I'm a rising Senior currently infatuated with college admissions. I'm nervous about applying and I really want to get a good idea of where I have a shot at.
I am applying to the following schools (in order of preference)
UMich, NYU Stern, Emory/Georgetown, UNC.
I'm also applying to Cornell (its a LOOONG shot, but its my dream school - I'll never know if I could get in if I don't apply ;))</p>
<p>I am a North Carolina resident.
I am a minority.
I WILL be applying for financial aid.
I attended a small charter school my freshman year and then transferred into a public school for my sophomore year.

SAT II: Have not taken, plan on taking two in October.

<p>and the following is my schedule for my Senior Year:

<p>I'm pretty content with my ECs.
Freshman year: Swimming, Math Club, Environmental Club, and FOGANA (a South Asian cultural competitive club which I competed in at National level and placed third)</p>
<p>Sophomore year: I transferred out of charter school and into a public school so I had the opportunity to join more clubs - Interact, Multicultural Society, Spanish Club, and DECA. I placed fourth in Technical Sales at State level with DECA.</p>
<p>Junior Year: Junior year is where my leadership came out. I was elected as President of my schools DECA Chapter and I helped increase membership from 130 members to 218 members, making our schools chapter the second largest in the state. I placed 1st in International Business at State Level, 2nd in Technical Sales and Top Test Score for Tech Sales at State Level, and was elected as one of NC DECA's six state officers chosen to represent almost 40,000 marketing students in the state. I also placed Fifth at International competition for my International Business plan. During my junior year I also stayed involved with Multicultural Society and Interact and also joined NHS, NSHS, and Key Club. I also got an internship at Fox News Charlotte and I attended Project Uplift, a summer program for rising seniors and prospective students held at UNC Chapel Hill.</p>
<p>I also have 200+ community service hours through FOGANA, DECA, and volunteering with a local childrens library.</p>
