i'm currently a junior (male, filipino) hailing from the long island, NY area
grades (note: my school doesnt use the gpa system, but i did some converting and i think it averages out to a 3.8 unweighted for three years):
freshman - 93.4
sophomore - 93.4
junior - 92.6 (for now)
honor roll for 3 years, in top 20% of class (out of about 400)
havent taken sat's yet, but planning somewhere around a 1350-1450
710 bio satII, 660 world history satII (taking writing and maybe math in june)
also, my school doesnt offer any ap's or honor courses, but we all take 4 years of math (im in advanced, taking calc), science, history, religion/philosophy, english, and in my case, latin, 2 years of studio art, and a year of health and music history (taking ap bio and chem tests though) and are exempt from NY state regents tests because of the rediculous difficulty of our own finals (the only school that i know of that's been granted that)
-Speech and Debate Club (3 years, with plenty of local and some college tournament awards, attending nats for CFL this year...go duo interp! for anyone who does s&d...dont have officers, but help a lot of the new guys with their acting)
-school paper, Tarmac, 3 years (writer, photography editor, and hopefully assoicate editor for production by the end of this year, up for some Newsday awards in photography)
-Emmaus (community service group) teaching young spanish kids english, twice a week for 2 hours for the past 3 years
-Latin Club (3 years), cum laude on the National ACLS Latin test freshman year
-first place biology project soph year, best in chem junior year
-school prayer service actor
-chess club, 3 years
-freshman "3C" orientation volunteer, 2 years
-library service 2 years (max amount for a junior)
-member of church youth group, 2 years
-about 100 hours of community service outside of school groups
-depending on my applications, may work at brookhaven national lab for the summer and cold spring harbor lab in a research fellowship
im really, REALLY committed to all of these EC's and i commute about 30 miles roundtrip to school everyday with perfect attendence
so...what are my chances at:
NYU (poss. early decision), Duke, U. of Rochester, BC, UVA, Cornell, Columbia, and maybe Stanford, although its kinda far
thanks in advance!

Hello fellow longuylander!
Question, how did a 93 average finally end up equalling a 3.8 GPA?
|By The_Nightboy (The_Nightboy) on Wednesday, April 21, 2004 - 08:57 pm: Edit|
or at least thats how the nyu admissions officer said to do it. and friends doesnt take regents either?
