I'm debating between going EA to Georgetown or ED to UVA, so I'm posting on both boards. Both are my top choices and they're both reaches, grr!Please tell me what you think my chances are! How much will ED help me at UVA?
Very competitive prep school in NC (ranked like 10th in the country by Wall Street Journal...)
3.75 UW (school does not rank)
Right now: 730 V, 650 M, 680 W
National Merit Commended Scholar
750 SAT II US History
740 SAT II Lit
590 SAT II Latin (ugh I know)
5 in AP US
4 in AP Latin
Very challenging coarseload..will graduate with 6 APs.
ECs: intern with John Kerry campaign, first intern for NC Attorney General, many hours of political volunteering, competitive horseback riding since I was 7, President of Red Cross Club, and Editor on school paper for 3 years
Very good recs and essays...
One advantage at UVA: my family's good friend is the Louis and Clark professor (a very prestigious position there) and he is writing me a letter, dunno how much this will help
