    Tutoring is considered volunteer work. Your stats look good! But, be aware- Wash U will only honor 15 credits towards all of those AP classes, while public colleges might honor all of them.

    Wow. 1000 kids in your class. Do you go to Stevenson or Nequa or something? Anyway, you have great ECs and your classes are really good. Just your ACT needs to go up for any top tier school. Also, for SAT IIs, take what you are best at and try to get above 700. It really stands out. Like, take something you are better at than critical reading, unless that is your strong point. Good luck.
