<p>TJ is probably going to have many applicants to the great schools. Have you gotten your GC's input yet? I'd bet the he/she has a relationship with reps from top schools. You need a frank talk because, in a pool like this, LoRs will pull for all, but make it clear which they think are best suited to varous schools. You need to take a hard, hard look at what makes you stand out. Are you involved in any cultural, religious, social, political activities with others from Sierra Leone?</p>

<p>I have spoken to my GC only once about college and I go to church and many social activities with the mormon church although I am christian and I go to sierra leonean churches a lot... thnx btw... :)</p>

<p>I think you have a fair shot. Get your GPA up and shoot for a high SAT/ ACT score and I think you'll place yourself in a pretty competitive spot. See what you can do with the toy drive; starting something like that, if you can get it to be a big thing, can definitely help you, I think.</p>

<p>Thank you so much and if I get straight As this year I will have a 3.92 UW and a 4.2 W. I also decided not to take the SAT so that I won't jeporadize my chances of acceptance if I do horrible.</p>
