Hi! Rising junior from a school in VA here. UVA is probably my dream school and I want to go into something science related, so here goes.

- Env Sci: 4
- Also taking Physics, Chem, Gov, Eng Lang, Latin, Stats (maybe Comp Sci)
SAT/PSAT
- already took SAT once, got 1500
- got 1470 on last year's PSAT
Extracurriculars
- Hospital volunteering: I think 200 hours as of now
- Research: Spent about 200 hours in a lab interning
- Shadowing: Shadowed a surgeon at a local hospital for 17 hours in total
- Model UN: Chairing my school's MUN, outstanding delegate at a local conference

In addition, what else do you guys recommend me doing to increase my chances?

    I think the only issue is check your high school navigator to see what past students had to get in. They cant take every 4.6 or 1500 from one school so also do some research on your high school to better understand your chances (speak to your career councilor should be a great help he/she must have the data). My sons’s Class some kids with high GPAs couldn’t get into UVA or Vtech this year (class size 700).
