As of right now, UNC Chapel Hill is my goal for undergraduate education. I am a senior in high school with an SAT score of 1450 (690 math, 760 reading), a 31 ACT composite, an AP English Lang. Score of 5, an APUSH score of 5, and an AP Government and Politics score of 3. I am currently taking AP Calculus and AP Literature, and next semester I will be taking AP Environmental Science. I have had straight As for my entire high school career, and my weighted GPA is a 4.5 (approximately).
My grades are good, but I'm worried about my extracurriculars. I was in Beta Club Sophomore year, and did about ten hours of service. I did ten hours in Leo Club the following year, and although I was invited to NHS, I did not finish my application because I felt like I didn't meet the requirements. I did join NHS this year, and between these three clubs I have done 50 or so hours of service. I also volunteer for 3 hours every Sunday morning at a drug rehabilitation center. I have been in Model UN and We The People for the last two years, and I competed at WorldQuest this year, although we came 9th or so out of 17
. I also worked at a pizza restaurant for 5 months before I put in my two weeks so I could focus on grades.
Honestly, my essays were pretty good. Writing and communication is a strong suit of mine. But the reason I am worried is that most of the stuff I've done was in the last two years. It may seem as though I've only popped up on the map as of my Sophomore or Junior year. Please note that I have already submitted my Early Action application to UNC Chapel Hill.
So... What are my chances of getting in? I would be happy to provide additional information if necessary, but based on experiences or personal opinions, do I have a shot. I've put a lot of eggs in this basket, and I'm a little stressed out right now(*chuckles nervously*). It may have something to do with the fact that the neighbors dog has been yapping nonstop for the last hour... I digress.
