<p>I go to a humongous high school (almost 5000 enrolled) in the Chicago suburb. It's pretty notorious for diffcult classes, especially the AP science and English areas. </p>
<p>Okay, I understand how this whole "chance me" deal lacks reliability most of the time and it's annoying for other people. But hey, I'd rather get some opinions rather than deciding everything on my own since I don't have many other people to ask.</p>
<p>I'm kind of obsessed with Northwestern. There's no where else I'd like to go.
Should I apply ED or RD? Which gives me a better chance?</p>
<p>So here it goes:
GPA: 4.15ish weighted, my school doesn't do unweighted. Grade trend is so so.
Classes: 9 APs by senior year. I didn't take any "blow-off" classes except maybe Psych.
Rank: top 9% out of 1170 kids
ACT: 34 (35 English, 34 Sci, 34 Math, 32 Reading, 7 essay... I got a 10 on my prev. test though.)
SAT II: I'm taking Chem and Math 2 this coming October. I need one more but no idea which.
EC: Pres. and co-founder of Amnesty International chapter... we hosted a schoolwide Food Fight event for Haiti.
Youth and Government member (3 years), committee chairperson (i'm pretty proud of this.)
French Honor Society (2 years)
Tae kwon do, (8 years) 2nd degree blackbelt
Played in the school orchestra for 2 years, had to quit due to scheduling</p>
<p>Volunteer: 200+ of instructing tae kwon do to 4~5 year olds
40 hours of hospital work, delivering flowers and balloons to patients</p>
<p>AP Scores: 4 chem, 4 Eng Lang, 5 Euro, 5 Psych.</p>
<p>I'd love your input. Thanks in advance.</p>
