<p>Well, it's the time of the year when everyone is applying to colleges. Im in that same boat. But
unlike my valedictorian friends, my chances of getting into any institution are very very slim. I can sit and regret my previous indifference towards school- but that sure wont get me anywhere. SO in the state of being extremely nervous, and extremely hopeless, I finally mustered up courage to put my stats on display.. and await evaluation.
Here they are:</p>
Fairfax County Public Schools student considered elite</p>
Senior) 4.0 senior semester grades</p>
AP Lit, AP Govt, AP Us History, AP World History, Ap Lang/Comp, Ap Psych, Ap Bio, Ap German</p>
<p>Founder of schools Young Republicans Club
MUN- numerous awards at college & high school conferences
Amnesty International- president
German Honor Society member
Volunteer tutor of kids residing in a low-income South Arlington neighborhood.
Volunteer Fire Dept- emergency technician, night shift every Sat.
Employment- Lifeguard? If that counts.
Im fluent in Lithuanian, able to understand some Polish & Russian
Have been taking both German and Spanish in high school. Again, if that matters at all.</p>
<p>What an extensive list of ECs! No not really. These are activities to which I have dedicated substantial amounts of time. I feel that they are definitely worthy of mentioning, however, they are not anywhere near the amount of ECs I have seen listed on this site. Ah..</p>
<p>The only school to which I am even considering applying is George Mason, and that would be a reach. I honestly dont know what to do. :(</p>
