I know everything has to be top-notch for Northwestern.
These are my stats:
3.9 GPA
Many AP/Honors classes
31 (on my first try) for ACT. Took a course and now I'm way better at timing myself, so I believe I'll get it much, much, MUCH higher. (Science killed me. I ran out of time sooo quickly. I got a 29. 35 in English.
Due to take SAT subject tests and do very well.
I've been in a class called Communications (broadcast journalism) for the past three years, and I'm now the student-producer and lead anchor for our school news show.
Captain of Speech Team
Various Student Council Positions
Volunteer at hospital & animal shelter
Black belt in martial arts, frequently teach younger children
Job shadow at local radio stations and local newspapers.

With strong essays, do you think I stand a chance? I'm apply Early Decision; do you have any suggestions for me?

Thank you so much! Have a great day!
