I’m currently a junior in high school and want to go to a good school (not ivy), but I really need a scholarship in order to go. I plan on applying to the Robertson and AB Scholars programs for Duke, but I don’t think I’m as accomplished as all of the winners of full ride scholarships. What should I focus my time on now so I might have a chance at getting a scholarship?
ACT - 36, writing 9
AP - Chemistry (5), Human Geography (5), Capstone Seminar (5)
Classes this year - AP Physics 1, AP Calc AB/BC, AP Language & Composition, AP US History, Spanish 4

Mandarin Chinese class (outside of school)

Thanks for any help!
