Chances at RSI, SSP

<p>Me- Junior at Phillips, Andover, parents from Middle East, live in MA</p>


<p>9th grade at public HS, had a 4.518 GPA</p>

<p>Sophmore Year-
Grading System on a 0-6 scale, 5 and 6 are honors grades, school GPA average is 4.5 unweighted (school doesn't weigh)</p>

<p>Sophmore English Fall-6, Winter-5, Spring-5, Final-5
Second Year French- 5,6,6,6
BC Calc- (5/5 on AP)
AP Chem- 5,5,6,5 (5 on AP)
Sophmore History (Fall,one term) 4
Religion/Philosophy (Diplomia Requirement, one term, Winter) 4
PE (one term, spring)-Pass
Java Computer Programming (one term, Spring) 6</p>

<p>In the Spring term, I had a 6.0 GPA (according to my advisor, our school rounds to the nearest .5). Only about .7% of students have a 6.0.</p>

<p>Junior Year-</p>

<p>Course......Projected Grade
Junior English 5
Third Year French 5/maybe 6
Organic Chemistry 5/6
AP Physics 5/6
Multivariable Calc 6</p>

<p>Organic Chem is a one term course, so I'm replacing it with Molec Bio Research next term.</p>

<p>EC's (Just the major ones)</p>

<p>Cross Country
Math Club (a bunch of competitions)
Science Club (placed 1st in school science bowl)
Mock Trial (co-founder and co-president, this will be our first year)
Summer job at a small company, helped them make a website, isn't much though</p>

<p>I'm guessing my PSATs were something like high 60s/lows 70s verbal, 80 math, low-mid 70s writing. My SAT II (IIC and Chem) are both 800's.</p>

<p>I can definetly get great rec's.</p>

<p>So what are my chances at RSI and SSP?</p>

<p>Also, how important are these in college admissions?</p>

<p>29 views no replies?</p>

<p>chances are very hard to tell if the person is a junior. </p>

<p>but im sure you can get into RSI or SSP if you keep it up man! </p>

<p>goood luck dude</p>

<p>Any more info?</p>

<p>I'm bad at chosing titles for threads....</p>

<p>RSI and SSP are a mystery....really...</p>

<p>For college...just keep it up and see how you compare to former Andover students.</p>

<p>Will having no previous research hurt me a lot?</p>

<p>, not necessarily...</p>

<p>ask the RSI people.</p>

<p>You mean CEE? Or just rickoids on this thread?</p>

<p>Rickoids on the thread....</p>

<p>There have been a bunch of people that haven't done research...</p>

<p>Well where they?</p>

<p>Do you know anything about them like what other cool Stats they had? Maybe how I compare?</p>

<p>bump (chars)</p>

<p>Go to the RSI Introduction Thread 2005 and some people have posted their stats....I think altairaqua didn't do research and neither did Rivetta...</p>
