Eager student's chances (HS class of '07)

<p>Hi, I know I'm a year younger than most of you (currently a junior), but I want to make sure that I'm not aiming for colleges that are already out of my reach. Although I have not completed any SAT I's or SATII's yet, I have taken practice exams and have a good feel for what I could most likely score.</p>

<p>GPA: 3.829 (right now). Should be 3.86uw by the end of this year ( I particularly stuggle with spanish which shows in my gpa. its my only non-A/A-)
School doesn't rank
SAT I Prediction: 2200-2250 (750m, 750w, 750cr)
SAT II Predictions: (750+) math2, (750+) US Hist, (750+) Physics
ACT Prediction: 32-34</p>

<p>School Type: Very Competitive Public (Westchester, NY)</p>

<p>EC's: Badger (best team in county) swimming. My school does not have a swim team. Co-headed a charity to raise $15,000.00 to help educate poor people in India, Investment club (3 years, VP this year, president next year (the VP is always presdient the next year)), math team (10-12), peer tutor -- both high school (biology and world history) and middle school (math and science)--(11 and 12), TV Film (11, 12. Its a new club, I'm the executive producer of our main project), JSA (11, 12: Secretary most likely next year; i've already started campaigning..haha), Chess Club (10-12), Habitat for Humanity (11-12:new club this year), school newspaper (9-12), play guitar in a band</p>

<p>Hook: Lived on four continents (Asia, Africa, Europe, North America), Indian (all white, jewish school), speak spanish (well 4 years of school), english, and hindi (can't write). Attended Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth for 3 years (skipped high school chemistry w/ a course from cty). Went on the People to People Ambassador Program in 2003, touring Europe. Started a publication to promote international awareness (compliments vast travelling experiences) and collect donations (working with unicef; goal by october is $20,000), first issue set for mid-feb. Hindu religion (not sure if it makes a difference b/c duke is methodist, but added it in just incase).</p>

<p>AP's: This year: AP US (est 5), AP Statistics (est 5), AP English Literature (est 3-4)</p>

<p>Next year: AP Physics B, AP Governement and Politics, AP Macro/Micro Economics, AP Language and Composition, AP Calculus BC</p>

<p>My top three schools are Duke, Dartmouth, and Columbia (incase you cared)
Major: Economics (quantative form, haven't pinpointed which one yet) </p>

<p>I understand that these are predictions,and could possibly not be accurate, but I just want to get a general feel to see if I have what it takes. I believe I am capable of achieving the estimates mentioned above.</p>

<p>ha "estimated" and "predicted" test scores</p>

My "predicted" SAT was a 2400 but that didnt seem to work out...</p>

<p>haha true, im just basing it off practices and what my SAT tutor has told me.</p>

<p>nobody can really give you chances...espcially without solid test scores..
Work on bringing up the Spanish grade...your ECs are fine.</p>

<p>I love the publication thing btw. I suggest, when you do your apps next year, send in a copy of one of the issues.</p>
