University of Pittsburgh is one of my absolute top choice of schools ... Please chance me!!
Junior - PA resident
Taken all College Prep and Honors classes
Multiple business classes each year
Will be taking an AP class next year (senior year)
For my Freshman and Sophomore year my GPA is 3.28 and the weighted is 83.4
However, this year (junior) years has been very strong year with have a 90-92 GPA all year long. My school does not have a class rank because it works on a decile system. I am in the 4th out of 10 in my class.
I should have great teacher recommendations and a really well developed essay.
I am also planning on having an interview with an admissions counselor and visit Campus a lot to show my sincere interest in the school
Lots of good EC's:
Church's youth group (lots of leadership)
Will be Student Council President for next year
Track and Field
Volunteer for a school with kids who have learning disabilities
Volunteer for a group to help raise money for our school
Honor Roll (every year)
Internship this summer
Lots of community service credits on my transcript
However, my SAT Scores are very low.
Reading - 410
Math - 480
Writing - 470 (10 on the essay)
I am taking the ACT in June and hope to do better as well as taking an SAT Prep Course this summer to help get the scores up.
