<p>Other:</p>

<p>Work 10 hrs per week at my moms Cold Stone: help make the ice cream, work counter, payroll, and inventory
Also tutor at the public library as well as chemistry students after school
Lab specialist for my teacher</p>

<p>is this enough?</p>

<p>If you have an otherwise stellar application and are applying to be a chemistry (or maaybe another sort of science) major, yes. </p>

<p>What the heck is FBLA?</p>

<p>Future Business Leaders of America </p>

<p>and what do u mean by stellar like my stats?</p>

<p>I have a 4.58 unweighted
1780 but im retaking it im up to about high 19's now.</p>

<p>and is chemistry easy to get in?</p>

<p>Not necessarily, but an EC tends to impress more when it's related to your major. Since you said you were a chemistry tutor and a lab specialist, it seemed like the logical direction. But then with FBLA, treasurer, work, etc. then business or finance could be another direction where your ECs would look a little better.</p>

<p>Basically, your EC's aren't really stand-out or anything, so everything else needs to be really good. The GPA's great, keep it up, but the SAT, not so good.</p>

<p>Thank you for your feedback. What would a solid SAT score be to have a good chance at getting into this school. like 2000+</p>

<p>Definitely get a leadership position in FBLA...have you won any awards?</p>

<p>like for basketball and stuff i have some academic awards
i was a boy state nominee</p>
