Due to family medical reasons I was forced to take 2 years off from school. Now that my family and I are financially sound and healthy I want to pursue my education. I will of course apply to several state schools and private schools( Old Dominion University, James Madison Univ, and longwood)
I do however have the so called "longshot" in mind. Im curious to see what you think my "longshot " chances may be at:
Attended An Arts Magnet School (majoring in classical vocal performance)
Roles in Ballad of Baby Doe, The Magic Flute, Hansel and Gretel, Amahl and the Night Visitors (and many other performances and features)
Church youth group president
Food Bank Volunteer
Nursing home recital volunteer
Youth Pride member
Section leader at church
All district and state vocal competition winner
National Honor Society
Just curious, I plan to apply into the school of education or music...with the eventual plan of going into biomed.
My plan for this longshot is to gain admission with my voice and then transfer schools...do you think this is a good idea?

I don't think that Vanderbilt is such a long shot for you. Your SAT is right on par. What kind of classes did you take in high school? Regular, Honors, AP?
With applying to more than one school, I know that you can apply at the same time to several of the schools (1st choice, 2nd choice, etc.). That sounds like the best option for you.

I have all honors courses in high school. But, unfortunately (due to my magnet school) I could not take any AP classes due to block scheduling.

I think your chances are not bad at all, I know at least 2 people in my school with about the same gpa, but with sat scores of 1350 that got in. They took relatively hard course loads, and they didn't have too many extra curriculars. I think you have a good shot
