I'm a pretty good writer and I have some good essay ideas so my essays will be good.

I have a part-time job working 20-25 hours a week at a local library.

I also served on the OKC youth council which is like a gov't/leadership program for 18 kids from the whole city

I was just elected to a youth community service board in OKC. I've volunteered as a political campaign intern and at Feed the Children. I am also set up to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity this summer.

I am paging at the state capitol for the President pro-tempore over spring break.

I will be in a mentorship program my senior year in politics or business

I will have college credit for macroeconomics and calculus from OCU

I can get excellent letters of rec.

My interests include history, politics, government, humanities, literature, music, international studies, economics, business, and volunteering.

Now, can I get in, and if not, what can I do to improve my chances.
Thanks
