I suppose I am. And uh, I’ve typed this on a post on my styling blog here (note, my school list has changed a bit), but I’ll run over the big things.
I have a 4.0 in high school and in college currently. I work two jobs; I head many large activities on campus and within my program (student representative of my campus, editor-in-chief of newspaper, yearbook editor, etc). I did sports in high school (regions + state), I do internships (I will have a fashion one next semester + I do stuff over summer), I was on academic teams (Mock Trial, National Science Bowl, National AU, etc), and I’m nominated to go to camps to represent my school/community. And scores….like ACT? I have a 35 superscore; 34 English, 34 Math, 36 Reading, and 34 Science. But my highest in one setting is 33 English, 34 Math, 36 Reading, 28 Science. If you ever need study tips or anything, feel free to ask! I hope this helps, and I hope you get into your colleges next year! :)
I’m currently in a college program for high school students that requires me to live about four hours away from my house. I’m graduating this year (and high school as well). I’m not going to say the name because…it’s a small college.
I am applying to: United States Military Academy - West Point (1st choice), John Hopkins, Duke, Yale, WashU, Vanderbilt, Emory, Washington and Lee, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Case Western, Georgia Tech (backup), and UDub (U of Washington - Seattle).
Finding what college you want to go to is a hard process. I would definitely recommend visiting them and applying to the ones you feel most at home in. My college check list is:
And West Point fits the bill. I was there for a camp, and I can honestly say I have never felt more alive and in love with anything or anyone than I did with that school. Just figure out what you’re interested in, and find a college that fits what you want! Don’t worry about money or anything. Find a place where you know you want to be at for four years!
