What are my chances?

<p>Hello, I am a freshman in high school. I know it's a little early to be thinking about college admissions, but I have some questions. I currently have the highest GPA possible in freshman year, even though others do, too. My goal is Ivy League, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, NYU, NorthWestern, Emory, etc. </p>

<p>I am currently involved in a multitude of activities in school including STARS Club, Africa Outreach Club, United Way Club, Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society), and LIGHTS Club. Outside of school, I volunteer at Williamson Medical Center and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts every week. I also have a part time job at Kumon, which is a math and reading tutoring center for children, and I am on the Youth Board of the Indian Association of Nashville. Along with all that, I have been playing the violin for 10 years, am in an orchestra, and have been taking dance lessons for 10 years. This summer, I wanted to get a head start on others, so I am packed with activities. So far, I was accepted into Georgetown's Medical Institute for High School Students for 8 days. Also, I am in the process of getting a summer internship at Vanderbilt Hospital or a Vanderbilt affiliated clinic. Also, I will be volunteering in a multitude of children's summer camps as a counselor. If I keep all this up, do you all think that I will be able to get into an Ivy League school? </p>

<p>Also, next year, I want to jump ahead rank wise. I am already planning on taking AP Euro and AP Bio. I heard that AP Euro is very hard and time consuming, however, if you work hard you will do well. I have also heard that the AP Bio tests are hard, but there is not much homework and the teacher is very good. I am also debating whether or not to take AP Music Theory to get my school's required fine art credit out of the way. Also, I heard that AP Music Theory is very easy, and I have been playing violin for 10 years, so I feel prepared. However, I want more opinions, so do you all think I should take that as well as AP Bio and AP Euro. By the way, if I take AP Music Theory, then I won't have a study hall.</p>

<p>I know it is really early for me to be thinking about college, but I want to do well in high school in order to succeed in the future. In case you all couldn't tell, I would like to go to Medical School and become a practicing physician. </p>

<p>Plus, I know that it is hard to tell me how i successful I will be without SAT scores, but I took a practice PSAT in October without studying and received a 179. I plan on studying for the SAT this summer and taking it in September though. Please let me know my chances! And sorry for the extremely long post. :)</p>

<p>Dude I am no american so I dont know about life in america but let me say this:</p>

<p>1) How are you keeping with all these things that you wrote up???
2) With these things you do, and scoring high on your SAT’s I think that your chances are pretty high…</p>

<p>Not enough information. You seem to be on a good trajectory, though. Don’t take any SAT or ACT tests without preparation. Write a really compelling essay that reveals something substantial abot yourself that is not in your transcript. Make the case for the Admissions Committee wanting you in the class.</p>

<p>I’m a junior in high school and I’m sorry to break it to you, but your potential will not be looked at by colleges until the end of your sophomore year when school gets hard. I mainted a 3.98 until junior year and now will end 2nd tri with a 3.935-3.94 which is still very good with my honors/ap ranking. You’ll just have to wait to see, but a positive is that you ARE on the right track! If you want to get into ivy league, you will have to take almost every Honors/AP class offered. I have friends that want to go to Ivy League and they take Calc II & III and take every AP offered.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Okay thanks everyone! That helps a lot. I am very hard working, and I hope that I will do well later on in high school!</p>
