I'm going to aplly ED, I'm 100% sure Dartmouth is what I'm looking for. The problem ismy chances are really low, I think....so, what can I improve to get in?</p>
<p>I'm a white female from Europe.
SAT, SATII: I haven't taken any yet, but I think even if my scores were quite weak for Dartmouth, they would consider that I'm not from US and I'm not used to this form of testing....Am I right?
GPA: weighted: n/a, unweighted: 4,7(here 5 is like british A, 4 like british B etc. I can't compare it to US grade system 'cause I don't know it at all lol). Next year I'm gonna have it about 4,9(this year is the hardest)
class rank: we're not ranked, but I guess it's about best 3%, like...best 5 out of 230
possibilities to get accepted in my own country: everyone I know tells me I'll get accepted wherever I want here and for whatever course I want....ECs and awards aren't involved at all in this system.
Awards: 1st prize at school contests: "a story in english" and "english language and culture" contest, finalist of province contest of my national language, and a distinction in national english language contest; I'm peparing to perform at national Latin olympics national English olympics next year or in 2 years, we'll see....
Courses taken: I'm having 16 courses: 4 at HL for 3 years and SL for the first year(history, national language, english, civic/social studies) and 12 at SL(maths, latin and religion studies for 4 years, biology, chemistry, physics, geography, PE for 3 years, IT, culture studies for 2 years, economy, civili defence, philosophy for a year)
