Im currently a Junior In A competitive Atlanta HighSchool. Born in North Africa and moved here at the age of 4 (Considered African American).
Here is what my problem is! Current GPA 3.2..BUT...There are 3 semesters left. So I can potentially get up to a 3.45+ (Which I mostly am going to do!) Huge rising trend.
Want to know something weird? Past 3 years at this school , we have had full new administration,principle,counselors every year! This eventually led to schedule changes (Blocks to Periods and vice-versa). Im sure this issue can be brought up during the application process.
My SAT is going to be taken at the beginning of December...Hopefully Santa can bring me good SAT Scores! I will hopefully get a 2000-2100.
-Hopefully SAT Score
-Live in Atlanta?
-Will be able to visit the school once again
-Will be doing Early Action (If its even worth it)
-Great EC's (Hands on Atlanta,Work (YMCA),Fund Raisers around the area,Soccer Team,Chess team captain,French Club)
I have been keeping my eye on this school for a while!
Other Schools Im looking at: GaTech,BU,UofC
Probably looking into BioMedical Engineering.
