<p>I'm an Asian American male student going to a famous private boarding school in Massachusetts. I'm current in my junior year, and I just got my first SAT I score back.
My interests are probably engineering, aerospace or biomedical, but I'm also considering medical research.</p>
<p>My scores are:</p>
Math IIC 800</p>
<p>Probably going to retake SAT I, hoping for above 2300.
My school doesn't have any AP courses except for math and psychology.
My school also does not have a GPA system, but my grade average is I believe A-. All my math courses/science courses are A's (exception to one or two).</p>
Senior (planning to take)
Studio Art (a requirement, but I enjoy computer graphics/drawing)
These are probably the most demanding courses for seniors at my school, exception to Studio Art)</p>
AP Calculus BC
Physics (no AP or Honors offered)
<p>Planning to take AP Physics, Biology, Calculus BC, Statistics hoping for all 5's,
I know APs don't do anything for college admission, it's just for credits in college.</p>
<p>I came to the United States my 8th grade, stayed in Canada for 3 years beforehand, but lived in Korea for most of my life. I went to a private boarding school as well during 8th~9th, then went to another private boarding school since.</p>
Beatboxer for two different acapella groups, performed multiple times
AMC taken, got through, score not known yet but I know that I'm going to take AIME pretty soon
Math Club - probably will be head of club next year
Varsity Wrestling - total four years
JV Tennis - 3 years
Sub/Rov club - gone to competitions, got a high placement in NE tournament once
Violin - 8 years, continually been in orchestras/concerts and performing for more than 5 years
Internship Molecular Neurobiology Lab @ McLean Hopsital (affiliated with Harvard): around 200 hours over the period of 7 weeks, did daily scheduled work relating to PD and behavioral sciences, did injections/tests with mice and rats, etc. Will probably hand in a paper related to my work, and a rec from the researcher as well.
Volunteer work at a senior rehab center, played violin for the seniors (music therapy) total 150 hours, during breaks over three years
Computer Programming - C/C++, self-taught for three years, made programs (chat program, data handling/structuring programs etc)
Computer Tech - in charge of a dorm for the computer technology/internet, etc
Applied for RSI, if I get in, I'll go, but if I don't get in, I'll be doing NYLF-MED and the same internship at McLean Hospital, but molecular sciences instead of behavioral sciences.</p>
<p>I'm assuming my recs will be good, and that my essay (hopefully) will be decent.</p>
<p>What are my chances...:
Franklin W. Olin</p>
<p>I understand that most of these are going to be reaches for me, but is it a high reach? low reach? very high reach? Also, could anyone guide me on the test scores? Should I retake SAT I for sure, and one of the science subjects?</p>
