As I prepare to apply to college in the fall, i have a few concerns. Here are my stats.
uw GPA: 3.9
w GPA: 4.34
Class rank: 14% (highly competitive public school)
APs: Psychology, US history, Lang, Enivronmental science, Chem, Lit, and Stat
- marching band (leadership position for 3 years)
- summer apprenticeship @ a museum
- first chair trumpet in a youth orchestra and a wind ensemble (not including school band, these were both organizations separate from the school)
- NHS, NTHS
- Friends club
- all district band for two years
Colleges I plan to apply to:
Reach: tufts, duke
Regular: UNC chapel hill (in state), Northeastern University (EA), Boston College
Safety: NC State, UNC Charlotte, App State, USC (South Carolina)
I feel like there’s a rlly big gap between the regular colleges and the safety colleges. Northeastern is my top choice but I feel like all three of the regular schools r kind of iffy :/. I’m hoping in state will help me with UNC chapel hill bc it’s prob my #2. I just retook the ACT and depending on the results may even take it again. I’m hoping for a 32 and would feel better about applying. I also have two teacher Recs and a counselor rec. the teacher Recs are from APLang and APES teachers. I think they will be good. If there are any other colleges you think I should add or any advice about changing them around pls tell me!!! Thanks!
Edit: BTW I have visited almost all of these colleges (the only ones I haven’t are very local and I’ve been just not had an official campus visit) so I know I like all of them!
