Just visited yesterday and loved it! I'm a junior from a public high school in Arkansas where only one AP is offered Sophomore year. I intended to major in Biology or Psychology with a minor in music. I want to go Pre-Med.

-White female

-GPA: 3.9 (unweighted) and 4.5 (weighted)

-AP Classes I'll have taken by graduation:
AP US History
AP World History
AP Psychology
AP Liturature and Composition
AP Language and Composition
AP Biology
AP Statistics

-3 Years of Spanish

-Ranking: My school ranks you as 1 out of 600 if your weighted GPA is above 4.0. So I'll be listed as 1 out of 600 even though I'm not actually validectorian. But I'm definitely top 5% of my class.

-4 year school Drill (dance) Team member
-4 year choir member (All region all four years, all state one)
-Band in freshman year (Oboe-first chair all region)
-2 year "Lighthouse" member (Selective acapella group at school)

-ACT: only a 29 right now. However I'm taking it again in April, and I've been studying my butt off for it haha. After a few more times taking it, I plan to get a 33.
I got a 9 on the writing, which I've been told is good.

National Junior Honor Society(F year)
National Honor Society(S,J,S Years)
National Spanish Honor Society(Senior year)
Junior Class Council Member
Senior Class Council Member
Choir Council Board Member (J & S years)
Very involved with church youth group.

-Around 90 volunteer hours.

-Other things:
Attended MASH (A summer medical program at the University of Arkansas Medical School)
Arkansas Girl's Stater

Nothing spectacular haha.
I plan on auditioning for the choral program.

My recs will come from my junior year AP Biology teacher and I'm not sure about which teacher will do my second rec. My school is large so my rec from my councilor won't be too personal. My essays should be very strong.
Thank you so much!! :)
