Hi, I’m going to be a junior next year and really needed advice for how to improve ECs and volunteer work in order to get into some good college (upenn) for business or engineering
School: Public High School
SAT: Around 2100 planning to improve to 2300 by November
SAT II: 800 in Math II and 800 in Biology, planning to take USH and Physics next year
Taken 2 APs, 5 next year, and have 6 college credits in Computer Science from my Community college
ECs: Been part of DECA for 2 years, year 1, I won regionals, year 2, I came 1st in states.
Vice-President of FBLA and unofficial chairman of competitve events
Computer science club, competed planning to place next year
Volunteer: Nothing really, I just have about 40 hours from my library
my academics are solid, but my ECs and Volunteering are horrible for the Ivys.
Does anybody have any suggestions how to improve my application, before its too late!
Should I be founder of a sci bowl, take part in AMC, do some research project, get a job, start a business?
Thank you so much in advance.
