I really love everything I've seen and heard about Wesleyan, but i'm slightly unsure about getting in.
white female,rising senior, michigan, Seaholm High School
GPA: a little over 4.0 Weighted, 3.75 unweighted
SAT: 1970 ( 730 reading, 630 math, 610 writing), took it again in June, 2030 superscored
Unfortunately no APs until next year, AP calc and AP environmental science. 3 years of Chinese. Mostly just honors classes right now including a really great program called Flex which is basically a block of social studies and english done in a very different way. Much less "teaching for the test," and lots of open dialogue and non-textbook reading. Kinda reminds me of what i think Wesleyan would be like.
ECs: Chamber Orchestra, Oakland Youth Orchestra, Tennis, Head of Community service and outreach for Green Club (environmental awareness club), Birmingham Voice (an organization that fights racism within the Birmingham community), International Club, Welcome Wagon.
