<p>I'm taking calculus right now so that I don't have to take math at all in college. I'm definitely a humanities student through and through.</p>
<p>800 Critical Reading, 740 Writing on the SAT (610 Math).
3.43 average GPA but I'm full IB diploma. That means that my classes are IB calc, IB physics HL, IB history and english, IB theory of knowledge, IB japanese 400, and a couple non-IB classes I need to fill out my highschool credits. IB classes are similar to AP classses if you didn't know. Full diploma also means that I'll have 150 hours of community service, activity, and creative work on my own (ie 50 hours of each). </p>
<p>I took a college course last summer and got a 3.9 (in the class Math 095). </p>
<p>I'm on the varsity cross country team (and our team is pretty good, we won a meet against 40 other teams across washington and oregon). </p>
<p>I can write well and I've got some nice stuff to write about in an essay. </p>
<p>If you're interested, I was thinking about mentioning my early struggles with dwarfism and the bullying that came with it (I'm not noticably short anymore though because of extensive and miraculously effective medication - I'm 5'2" now). I had an unrelated-to-the-dwarfism heart condition that I also managed to get rid of after struggling with it during cross country (my heart would randomly shoot up to 300 bpm and I'd almost pass out when it happened during races). My parents have been fighting recently after 20 years of peaceful marriage and they almost got a divorce earlier this year. My best friend's mom died and I was trying to console him all year while battling with the heart stuff and my own problems at home. The near-divorce also strained our finances, although my family is middle class so that isn't that much of a deal. </p>
<p>So... I'm planning to go to a nice law school and I was wondering what my chances are for the best law schools in the country, like the ones at harvard, yale, northwestern etc. If I'm shooting too high it'd be nice if you gave me an idea of what schools I should shoot for instead.</p>
