<p>Hi, I will be senior in the fall, I'm instate, and go to a fairly competitive public high school. Also, both my parents attended UMD. I'm a girl and white.</p>

I am in the process of designing a cyber safety awareness week program for the county and I'm working with some local organizations. There will be various pamphlets, contests, and a short movie regarding safe social networking, prevention of cyber bullying, and general cyber ethics. Also three other students and I attended the UMD High School Programming competition for 2 years.

<p>Major: Comp Sci</p>
<p>In my essays I plan to talk about my passion for comp sci and how I taught myself a whole computer science course over the summer (after freshmen year) and later taught myself how to program in C++, among other topics. I did all of this independently and it was not required of me.</p>
<p>If I get in, I'll most likely attend.
What are my chances? Also, do I have a chance at getting into Honors/Scholars?</p>
