Huntsman Program at UPenn!!
Hey, everyone! It's my dream to go to the Huntsman Program at UPenn and I was just wondering how likely I am to be accepted. The idea of being in a program specifically designed for international studies with a strong business focus -- at UPenn -- is amazing for me. I want to study Japanese, specifically. But do I have any chance at even getting in?
Unweighted GPA: 3.9
Weighted GPA: 4.9
Total AP's: 13 (4 during senior year)
Studied abroad in Japan for a year.
1520 SAT, 34-35 ACT
Expect 750-800 SAT Japanese w/ Listening
Recs: Doing a Business and Sales Internship 12hrs/week at international PR firm. And exchange, but that's different. Otherwise 100 hrs random community service.
Freshman and Sophomore: Went to a high-level school, took 6 AP's total through freshman and sophomore year. Mostly 5's, two 4's on the exam. I did get a B in AP Physics and a C in the first semester of freshman Pre-calc (got an A second sem) -- could that hurt my chances? Will colleges be more forgiving of blemishes on freshman grades?
Junior Year: Study Abroad in Japan for 11 months through Rotary. Awesome experience; going to write my personal essay on this. I'm advanced-intermediate (JLPT 3) in Japanese thanks to this program. I also took three AP classes online (and got all 5's and A's): AP Macro, English Lit, and Calc BC.
Senior Year, probably all A's:
AP US History
AP Art History
AP Computer Science A
Dual-Enroll Calc 3 w/ Analytic Geo (Sem 1)
Dual-Enroll World Lit (Sem 1)
Dual-Enroll Introduction to Business (Sem 2)
Dual-Enroll British Lit (Sem 2)
SAT is 1520, haven't taken ACT yet but expect 34-35. Expect an SAT II in Japanese w/ Listening around 750+, maybe 780-800.
