I know I must have +100 hours but I am not sure exactly how much. I have done a lot of service projects through school and through clubs but I haven't kept track or recorded every single hour because it's not that important to me to say I had this many hours... I don't think there would be much of a difference between someone with 100 hours and 130 hours anyway.</p>
this past summer I worked at Mcdonald's 20-40 hours per week </p>
<pre><code> I also plan to run in college if i can. I have had an unusually large amount of injuries that have slowed me down... I had three stress fractures and I had to take sedentary six-month break because of knee problems. But my junior year (my second year of running) I was able to run 18:29 early about two weeks into the season. but i had two of my stress fractures right after that and I then the knee condition. I went half a year being out of shape and wasn't able to start training until this fall. I can run 3 miles under 20:00 now... I know that by the end of the track season my times should be back under 19:00. I'm hoping to get down to 18:00 or under for 3.1 miles (5k).
I think I have pretty good essays and good teacher recommendations.
I submitted four portrait drawing for the Your Space on the Vassar supplement.
<p>What are my chances of getting into Vassar and the University of Pennsylvania?</p>
