Hi! So, here are my stats. I'm going to be a senior this year In-State.

GPA Unweighted: 3.8something* (asking my counselor to email me back with an accurate GPA)
I have taken a few Honors classes and have taken 3 AP classes (will be taking 2 in senior year to bring my total up to 5)

ACT Composite: 30
ACT English: 34
ACT Math: 26
ACT: Science: 26
ACT: Reading: 32

Extra-Curricular Activities:
Name It, Claim It, Stop It (an anti-bullying/harassment group), I'm Vice President
Key Club
Tutoring Program, one of the only tutors in my school (so technically one of the leaders)
Volunteer Program (215+ hours to my name and plan on getting more in my senior year)
FACT (anti-tobacco group)
FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America)
Varsity Basketball Team Member

Awards and Honors:
2 Varsity Letters
National Honor Society
Accepted into a leadership youth group as a sophomore that only accepted 24 kids out of all the sophomores in the area (which holds about 5 different high schools)
From there, I was the one picked from this prestigious group to attend the Wisconsin Leadership Seminar (WILS), a summer leadership conference at UW-Whitewater. Only 200 sophomores from the entire state were invited and I was one of them.

Volunteering and Jobs:
Again, 215+ hours currently and planning on more.
I recorded game scores and player stats for the girl's basketball travelling team from when they were fifth graders to eighth graders. Every game, every tournament. In addition, I went to their practices to help them out.
I've tutored all of my years of high school.
I work at the "Neighborhood Table," an organization that feeds poorer people that don't have access to a meal that night.
I volunteer in "Name It, Claim It, Stop It" by visiting elementary, middle, and junior high schools in the area and teaching them about the effects of bullying.
I babysit and mow lawns.

Interest in School:
UW-Madison is my #1 choice and I'll be devastated if I don't get in. It's been my goal for years now to get accepted, so I'm definitely not applying as some "whatever safety school" deal.

Sorry that this is a lot. I overanalyze and worry a lot, so I like giving as much information as possible in order to get the most reliable results. Thank you and have a great summer everyone! :) Please Reply!!!

*I must add that I received a concussion my sophomore year due to basketball. This severe head injury took a toll on my academics sophomore year, causing them to drop somewhat. I plan on adding that to my application this year in order to show that without this screwup, my GPA is higher than approximately a 3.8something. :)
