<p>National Merit Semifinalist</p>

Calculus AB, Physics B, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics-taking May 2005</p>

<p>Also taken 2 college courses through my high school (one from Syracuse University) and earned credit from Rochester Institute of Technology from tests in my pre-engineering classes. </p>

<p>I have a 96.1 unweigted GPA, not really sure what it is weighted this is the only score my school puts on the transcript. Ranking considers weighted GPA and I am 19th out of a competitive class of 604.</p>

<p>I've been in National Honor Society, Varsity Club, Young Life (a Christian youth group), and then not too much extracurricular outside of sports.
However, I have been involved in Varsity sports just about year-round since I was a freshman. I ran varsity cross country in the fall and played hockey in the winter for 9th and 10th then switched to running varsity year round (cross-country/track) for last year and this year. This year I am captaining the Cross-country, indoor track, and outdoor track teams as a senior. It was a really tough decision to switch and I made this apparent in my essay. Will the lack of variety hurt and will the switching sports make me stand out?</p>

<p>I have already applied early action to Villanova and Fordham, at Fordham my National Merit status gets me a full tuition scholarship and I really liked it so thats my safety.</p>

<p>I plan on applying to Penn, Georgetown, BU and BC and hopefully can get enough money there to afford it. How are my choices? What else should I look at? I had been considering Wake Forest and Duke but I don't know if I want to go that far (I live in upstate NY)</p>
