Ethnicity: White
Gender: Male
Income Bracket: Middle to High Income
State: North Carolina
High School: Fairly large public school (around 1800 students)

Intended Major: Writing/Journalism, possibly film
UW GPA: 4.00
W GPA: 4.522
Class Rank: 8 out of 397
ACT: 33 C (35 SS)
SAT Subject Tests: Taking Math 2, Literature, and Spanish in October, hoping to get above a 700 on one of two. If not, I probably won't submit.
Course Rigor: AP Psych 4, AP Spanish Lang 4, AP Computer Science 5, AP English Lang 5, AP Environmental Science 4, APUSH 3 (not submitting). Senior year I will take 5 APs (AP Stats, AP Human Geo, AP Bio, AP Micro/Macro, AP English Lit). Pretty rigorous schedule.

Extra Curriculars (probably my weakest section because of lack of leadership positions):

Youth and Government (attended state conference every year with legislative branch, campaign coordinator for student governor) (10-12)
Classically trained in piano for the last twelve years
Performed piano in school concerts, played background piano at events
Tri-M National Music Honor Society (Officer)
JV Soccer (9th and 10th)
Volunteer with coaching disabled children in soccer (10-12)
Duke summer writing program (11)
UCLA summer screenwriting program (12)
Key Club
Latin Club (treasurer) (11-12)
NHS (12th, Vice President)

Essays: Very strong and unique common app essay (writing is my strong suit).

Letters of Recommendation: One letter from AP English Lang teacher (probably an 8 out of 10) and another from my school piano teacher (10-12th grade, we are very close so I believe that it will be a 9 out of 10). My third recommender is my AP Spanish teacher (probably a 8-9 out of 10).
