Rhodes or Emory??

<p>I would really like to get into Rhodes or Emory, but I am not so sure on my chances. Also, I am only a junior, so I have yet to do many things such as the ACT and SAT (both of which I am taking within the next month). Thanks for your input!</p>

<p>Interests: International Studies, Pre-law, Political Science, & Linguistics
Classes: Including this year, I have taken:
14 honors courses
8th grade- Physical Science, French I, Algebra I; 9th grade- English I, Bio I, French II, Geometry;</p>

<p>Go for the Rhodes Scholarship. England is cool.</p>

<p>emory and rhodes are both great schools, i know more about emory so that's where i can give you a bit of advice.
emory is a beautiful school with a great campus, greek life, and it's close to a big city. also if you want to get into journalism or something related to the news there NBC's or CNN's (or one of the news stations) headquarters are there
on t he other hand it would be an amazing experiance at Rhodes!
good luck with everything!</p>
