hi,
my name is jowon from korea, and i've been in U.S for about 2years. And i need your advice as to
my chance for Georgetown.

GPA 3.65
class rank top 30%
Extracurricular Model U.N. (Vice president)

etc.

so far, i've taken
AP Gov't, AP Economics and AP Psychiology
and i will be taking IB courses next two years.
I got several Cs so far and one D which i'm trying to take it again during summer.

i'm weak in math/science. but i'm pretty strong
in social science. (taking 12th classes)

You have some great Ec's, (esp the Georgetown and Oxbridge programs) but your scores seem to hamper your chances. You GPA and class rank aren't that great, and the C's and D's will most definetly kill your chances. I think you need to drastically improve your GPA and/or SAT's to really have a decent shot at Georgetown.

Definetly apply though.
