I'm a rising senior, and I'd like to know if I have the slightest chance of getting into Wesleyan. If I have a shot, I may apply ED.
I'm planning on studying journalism, possibly with a double major or minor in political science
I'm a white female from Arkansas, and I go to a small charter school that has 6-12 grades; it's a harmony academy, if you're familiar with those. I'll be part of the school's fourth graduating class.
GPA: UW 3.8 W 4.25
AP English Lit
AP European History
AP Spanish Language
AP Physics C: Mechanics
AP US Gov't and Politics
By the end of senior year, I'll have taken 10 AP courses.
SAT: 2010, but I probably won't submit it because my SAT II scores were low
-Mayor's Youth Council (9-10)
-Yearbook (article writing, editing) (11)
-Founded a mentoring program that matches a group of 6th grade girls with one or two high school girls, in order to ease the transition from elementary to middle school (11) I was very passionate about this, and put a lot of work into it; I think it may be the topic of one of my essays
-Unpaid internship with local Democratic Party from late September to Election Day; gained a lot of campaigning experience and had a leadership position on Election Day (11)
-National Honor Society (11-12)
-Science Quiz Bowl (12)
Local library and science museum: 15 hrs
If I can consider my internship as volunteering (I did a lot of the same work as volunteers): 100 hrs
Mentoring: 50 hrs, with more next year
And I'll most likely get a lot of hours with NHS next year
Principal's honor roll almost every semester
Since my school is so small, I've had a few teachers for 2+ years and have a pretty good relationship with all of them. My English teacher for the last 4 years was promoted to assistant principal for next year, so I can get a good recommendation from her as well.
I'm a fairly good writer, and I've already drafted one personal essay.
