<p>I know this is long, but if anyone could help give me an idea of where I stand, I would LOVE it~~</p>
<p>I'm currently a freshman at the University of Wisconsin. I didn't go to college out of state b/c of my parents asked me to stay near home to help w/ the family (I have 3 younger sisters and a grandfather living with me). I'm planning on applying as a transfer to Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Brown, Dart, and Columbia. I want to apply because Wisco doesn't have my intended majors (Asian American studies or Gender Studies). Here are my stats:</p>
<p>-Asian American girl
-fluent in Japanese
-competant in Russian
-competant in French
-competant in Korean
-can speak/write Danish
-SAT 1400 (will take again)
-planning on taking 3 SATII's...probably 2 English and a Japanese</p>
<p>-Homeschooled my entire life, straight A's, taught by my dad, a Phd professor at Wisconsin. B/c I've been homeschooled there really is no "concrete" way of judging these classes...but I'll list them anyways:</p>
Expository Writing I
Expository Writing II

Anatomy and Physiology
