Hi! I saw someone else doing this and I thought it was an amazing idea since i’m a high school junior seeking to expand my college list. i’d love it if you could suggest reaches, targets, and/or safeties based on my info below!
what i’m looking for:
*my ideal school would be somewhere with a good amount of prestige (name is recognizable) but with also a good social scene and camaraderie
*although schools in the northeast are ideal, i’m also open to other areas such as cali as long as there is close proximity to a city
*like above, although it doesn’t necessarily have to be in a city i’d like it to be near one or at least in a college town
*schools I will probably apply to for reference:
syracuse, nyu, brown, uc schools, boston u
*major: i’m thinking either poli sci, international relations, or math (odd mix i know)
*latina immigrant (brazil)
*home language is Portuguese
*my parents went to college outside the US
*I will not be asking for financial aid, merit aid would be ideal but not necessary
- 3.92 UW GPA, 4.25 W
- no class ranking is done at my school
- attending a specialized high school in nyc
*Freshman: AP World and AP Euro and PLTW design
*Soph: APUSH and APCSP
*JR year: AP lang, AP human geo, AP calc bc, AP spanish culture, graph theory and number theory, math research
- SR year: i’m planning to take AP stats, AP macro, AP spanish lit, and either AP gov or AP pysch, multivariable calc, linear algebra
- haven’t taken SAT yet because they keep cancelling it in nyc, practice tests range from 1480-1510 and am hoping that i will have a 1520/1530 superscore by my third SAT. If I have below a 1500 superscore I think I will apply test optional to reaches.
*Model UN, all four years (vice president right now, very likely I will be president next year) there’s about 200 members. I have won various awards including some international ones.
*Student Government, Student Assembly, and Student Leadership for all 4 years (I am the press secretary for my student government and will be running for class president senior year.)
*Animal Rights Club (President and Founder)
Have led a lot of school wide initiatives and a city wide protest is in the works for May, expecting around 200+ people
*Animal Rights Coalition Non Profit
Nationwide coalition of animal rights club, offering resources, a curriculum, and coalition wide campaigns, website will be out next week and we already have some clubs signed up!
*Congressional Campaign Research Intern and Phonebanker (60 hours)
*City Council Campaign Intern
*Marketing and Communications Intern at a multi-million dollar company (doesn’t really fit the spike i know, but i am interested in corporate law so maybe i can incorporate it?)
*Best Friends Animal Shelter Action Leader and volunteer
*Interning at DA’s office (this summer)
thank u for the help! greatly appreciated
