I'm in the throes of a major panic attack at the moment. I was denied from UVa and deferred from Yale, and now I am very worried I won't get into ANY school that I've applied to, even though my counsellor at school assured me I would.
GPA: 4.5 out of 4 (my school doesn't do class rank but I'd guess I'm the top five, definitely top 10)
My school doesn't offer many AP options compared to public schools in the area, although it's a very rigorous school. I've taken AP European History, AP US History, and AP Calculus AB, and gotten 5's on the exams for each. This year I'm taking AP Biology, as well as 4 honors classes. The lowest grade I've ever gotten in a class was a 93 in honors Algebra 2/Trig freshman year, and in each subsequent year my lowest grades were 96. Most of my grades are 99-100.
EC: Volleyball, editor for school newspaper, leader of school creative writing club and literary magazine, leader of school Spanish club, member of NHS, member of National Spanish Honors Society, peer tutor in biology, AP Calc, and Spanish, member of Shakespeare drama troupe at school, member of political club.
I'm a state scholar for my state, an AP scholar, and a commended NMSQT scholar.
Additionally, I've won 4 national gold medals in the Scholastic Art and Writing contest for creative writing, 8 regional gold awards, 12 regional silver awards, 13 regional honorable mentions from 2015-2018. I've placed third and received an honorable mention for the past two years in my state's poetry contest. I was also one of 85 commended poets internationally in the Foyle Young Poets Contest UK. I write for Scholastic's Teen Voices blog as well.
The schools I've applied to (besides Yale and UVa) are:
Johns Hopkins University
WashU St. Louis (my top, I also applied for the Nemerov writer scholarship)
William and Mary (I also applied to the JDP with St. Andrews)
I'm also thinking of applying to more places, since I'm so paranoid now, so I'd apply to Indiana University, Clemson University, St. Louis University, and Loyola University Chicago. I don't particularly want to go to any of these, but I'll take what I can get.
So my question after all that is, do you think I have a good shot at getting into at least ONE of those schools I listed? What are my chances for all of them?
