I'm a white, male, high school senior in the mountains of North Carolina. I'll be the first generation to attend a four year school as well. My high school is quite competitive and is often recognized as such. I have a 4.6 gpa weighted and a 3.9 UW, and I'm in the top 5% of my class. I was a Football player my first 2 years so I have 4 credits of weight training (ugh). I've taken many honors classes and have made an A in all but 3 (B's). I have taken 2 AP's so far, (US Gov- 5 on the AP, and World History- 3 on AP). I'm taking 4 this year. My schedule includes Discrete math H, AP Psych, Physics H, AP Human Geo first semester. My second semester is AP Statistics, AP human Geo/ AP Psych (same period), Eng 4 H, and AP Physics. I will get an A in all of them (I just know...).
Unfortunately, my SAT is only an 1800 right now. I took it at the end of my Sophomore year. I'm taking a 6 week class right now to improve it, and my practice test have been ranging from 1380-1500... but you never know what can happen.
I've done aprox 50 hrs of community service throughout high school... my community service is a bit lacking, I know, but I've done a lot in other areas:
DECA VP- Freshman and Sophomore year
DECA Fasion Show Coordinator- Sophomore Year
DECA District Winner- Freshman through Senior
JV football during freshman and sophomore year- Captian during Sophomore year, got to play varsity that year as well.
JV Track -Freshman
Schools traveling summer Basketball team- Sophomore summer.
Completed a 50 hr internship for my counties District Attorney (UNC Alumni)
Varsity Soccer Junior and Senior- Captain during senior year
Founder of my schools Politically Active Youth association.
I also had a job during my freshman and sophomore summer. And my Junior year.
I apologize for the wordiness, and I know this reads less than fluently. I'm just very nervous about my chances. If you have any other school recommendations, I'd be happy to hear them
