well as received the “Star student” and “Student of the year” award from, which every teacher can only give to one student they have per year. Second teacher is from my AP Bio teacher from sophomore year, whose class I was the only sophomore in and got a 94+ each quarter, as well as had this previous year that I also did very well in. He was one of those teachers who gives you his number and allows us to text him questions and hang out in his room, which I think left a lasting impression. I had him as a junior this previous year as well for biotechnology.
Cost Constraints / Budget
(High school students: please get a budget from your parents and use the Net Price Calculators on the web sites of colleges of interest.)
I plan to go to med school, so I dont want to pay a ridiculous amount. I have around 70k in college savings, and dont want to go toooo much in debt.
