I'm a junior and looking at Reed, Swarthmore, Hampshire, Amherst, New College of Florida, Vassar, and Columbia (a stretch, maybe...). Possibly looking at a journalism major..

Puerto Rican female
1430 SAT - 730 Verbal, 700 math, but I'm retaking it
219 PSAT - 80 Verbal, 71 Math, 68 Writing
Hopefully nat'l merit...if the score cutoff is the same as last year, then I will be...
4.09 weighted GPA - not all my honors credit was counted it, because I switched high schools from Puerto Rico to Ohio
37/491 - top 10%. again because of the school-switching, or maybe because I'm insufferably lazy...

courses taking right now:
AP BC Calc junior year - B first trimester
AP American History - A so far
Honors English, math, science, history, Science throughout high school

Next year, planning on taking:
Postsecondary math/journalism
AP British Literature
AP Government
AP Spanish
AP Bio

taking a spanish course over the summer at Beloit or Georgetown

Amnesty Int'l founder/president - 3 years
Literary magazine editor and staff - 3 years
Federal Reserve Challenge - 2 years
