Help the Sophomore

<p>Hi guys!</p>

<p>I'm only a sophomore in high school, but I think I screwed my life over. </p>

<p>9th grade grades:
Honors biology- B+
Honors World History- A-
Honors Geometry- B
Honors English- B
Spanish I- A
Band (Freshman audition)- A</p>

<p>10th Grade Grades Semester 1-
AP European History- B
Honors Chemistry- B
Honors Algebra II/Trig- B (was an A but it dropped)
Honors English- A-
Spanish II- A-
Band (highest in my school)- A</p>

<p>GPA currently is 4.125
Top 5% of Class</p>

<p>Extra Curricular Activities:
-Key Club
-Band Student Executive Board
-TRI-M Music Honors Society
-ISA (Indian Student Association)</p>

<p>I want to go IVY league, like Dartmouth or Columbia, but I fear that my grades won't let me do that. I live in Illinois, so I have Northwestern and University of Chicago, but I want to go to Stanford or Ivy. </p>

<p>Prospective Junior Year Classes:
-AP English III
- Honors Math Analysis (Pre-Calc)
- Psychology I/AP Psychology
- Business Orientation
-Business Management
- AP US History
- Band
- Take Spanish III over the Summer</p>

<p>Prospective Senior Year Classes:
- AP English IV
- AP Biology
- AP Calculus BC
- AP Government
- Honors Band (there is a class for Seniors)
- Business Law
- AP Macroeconomics</p>

<p>what are my chances?
Please help!</p>

<p>Thanks! :)</p>

<p>You're not ruined. All you have to do is just keep plugging, try a little harder to bring up those grades, I'm sure it's possible. Try to show more enthusiasm in what you do, whatever it may be. Eventually, you'll want to show colleges the real you, and that's who they want to see.</p>

<p>Don't say you screwed your life over or you will never get through or enjoy the next two years of high school. Have fun in high schoo, because, trust me, it can be a blast. Stanford may be a reach. Apply to some lower Ivies, such as Brown and Dartmouth. By the way, why do you want to go to an Ivy so badly? Is it just for the prestige, because that is a bad way to choose a school. There are plenty of good schools that aren't Ivy League. You may want to look into the "Public Ivies"</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I've wanted to go IVY since I was a little girl. But Stanford is equally as good. </p>

<p>Overall, I want to get in to Harvard's JD/MBA program. I want to go into business law, and for undergrad, major in economics/business law with a minor in psychology. Will my high school classes help?</p>

<p>I forgot to give some information last night. The last time I took the SAT and ACT, I got...
-Math: 690
-CR: 620
-Writing: 650
-Essay: 10</p>

<p>ACT composite- 28
-Math: 28
-Science: 25
-Reading: 33
- Writing: 28-30 I forget</p>

<p>If I bring these up higher will my chances improve?</p>

<p>Thanks so much for helping me out.</p>
