Hi I'm new so I'm not sure if this is in the correct forum but I'm looking for some advice. I'm currently a senior in high school about to apply to colleges and I'm worried about my chances. My top choices for colleges are UPenn, Brown, and Berkeley, with my second ideal choices being Boston University or USC. Currently I have a 3.95 unweighted GPA, 4.2 weighted, a 1330 SAT with a 7/6/7 essay, all AP, advanced, and college classes, and a 4 on the APUSH test and a 5 on the AP Lang & comp test. I'm also in National Honors Society, the president of our school's student council, the president of my International Thespian Society Troupe, a member of the Société Honoraire de Français, and an active member in my school's theatre and music programs. I have sufficient volunteer hours but nothing too substantial. Do my extracurriculars make up for my low SAT score enough to make it possible for me to get accepted into an Ivy League or should I aim lower? Any advice would be super helpful!10 replies
