Hello everyone, SUMMER is approaching, and I want to use this opportunity to add to my application for college.
I am an upcoming junior, but I have posted below everything I will have accomplished by junior year (and some senior year), and I am 100% certain of all of these (except for the AP test scores).
My intended major is Computer Science, and I feel like I want more of my extracurriculars to show my interest in that field. I would LOVE if someone could give me ideas for what I could do this summer like internships, coding camps, etc.
AP’s: Human Geography (4); World History (4); Statistics (5); Chemistry (5); Language (4); US History (4); Calc AB (5); CS Principles (5); CS A (5); Psychology (5); Literature (4); Government (5); Calc BC (5); Biology (5); Environmental Science (5)
Honors: Lit 9, Lit 10, Physics (no AP)
SAT II’s: Math (800); Physics (760); Chemistry (780)
GPA: W (4.52) UW (3.975)
(4 years) Tennis Varsity
(1 year) Tennis team captain
(4 years) Kiwanis Camp Casey
(3 years) NHS
(1 year) Internship at tech company
(2 years) Created open-source programming projects
Principal Honors Roll
National AP Scholar
For my sophomore summer, I want to do something productive that will also help my college app a lot, but it is too late to apply to internships and stuff, but I still want something that will show me off as a passionate and unique student.
What I AM doing:
- Attending Kiwanis Camp Casey as a counselor
Here are my current ideas for what I could do:
- Sign up for an online computer science course like those offered by John Hopkins University and Harvard’s CS50
- Apply to an internship for Boeing Airlines where I learn about business management and financial things with my own instructor (only internship available at this late time)
What else could I do? Any feedback about this would be grealy appreciated because I want to make this summer as productive as possible.
