I'll try to go over most of the basics. I was wondering how much of a chance I have at Fordham, and if I even have a shot at NYU Gallatin. I'd love to go to Gallatin, but it is super selective I hear.
I am from a rural state. I have unweighed 4.0, Full IB, plus 2 IB math classes. Very involved with extracurriculars, track, Speech and Debate, MUN, BPA, Orchestra, etc. I am a State Champion in Speech and am an Academic All-American. I am in youth advocacy groups, National Honors Society, I founded an afterschool chamber music group. I have written a Diversity curriculum for schools and am working with school districts and teachers to get it into classrooms. Also have come in to classrooms to teach my lessons as a guest teacher. I have awards (varying significance) in all my activities. I haven't taken the ACT, hopefully I can but who knows with Covid. Also financial aid will not be an issue for me.
