I need some advice and any help at all will be greatly appreciated.I have recently come from one of the best schools in the Caribbean.We have a british system there and I have aced my O’levels examination with 8 out of 9 distinctions.Now,I just came to the U.S and I am now in my senior year of high school.I have taken AP classes in Biology,Calculus and English and I’m planning to taking some more in others subjects.Now,I’m in a reasonable school in Florida.I’ve found out that I’ve did alot of the work already and I have As in almost everything.
However,my guidance counselor has messed up everything for me.He has evaluated my scores in my previous school poorly and I have a GPA of 3.5 excluding the grades right now which could possibly carry it up to a 4 I suppose.I have just taken the SATs and I am awaiting my results.I expect a very high mark,about 1400+ as my friends got around the same thing and I’m at a higher level to them .I have read through some of the SAT II practice exams and I expect to also get close to full marks.
Now,let’s say I do meet my expectations.Now,the problem would be my low GPA,which I felt I have been screwed as the AP work is very easy especially the Calculus.I feel if I were in this system for the ninth grade,my GPA would be over 4.0.The work is very easy.Now,what do you think are my chances of getting into a Ivy League School? Will they be willing to take my senior level grades alone along with my O’ Level scores?
I would be classified as an Asian American male(I don’t know if this would help but I see this alot on these boards)…My EC’s are OK…too many to list out now.Any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks.
