<p>United World College is my first preference, but Exeter and Andover sound great too. I would be applying for my junior year, the 2012-2013 school year, and I'm a sophomore now. I'm a white 15 year old girl.
-I have a GPA of 4.57 on a 5.0 scale (3.66 on a 4.0 scale). I've gotten all A's all my life, save the occasional B or B+ in Math.
-8th grade year, I was Student Body President and Team Captain for the school's Relay for Life team. (I don't think this stuff will count, but hey, what have I got to loose for adding it?)
-Last year I was in the French Club and the Drama club.
-This year I'm in the French Club, Drama Club, Rotary Interact Club, and I'm the Class Historian, and working on starting an Art Club. I'm also applying for National Honors Society.
-I taught myself HTML and CSS (web coding languages) when I was around 10 or 11 and now know it fluently. I'm also really into graphic design and webdesign.
-I've been independently studying Portuguese for about four years (but I'm nowhere near fluent =/). I hope to travel to Brazil, and someday, all around the world. Ultimate plan = Peace Corps after high school or college.
-I was accepted into New Mexico School for the Arts last year -- but I couldn't go.
-I've participated in National Novel Writing Month for the last three years, and reached the 50,000 word goal every time.
-I have a huge passion for writing prose and poetry, and also for visual arts and world culture and language.
-I wanted to volunteer at the library (my dad suggested it earlier this summer), but not sure that I will, considering my schedule's pretty clogged up already ...</p>
<p>Do you think I could get into UWC, Exeter, or Andover? I want this so so so bad.</p>
<p>And if you don't think I could do it, what do you think I could do to better prepare for the application?</p>
