<p>Hello guys. I was searching the web for some knowledgable people that can help me with my college choices and I think I hit paydirt right here! </p>
<p>Well here is my story. I am a junior at a pretty prestigious and competitive high school. My GPA is horrible as I admit I have been doing a lot of slacking throughout high school. This second term though, it finally hit me how much I messed up and I want to know if I have any hope left for being accepted in a good university.</p>
<p>Here are my "stats":
GPA: **My school does not do the 4.0 scale, but my overall average on my transcript is an 87.7%. I really hope to raise this during this second term of junior year and first term senior year, but I am really not sure if it is too late right now.
**SAT: Took it March, did not get score back yet.
SAT II: None so far, planning to take US History and Math II during June.
EC: Pretty weak here..Rowing club 2 years, VP of school computer club, 1 season of cross country, 217 hours volunteer hours, and some tutoring/daycare jobs (not sure if these count as ECs).</p>
<p>Long story short, I am just very concerned as I do want to get into the best college I could. Can any of you guys give me an idea of what college I should be aiming for? My major interests are really up in the air as of now. I am thinking of either business or some computer hardware major. Do I have any chance at Cornell or Carnegie?
I know my SAT score is still unknown right now but I am just very anxious to know what I should be working for.</p>
<p>Thank you for any input.</p>
