However, unlike most of my peers I am NOT by any means a "math/science" person, though I do love math, I love english/humanities wayyyy more!
Here's a break down of my stats as of right now:
Rank: top 2-3% out 550 people (estimated, could be a little higher) --> though this year, my classes along with ECs have been extremely difficult. So im hoping I can maintain that level even after final exams, which are coming up so soon!
GPA: 4.7 (out of 4 due to weighting)
Class load: hardest possible no doubt!
SAT: Eh. not so hot yet, barely making 2100 on practice exams. However, I have had much better luck with the ACTs - I am constantly scoring in lower 30's on that from practice exams. Planning on taking it in Feb.
EIC of School Paper - first junior to become one in a looong time, i am absolutely certain that the newspaper advisor will write me a first class rec!
Write for other community papers as well, including our cultural one.
Many essay competition awards; won 1st place in state for a newspaper article I wrote. That same article won 4th place nationally at another competiton (which i will not list here for security reasons as you can easily look me up)
Internship at congressman office summer before junior year
Teen Rep on local Youth Commisson - began this system of teen reps to help form better student-community alliances
With members of youth commission helped form young democracts society to promote Obama and help students who can't vote (like me) to still get involved in the poltical scene - created flyers, sent letters of concerns/request to the congressman about issues that bothered us, etc. etc.
500+ volunteer service hours through hospital volunteering (the usual lol), tutoring, after school enrichment program helping for younger children, etc. etc.
