<p>Hi, I am a high school junior very interested in Yale and planning to apply EA. I was just wondering if you could evaluate my chances and make suggestions on what I can do to improve my chances. Thanks.</p>

<p>I'll try to keep it brief...</p>

<p>STATS:

SAT: 800 M 770 V 750 W=2320...I'm retaking June for 2400. </p>

<p>SAT II's: 800 Math IIC, 800 Biology M, 800 Physics.</p>

<p>GPA: 4.7 W 3.97 UW</p>

<p>Rank: We don't really do ranking, but I'm probably top 1-2% of 550.</p>

<p>AP's: 5's on AP Calculus BC and AP Statistics. I am planning on taking AP Physics C: E/M, AP English Language and Composition, AP US History, and AP Biology.</p>

<p>I've taken a number of advanced math classes at Stanford (I've earned Stanford credit, but I don't plan to really transfer it to Yale...): Single variable calculus, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations. I've earned all A's in those classes as well. </p>

<p>EC's/Awards:

This is probably my weakest area. I've been a member of a hodgepodge assortment of clubs including community service clubs as well as weird clubs like the Food Club (Haha..we just ate food..). </p>

<p>I've been a member of my Math and Science Club for 3 years and I am now the Treasurer. Next year, I plan on becoming the President. I am really passionate about this club and I like to give math lectures. Haha the largest problem with the club is that it's too math-oriented. It's too hard to lecture on science since everyone has a different background in it..ahh oh well... :P</p>

<p>I have participated in a number of math and science competitions, but I haven't done anything extremely nortworthy: AMC 12, AIME, Semifinalist Physics Olympiad, ARML, CAML, National Science Bowl (2nd place at regionals), and other minor math/sci competitions. </p>

<p>Other Stuff/Research:

Last summer, I participated in the most awesome math program ever!!!--PROMYS! I immersed myself in the study of modern math topics while I explored the Mobius transformation in the complex plane and it's applications elsewhere (I looked at it's iterative properities as well). I've written a 10 page research paper on it as well.</p>

<p>This summer, I plan to conduct research at MIT's Francis Bitter Magnet Lab where I hope to investigate superconductors or other magnetism-related subjects. I will be attending the BU physics internship, not RSI (haha...). </p>

<p>I hope to conduct original research so that I may prepare a research paper to submit to Intel STS or Siemmens Westinghouse, but we'll see. </p>

<p>I have also written an odd (lol, that's the only way I can characterize it...) research paper pertaining to numerical methods in evaluating sums whose summand appears in the form </p>

<p>p(x)/a^x where p(x) is some polynomial, a is a real number, and x is being summed over the positive integers. </p>

<p>What's cool is that my work has applications in combinatorics (the so-called "simplex lock problem", which I have yet to expand upon.. but I'll hopefully be able to finish it before EA!</p>

<p>Next Year Classes:

AP Chemistry

AP English

AP Comp Sci

AP French

AP US Government

AP Econ</p>

<p>I'm also planning on taking Real Analysis and Complex Analysis at Stanford, as well as Intermediate Classical Mechanics (I am currently in love with the lagrangian formulation of c.m. and it's applications to quantum field theory...)</p>

<p>Conclusion: </p>

<p>So, as you can see, my interests are mainly math and science oriented. I plan to either major in pure math or physics, or something in the middle. </p>

<p>Oh, and this turned out to be anything but brief. Sorry...</p>

<p>If you could give me any advice on what I can improve on, I'd be very much obliged. Also, if I have left out anything, please ask. Thanks again!!!!! =)</p>
