Please briefly evaluate my high school life

<p>Hi, I am a junior attending an American curriculum based school in South Korea.</p>

<p>I get really tensed up these days considering the fact that I will be applying to colleges in about a year.</p>

<p>I just want some feedback on how I have been doing over the past few years of my high school life. </p>

<p>I have always tried my best to pursue excellence in academics since i was in elementary school.</p>

<p>Starting from high school, I have always gotten A+'s and A's. The lowest grade I got was an A- from an AP class.</p>

<p>I speak Korean, English, and Spanish. </p>

<p>I haven taken AP world history in my sophomore year and am currently enrolled in AP bio, AP lit, and AP psychology. </p>

<p>I had great passion for music so I have been playing the piano and cello for over 10 years and got 15 certificates from a standardized music exam from England. </p>

<p>I am also involved in Student Council, Model UN, NHS, school orchestra, cross-country and newspaper club. </p>

<p>I started a small orchestra unit and founded a small literacy club at school.</p>

<p>I am on good terms with all my teachers and friends. </p>

<p>I have not had any major problems. </p>

<p>However, because I know that my dream colleges don't just look for students with good grades and involved in various activities, I am worried that I might not be accepted to all my prestigious dream colleges. </p>

<p>I have not taken the sat yet, but I will this January.</p>

<p>On practice exams, I usually get 1300~1400 on the English sections and 730~580 on the math sections. </p>

<p>I am also going to take sat 2 chem, bio, and lit because I want to major in either English or biology...two very different subjects but still :p </p>

<p>Please give me any tips on what more I can do and roughly evaluate which colleges I can get into based on all these infos and also let me know what financial benefits in college tuition I can get as an American citizen. </p>

<p>Thanks a lot!</p>

<p>As an American citizen (I believe) you’ll be able to do the FAFSA and apply for need-based aid. If you need it, I recommend applying to some safeties. Many great schools will still give merit-based aid. That said, definitely apply for your reaches and your matches. Just don’t get too caught up in going to an Ivy or Stanford and you’ll do well.</p>

<p>Go to CC’s College Supermatch; it’ll help you find good schools for you far better than we can :)</p>
