<p>Hey guys, thanks for taking time to read this. EA Chicago. </p>
Valedictorian: 4.67 GPA Weighted, 3.89 GPA Unweight (1/463)
Classes: Hardest course load. IB/AP. Aiming for a Dual Language Diploma from the IB. Meaning that I basically have to self study another language. I am currently studying Chinese Classic/Modern Literature.(imagine AP Lit in Chinese...).</p>
Writing: Pending- expecting 700+</p>
-I gotta confess, not a big fan of school clubs. They are meaningless, time consuming, and unproductive (at least in my school). So, I spend my time doing things I am PASSIONATE about. </p>
<p>*Kerry Edwards '04 GOTV Field Coordinator (literally spending 5-6 hours a day, everyday for the last two months on this). I am going to help run the ground game in my district for the final four days. I am so excited and nervous!
*Kerry '04 Primaries Student Intern. Oct '03-Feb '04
*Summer Tutor- went back to China for the summer to tutor english for free to kids who are underprivileaged- can't quite put in words that whole experience. It changed me.
*Tutor/Mentor for a program that reaches out to help low-income kids read. I spend about 4 hours a week tutoring/mentoring the same kid throughout the course of a year. Really enjoy this.
*Volunteer at local hospital: 250+ hours.
*Science Olympiad Captain 10,11- school doesn't have this event this year...sucks so bad.
-won a whole bunch of medals, first, second and third place, at the state level. </p>
<p>Teacher Recs: I can honestly say, they are excellent. The teachers I chose to write my recs are like awesome teachers who really took the time to get to know me well. So, I read a tiny piece of their rec, and the recs are seriously AWESOME!
Essay: All I can say is, I've tried my best. Am a very good writer, and I like my essays a lot, esp. my Chicago essays. </p>
<p>One last piece of random info that popped into my head: I immigrated from China to the U.S. when I was ten. Did not speak English at first. Now I do, thank god. :)</p>
<p>Really aiming for Chicago or Penn. But, will be satisfied with either. What do you guys think of my chances?</p>
