Hi, I'm a Hispanic male interested in applying to Oxford. My stats are pretty good.

SAT I
710-V 800-M
4.6 WGPA
No AP classes, but all honors.

SAT II
Math IIC-800 Writing-700 Latin-800

Community Service: I've started a program called "OUTREACH". A group of students, and I go to the youth "jail" to tutor the young convicts in math and English. Several hours of work with this program.

E.C :
I'm currently trying to obtain my pilot's license. I have several hours of flying time, and I'm very dedicated to it.

Awards:
Nothing special..NMF..etc..

i don't know about oxford... they're insanely selective.. have you gone for an interview? and no APs? ... does your school offer them?

well, i couldn't estimate your chances there but i know you probably have a decent shot at the elites in the U. S.

look...oxford really emphasises on academic strength and commitment to your chosen subject.
Are you really willing to specialise in your FIRST YEAR? This is the no-nonsense brit system.
interviews are really impt and there are written tests.
Anyway I'm getting my cambridge application results soon so wish me gd luck!

Enroll at a local community College you minority!

E-share, shall we observe your credentials?

if you can get an 800 on latin, you can do anything.

If you intend to present yourself intelligently, then review what you post on the forum. If you had written “E-share, shall we *peruse* your credentials?” I would not continue to think of you as a filthy uneducated minority. Peruse is “to pay careful attention to.” Observe is “to see or notice something;” rather generic. Use a stronger verb!

Peruse is a mask. It is a facade for illiterate people to hide behind as they desperately attempt to gain respect. Put your SAT vocab sheet away and either show us some stats or go back to your filthy practice of bashing minorities.
