I want to go to the University of Southern California.
I am thinking about applying for the film program. If not, I will apply for psychology.
I currently am a junior at a public high school in Missouri.
GPAs at my school are not weighted, and I currently have a 4.0, so I am top of my class.

I'm slacking a little bit in math and science, because I hate those subjects, and do not want to be miserable.

I currently have a 28 on the ACT, but I am pretty confident that I can get a 31 by the time I am finished with my tutor. I am the captain of a synchronized ice skating team, and most of my time is taken by national competitions. I am a part of the national honor society. I have been in multiple school plays, and will be part of my school's news team next year. I am also planning on starting volunteer work soon, I just applied to help with the suicide hotline.

I not only need to be accepted to USC, I also need merit-based scholarships. My family will not qualify for any need-based, but we definitely cannot afford 60,000 a year.

Any chance??
