Hi, I'm currently entering my Junior year and I was wondering what I can improve to make the Ivys in my reach. I'm a Asian Male. (These are all what they would be when I'm in 12th grade)
Practice SAT score: 1540 consistent
Practice PSAT score: 232+ consistent
Practice ACT score: 32-34 consistent
GPA/Rank: 4.19 / (9/~800)
SAT II – Math IIC – 800
Awards/Achievements: AMC-12 (106.5), AIME Qualifier (3), Top 200 mathematicians in the state, 2x top marimba player for length of study in the state, Youth symphony’s scholarship winner
Clubs: Founder of math club (3 years), NHS (2), Key Club (3), Students Against Drunk Driving (3), Spanish Club (3), Youth Symphony (4), Student Council Member (3), Model UN (2)
Summer Programs: 9th grade - HCSSIM (6 week competitive math program), 10th grade - State Science program (4 weeks)
Sports: JV Swim (3), JV Tennis (4)
I'm hoping to major in business, engineering, or computer science.
Let me know please!

How do you know you will get high scores on the REAL tests and 106.5 on AMC 12(i thought it is offered to juniors and seniors)?

If he was in "junior" or "senior" level math (pre-calculus, calculus) prior to junior year, he can take the AMC 12. As a matter of fact, I don't believe it's possible for, say, a soph in BC calculus to take the AMC 10.

No no... anyone is eligible to take the AMC-12. So I really did get 106.5

i know that a soph in any level math course can take AMC 10. Any any grade can take AMC 12.

The AMC 12 requires no math beyond Precalculus. It is all what they call, "creative problem solving." Anyone can take the AMC 12, though it is harder. People who take the AMC 10 can qualify for the AIME as well, though their scores will have to be much higher since the test is considerably easier.
Just curious: how do they evaluate you as the top marimba player in the state for your length of study? how long have you studied? what would you be among ALL marimba players in your state?

There is a statewide competition called AGM (American Guild of Music). I've been playing marimba for 3 years, but I've been playing percussion instruments for nearly 7. I'd probably be in the top few hundred in my state as the marimba is a pretty rare instrument.

What state do you live in? Top few hundred isn't all that impressive in some states...
