You betta Belize it!

<p>^Haha I bought that shirt in Belize^</p>

<p>I'm currently a junior from a competitive public in the northeast.</p>

GPA: 3.9
WGPA: 4.6
SAT I: 2190 (800 M), retaking for 2250+
SAT II: Bio - 800, Math 2 - 800, taking Chem this spring
AP: Comp Sci A - 5, Bio - 5 (self studied), Enviro - 4 (self studied)
Courseload: most rigorous possible in all areas; skipped one year of math, science, and comp sci; finishing all bio and chem courses this year, so I'll either do independent study or take bio and chem courses at Princeton next year, or a combination of both</p>

<p>EC's/leadership as of junior year:
Environmental Club - President, founder
Debate League - President, Vice President, Varsity team
Tutoring Society - VP, tutor
Amnesty International - Publicity Officer
Model United Nations</p>

A plaque for NJ Science League, regional finalist for an oratorical contest, AP Scholar, Varsity debate team, 12th place in National French Examination, some other debate/MUN stuff, nominated by my school for NJ Governor's School on the Environment (1 male nominee per school) as well as NJ Scholars Program (three nominees per school). This year I'm doing a lot more stuff - like USABO (prepping like mad), USNCO, USACO, AMC 12, NJ Envirothon, National Ocean Sciences Bowl, my local ISEF-qualifying science fair, more debate competitions, and hopefully Columbia Science Honors Program for the fall/winter of senior year.</p>

<p>I'm expecting an amazing rec from my guidance counselor and good to excellent teacher recs.</p>

<p>My two main passions are environmental science and public issues, and I want to pursue environmental studies in college.</p>

<p>I'm prolly going to apply to:</p>

Columbia (College)
Cornell (CALS or Human Ecology)
Georgetown (College)
George Washington (CAS)
Northeastern (CAS)
NYU (Gallatin)

<p>So... what do you guys think? Could you rate my chances on a scale of 1-10 if possible? Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Brown- slight reach
Columbia (College)- reach
Cornell (CALS or Human Ecology)- match/slight reach
Georgetown (College)- slight reach
George Washington (CAS) safe match
MIT- reach
Northeastern (CAS)- safe match
NYU (Gallatin)- match
Princeton- reach
YALE (SCEA)- reach</p>

<p>Thanks, ckmets13. Anyone else?</p>

<p>Bump. Come on, people!</p>

<p>Also, could you rate my chances by admit/wait list/reject? Reach/match/safety is pretty easy to figure out. :P</p>

<p>I see you're a math/science person, being the leader of science olympiad helps TONS if you're school has it</p>

<p>Nah, I'm not involved in SciOly.</p>

<p>Ironically, I'd convinced myself my freshman year that I wouldn't be an overly focused math/sci typical Asian kinda kid, so I joined Amnesty instead of Math Team (both on Tuesdays) and debate instead of Science Club (both on Thursdays). I don't really mind, though. I think I'd go crazy if I was that hardcore.</p>

<p>I think you need more than just academics... How are your essays?<br>
Brown - slight reach
Columbia - reach
Cornell - match/slight reach
Georgetown - match/slight reach
GW - safety
MIT - reach
NE - safety
NYU - match
Princeton - reach
Yale - reach</p>

<p>Well, I put an insane amount of time into my activities, though I undertand that I didn't really convey that in my post.</p>

<p>Anyway, thanks for your post, kiteboard4life!</p>

<p>no prob, I think that if you want to really emphasize the clubs you are doinng, go for a more well-lopsided approach, instead of a well-rounded. If you really show passion to the schools, they will see it.</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice, kiteboard4life. Anyone else?</p>

<p>Me = Princeton</p>

<p>YOU == ALL

<p>Haha what?</p>

<p>yeah seriously...</p>
