more, but no leadership positions, i.e., PUSH</p>

National Merit Commended, Wellesley Book Award, Photography Award, then scammy types like Who's Who and National Honor Roll</p>

<p>Work Experience:
Worked as a catalog model at a small band merchandise company out of NYC
UNC-Chapel Hill internship at the Cancer Institute (8 weeks)</p>

Took a Sociology 101 class at UNC-Chapel Hill, got an A-</p>

<p>Recommendations: I have two lit teachers who both claim me as one of the, if not the, brightest student with most salient comments etc...etc...one is also the yearbook advisor and knows i'm the only one who meets the deadlines, the other was the advisor for people2people. also a math teacher who i had for two years and hvae a good relationship with and sees me try really hard (i'm really terrible at math). Guidance counsuler(spelled wrong :() loves me</p>

<p>Other: Mom had a stroke when I was 12, and recovery has been erratic, slow, and with setbacks, which prompts my parents to go to Stanford University for surgeries, the most recent one leaving me alone for a month.</p>

<p>Applying as an English or Communications major for the most part. Early actioned Georgetown, and looking at Cornell, Hopkins, Wellesley, Barnard, maybe reach to Harvard?, NYU, UNC-Chapel Hill (both parents went there, grandpa is a professor there), UPENN nursing? My greatest worry is that I'm reaching too much and will end up going to Rutgers, our state school.</p>

<p>nice that you have such a good academic record despite personal dilemmas.</p>

harvard-likely not
rutgers-most definitly</p>

<p>I would think you have a good chance at Wellesley and Barnard, possibly better than UNC - does legacy give you in-state status? Good luck</p>


<p>Everything Except Harvard, haha.</p>
