<p>EC: High school basketball, volunteer YMCA basketball coach, will be working a job once I become old enough, Math Team, Engineering Team, Founded non-profit organization that collects used Bibles and sends them to places like Haiti, Ghana, Brazil where they don't have access to them, will probably pick up a few more as high school progresses</p>

<p>I am actually pretty good at science despite my low biology grade. I'm better at science that involves math (physics, chemistry, etc.)</p>

<p>Be a high school student. It is your one opportunity. Just do your best, take the most difficult course schedule you can that maximizes good grades and worry about this 2 years from now. :)</p>

<p>You seem to be on target, and it is great you are planning ahead. However, make up a list of many other universities where you also could be happy. UVa's out of state admissions are very tough, even for highly qualified students.</p>

<p>I'm also interested in Rice, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, and Illinois</p>

<p>You may find that 2 years from now your list has completely changed. Your courses look good, give it your best shot but remember to enjoy yourself and not get too stressed out about which college you end up attending.</p>
