GPA: 4.5 weighted, 4.0 unweighted
Class Rank: valedictorian (1st)
I am FULLY AWARE that I should not have sent my SAT score. I only did so because it was 210 points above average and because I (for some odd reason) thought it would give me an advantage.
I am a Governor’s School student and I am also graduating a year early. I also have a Career Studies Certificate of Mathematics and Science from my local community college
Please note that my school doesn’t offer many AP classes at all and the ones that are offered are not the most rigourous. However, my Governor’s School program is entirely comprised of Dual Enrollment courses, specifically STEM courses.
I come from a very small, southern school. My graduating class is 157 and very little students go off to four year universities. I’m likely the only student applying to some of the colleges listed. The average SAT at my score is around 1130 I think.
I’m also one of about 10 or so hispanics at my school.
In case you’re wondering, I’ll have taken DE Chemistry and II, DE University Physics I and II, DE Calculus I and II, DE Statistics, DE Pre Calculus I and II, DE Research (course made by the program), DE ITE (basically how to use microsoft products). I’ve taken two Governor’s School courses from a previous high school that were basically World History I and II. Every other class has been honors that was taught at the honors level.

• I did Covid-19 relief by busking at my local parks to donate money and canned food to my local food bank, did this entirely on my own initiative (wasn’t through a club or organization) - I run an online Smartphone repair/refurbishment store
I offered a free tutoring service to fellow students in DE physics, calculus, and chemistry
•I did a summer internship with my physics professor at my community college
I really haven’t received any honors besides acceptance into two Governor’s School programs and an award in spanish III freshman year. I would have had another award or two from my governor’s school but my ceremonies got cancelled.
I also got deferred from UVA early action. Figured I’d just throw that out there. I’d be interested in having someone look over college essays as well.
