Looking for some mentoring!

<p>I am a sophomore in high school and I am looking for some advice on my future. I will provide some of my current academic work and would appreciate it if you could guide me in the right direction.</p>

<p>February of Sophomore Year ACT:


Rhetorical Skills: 14
Pre-Algebra/Elem. Algebra: 15
Algebra/Coord. Geometry: 12
Plane Geometry/Trig.: 13
Social Studies/Sciences: 14
Arts/Literature: 14

**Class Rank:** 44/451 (*Top 10%*) **Cumulative Weighted GPA:** *3.9889* **Cumulative Unweighted GPA:** *3.7667*

Schedule For Next Year:

IB English A1 HL 11th
Advanced Broadcasting
Editorial Leadership-Broadcast
German IV
IB History Of The Americas HL 11
IB Math SL 11th
Chemistry II</p>

<p>Advice that I am looking for:
<em> How competitive am I making myself college-wise?
</em> What improvements do I need to make academically?
<em> Is it bad that I do not know where I want to go after high school? How do I find out where and what I want to study?
</em> Do you have any advise for me as I move on into Junior year of HS?</p>

<p>What are your geographical preferences, what do you want to major in, and what are your financial constraints for college?</p>

<p>Retake the ACT in Jr. Year, and keep getting good grades. If you keep it up, you should be quite competitive at many schools, such as your state flagship. Getting to the Ivies, however, require more than grades and test scores.</p>

<p>I would prefer to study on the Easy Coast, or in Germany if that is an option. But realistically that is not a major concern as I want to go to whatever university/college has the best program for me personally.</p>

<p>Financial aspects are not a major concern either, but a scholarship would definitely have a weigh in my decision.</p>

<p>I honestly feel like engineering may be a major I would consider, but haven’t had the opportunity to take classes that allow me to see if I am truly interested. (From what I have collected on this major, I do feel as if it is one that fits me.)</p>

<p>I appreciate your help by the way!</p>

<p>It’s hard to chance you without knowing your final ACT score, but if you get a 33+, improve your grades, and be involved in EC leadership positions, you will be competitive for some of the Ivies.</p>
