<p>I'm going to apply to about 10 or 11 different schools some small and others large and more well known. I have a 3.6 GPA i play rugby, I was vice president of my schools speech team as a Freshmen and Sophmore and I was voted most valuable speech team member as a Sophmore. I qualified for nationals in Speech during my Sophmore year and gave a speech at a hospital during Martin Luther King Day. I have first honors (I'm a Junior) have been in numerous plays and taken several honors classes.
My SAT scores were ok but not great because I became really sick and was sick the day I took them and I had also sprained my ankle during rugby. My Scores were 610-READING, 450-MATH, 530-WRITING. I've never been a math person so i think my score will only go up a little more when I take it again but these are my scores for my first take. My Subject test scores were 590-Literature, 560-U.S. History I know i can do better in these two because I took them the week after I got out of school and didn't get much time to study b/c i was focused on studying for exams.
These are the schools I am thinking of applying to:
U.C. San Diego
Mount St. Mary's
Franklin College Switz.(I have lots of family there and love the location and program)</p>
<p>I am thinking of being an International Studies/ Pol. Science Major. I am really new to this process my Mom is in college but she doesn't really understand the American way of applying to different schools ( we are Nigerian). My Dad went to Princeton but he isn't very active in my life. I really need help with knowing if I have a chance to get into these schools or what schools I shouldn't bother with applying. My Dad went to Princeton and has lots of connections there he said they would take me on that but I kind of don't want to get in b/c he has "connections" I want to get in on my own standing. So if anyone can help me it will be greatly appreciated my name is Hannah by the way.</p>
