<p>This is my first post, so bear with me.</p>
<p>So, I'm only halfway through sophomore year at a mediocre all-guys Catholic school, but I am really desperate to know if I am at least a candidate for Northwestern.</p>
<p>-Currently, I am shooting for more than 30 on ACT and/or 2100 on SAT.
-Unweighted GPA as of now: 3.875
-I don't know if this really matters, but I took the PSAT earlier this year and got a 185, putting me in mid to high 90's percentile of other honors sophomores who also took the test.
-I think I might be able to write a clever essay/application...
-I should be able to get some decent recommendation letters.
-Will most likely schedule interview, observe a class at NU, and apply Early Decision</p>

<p>Outside of school, I play piano every week at my parish, as well as participate in other youth ministry service.</p>
<p>Also, if someone could possibly give me an idea of financial aid, I am fifth born of six kids in my family, all of us go/went to private grade and high schools, middle class, white...</p>
