<p>Hey, I've been looking for college/university for what seems like forever now.
I know where I'd like to go (Stanford), but cant get in, and where I don't want to go, but can't get in.
I want to do Computer science and maybe a double major with something relating to Italian (not a deal breaker).
It seems like the best computer science schools are also the hardest to get into (Cornell, Stanford, MIT, Caltech etc).</p>
<p>My school has really stringent graduation requirements (30 out of 32 possible) and I took the hard computer classes and did well, but I also took the hard science classes (Chemistry sophmore year, there were like three in my class, but I got a C) and I took Physics my junior year (got a B) and statistics junior year (got a C, very difficult, lots of work).</p>
<p>My GPA is a 3.4, fairly sure.
My ACT - 26 (only taken it once - taking the SAT & ACT at least once more)</p>
<p>Not sure what else to include in this post, if you need more information let me know.</p>
<p>I am also trying to stand out from the high achieving students in my class because they are high achieving but they are only going to local schools.</p>
<p>Also, my school only has Honors English classes & 3 AP classes (Calculus (cant get into, taking trig) AP Physics (Physics was already very difficult and didn't fit my schedule & AP English (can't get into - didn't take honors English)</p>
