What can I do to improve my chances?

<p>Hey Everyone!</p>

<p>So, I'm going into my junior year in High School, and I'm very interested in MIT for when I start looking at colleges (I'm from Massachusetts, I like the Math and Sciences). </p>

<p>I currently have a 3.9 weighted GPA, but I plan on that going up A LOT in my upcoming junior year. </p>

<p>Here's what I did my sophomore year of note:</p>

<p>5 on my AP United States History Exam
790 on my United States History SAT Subject Test.</p>

<ul>
<li>I'm a three sport varsity Cross Country and Track athlete (2nd best on my team, very good on the state level)</li>
<li>I'm running for class president next year</li>
<li>I'm going to help campaign for my Congressman in November</li>
<li>I'm involved in a student run volunteer project at the local hospital</li>
</ul>

<p>Here's my schedule for my upcoming junior year:</p>

<p>AP Biology
AP Chemistry
Honors English
Honors Precalculus
AP Statistics
AP World History
AP Microeconomics/Macroeconomics (self-study)
(I'm skipping a year of french this year because i already speak it fluently and I want to make room for Chemistry, and taking up AP french next year).</p>

<p>Now, I know I don't have any SAT scores yet (because I haven't taken it yet), but I assume I'll do very well. Is there anything I can start doing now to preparing for the SAT (maybe focusing in the vocabulary section)?</p>

<p>I figured that you guys will know the most about this, so I decided to ask you. What else can I do to improve my chances at getting into one of the greatest colleges in the world--MIT?!</p>

<p>Direct Hits is a really good vocab referance...both volumes. Also, have you tried to do any math competitions? (MIT likes math...a lot...)</p>
