<p>Work:
Boys and Girls club Summer Camp - Volunteered for 2 summers before I turned 16. Then I worked there for 2 summers (including this upcoming one)
Market Basket - cashier since Sept. 2009
Babysit for roughly 4 different families on various days</p>

<p>This Summer:
Working average of 60 hours a week between both jobs</p>

<p>Lots of great things here. Try the ACT or really dig in to raise the CR score, it's critical.</p>

<p>Im working on raising the CR score. that's my biggest goal for the fall.</p>

<p>Everything looks fine except for your SAT, which is arguably the most important part of an application. Unless you can get 2150+, an Ivy will be a reach</p>

<p>You might want to try for one of the two Bean Scholar Classics full academic scholarships given at College of the Holy Cross each year.</p>

<p>Do i have to go to Holy Cross to get the scholarship?</p>

<p>Yes it is one of the few academic-based full scholarships given by Holy Cross. They have one of the largest classics departments.</p>
