white Jewish female, immigrant from Russia
SATs: V-750, M-690
SAT IIs: writing - 750, world history - 770, us history - 790
English Language : 5
US History: 5
Comparative Gov't: 5
my school doesn't rank. its one of the best public schools in new york and has an absurd amount of kids with high averages.
as for my GPA, i've raised my average from a 3.4 freshman year, so i guess i've got the rising trend thing going.
my senior year classes:
AP American Gov't
AP Micro/AP Macro
AP Calculus AB
AP Environmental Science
Great Books (it's basically like an AP English class)
Extracurriculars/Out of School Activities:
-I've been doing theatre since I was 9. I acted until 7th grade, then I switched to stage managing and publicity until high school. Sophomore and junior years I was assistant lighting director, then I became a producer. During junior year I produced three shows and I'm hoping to produce the musical in the fall. I also volunteer with the All-Stars project, which provides theatre opportunities for urban and minority youth.
- volunteering for the Kerry campaign
- babysitting/tutoring this boy for almost three years for about 25 hours a week. i've also volunteered at his school for the past year, chaperoning events, dances, baseball games, etc.
- i am currently taking a class in public policy at a CUNY and will be taking a modern american history class starting in late august through mid-december.
- i am working on an intel project and just finished my quality of life project.
i am applying to columbia early, and i was wondering how i could improve my chances, and whether i actually have a shot. also, my ECs are not a lot, but i don't have time to do other things, because i invest so much time into theatre and work.

Your chances are good, and investing time into an EC that means a lot to you is the preferable to having loads of EC's that you are involved with only peripherally. Scores are top notch, and your GPA should be fine considering your school. Living in NY is the only thing going against you.
You are what we call a "top of the pile" student. You are among the first choice applicants. Not all first choice applicants get in, but you couldnt do much better than you are now.
