<p>Hey. I'm new to this board and I'm not sure if this should technically be posted in the "What Are My Chances" forum, but I'd like specific feedback for GT; I'm going to apply there with EA and I plan on doing some sort of engineering (I've been looking at chemical and mechanical). I'll post a general topic with all my colleges in that forum, so I hope I don't get castigated on my first post for spamming.</p>
Senior graduating 2011
Florida... do OOS students get treated any differently in the application process?
Public School (top 4% of nation is the most recent thing I've heard of my school's value)</p>
<p>GPA: 3.9 (UW)/ 4.66 W
I have an obvious upward trend in grades, ending with all As junior year.
I'll calculate my GT GPA later. It says foreign language (2 units), but would a 3rd year of foreign language be included in the calculation?</p>
<p>Class Rank: 3/low-mid 400s</p>
<p>SAT / SATII:
Math: 760 CR: 650 W: 730
AP World History - 4
AP Chemistry - 4
AP English Language - 4
AP US History - 5
AP Psychology - 5
= <em>official voice</em> AP Scholar with Distinction, which I suppose I'll mention in the awards section. </p>
<p>EC's: this is through junior year, but the honor societies include senior year because I know I'll be in those.</p>
<p>FBLA (9-10), chess club (9-10), video game club (9), social studies academic games (9-11, VP 10,11), finance academy (9-10), Chinese club (10), FBLA (10 secretary), , spanish national honor society (10-12), finance academy ambassador (10), NHS (11-12, treasurer 12), Model UN (11), academic world quest (11)</p>
<p>Volunteered at local library this summer
Self-studied some Chinese and German
People to People student ambassador to historic Europe
Worked on Zybez for 2 years guaranteeing the quality of everything put onto the website, which showed me how to go about editing websites in HTML and whatnot.
Share-A-Pet. I took my dog to senior citizen community homes. 9th grade

AP Biology, AP Physics B, AP Calculus AB, Intro to Engineering Design, Chinese II, AP English Literature, AP Government/Economics Hon, AP Computer Science A (online)
I plan on doing a lot of math/science ECs. </p>
If I can, I'll send in an AutoCAD design I made during my internship for the company so that the contractors didn't hit the pipes for my city's wastewater treatment plant. I assume it worked since I haven't heard of a catastrophic event at the plant, haha.<br>
I visited GT and took a campus tour and attended an engineering information presentation. And I'm going to do EA.<br>
My teacher recommendations will be from a physics teacher and an English teacher. Once again, if I can, I'll submit a letter from the P.Engineer who I spent my internship with.
I'm going to write about my engineering internship experience. Any opinions, tips, whatever on that?</p>
<p>Thank you :)</p>
