<p>Hi, I spent my freshman year in a Chinese edu system, sophomore year in a British A-Level system, and now junior (and future senior)year in an American public high school system.
My freshman gpa is like a 3.65 something, and in that year a Chinese article I wrote made it to a national Chinese newspaper. In the summer before freshman year and summer after freshman year and sometimes in between I interned at a major department store as a store clerk and learned a lot for a girl my age about Business. </p>
<p>My sophomore year gpa is like 3.85, as the A-Level program is British, I took the CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) last May and achieved highest grades in all three exams: Physics: A* Chemistry A* Mathematics a (A is the highest for math :) ) In sophomore year I was in the French Club and learnt basic French, and am the co-founder of the debate club of current events one friend set up. I was also the studies-rep. for my class and the Business Studies class monitor (and also raised my class's grades up 50% higher than other classes students' yay~~) Oh and in sophomore year I got 8.0 in the British IELTS English-proficiency exam ( highest mark 9.0) and 102 in TOEFL(which I plan on taking again... it sucks yeah).</p>
<p>Last summer I came to NY, my current gpa is like 3.78. I didn't take any prep for the SAT I, and I got 1980 (CR+M=1380). I already booked SAT class and wants a higher scoreT T 1980 is way not good enough. This year my ECs got a bit better:

Created my own website (and had 600 visitors up to date :))))) the website is information about college, like if I see some good information introduction about colleges, a certain part of the US maybe, or any kind of study tip, SATs, you name it: I post it up to let everyone see.
The website is doing a partnership with my old high school's club, my site is like a info-base for them :)
This year's current SAT II scores: Math 2 780 (I suck at Math yeah...) Physics 730 Chinese 800. Just took Phy and USH and Math 1, let's see how it goes~</p>
<p>Senior year I'm taking AP Calc AP Stat and AP Eco at school, and got accepted to a Virtual High School course in AP Psychology(my undying love for Biz and Economics... they say people who do good at Economics need good writing skls and math and an understanding of Psychology). I also want to run my own Chinese club <3 </p>
<p>Oh and I write a good essay~ ^^ And is not asking for any scholarships.
