I'm new to this forum, so not sure how everything works just yet. I applied to the honors college at USC and as I research more and more, I am beginning to realize what a far stretch getting accepted is. My test scores are low, but I've listed my other credentials below:
Class Rank: 1
GPA: 4.0/4.0 4.96 Weighted
Class rigor: I have taken every AP class my school offers except for one (I didn't have room for it in my schedule)
EC's: Key Club Vice President, SGA Senior Representative, Secretary for Art Club(junior year), National Honor Society member, New Hope Clinic Volunteer, AP scholar with honors, Volunteer camp counselor over summer vacation, I have been on two missions trips, student community service leader for my youth group(freshman year), I have also worked in the nursery at church and I am a media volunteer. I have also won two national writing competitions (one in fiction and one in non fiction) and placed second in a national drama competition.
I've also realized that the McNair Scholarship is totally out of the picture because of my test scores. My SAT scores rank in the 98th percentile for my school,I live in a rural mountain county in NC, so I honestly did not know they were so bad until recently. Sure wish USC would take that into consideration LOL
