I'm a HS sophomore. I wish to attend maybe Georgetown, Harvard, Yale, or Stanford. I definitely want to major in political science.
With College admission becoming more competivtive.How does my HS schedule look for this year and the next two.
Freshman Yr. (all were taking on college prep level)
World History I
Computer Apps/Health (they were semester courses
Honors English II
Honors Theology II
Honors Latin I
Biology(regular college prep)
Geometry(regular college prep)
Honors French III
Honors English III
Honors Theology III
Honors Latin II
Algebra II(regular college prep)
AP American History
Honors French IV
Honors Latin III
Honors Theology III
My frosh yr. average was a 93.8. I plan on getting involoved with ECs and taking on leadership postition in thoseand Student Gov't.
I'm going to surpass the community service req.
i going to a pretty competive hs. We have send many students 2 HYPS and many LACs. I got a 111 on PSAT Fresh yr. With this New SAT i probably get maybe between a 200-240. I ranked 36 out of like mid 200ish. i want to take Pre-Cal junior yr. but can't due to math-sci agreement. So i can't take Pre-Cal w/chemsitry. It has 2 be taken w physics. and u r not allowed 2 double up on math sci courses at my school. This is the most rigourous plan open. btw school offers only like 4 Aps these were the only was i can take &
i was thinking maybe take some college classes at local CC jr sr year.

Why don't you reverse when you will take pre-calc/physics and chemistry. You know, just a few days ago my biosci professor was saying a huge mistake of American high schools is making students take chemistry so early on instead of senior year. I actually kind of agree with this because chemistry is very important to have fresh on the mind in college, especially if you're premed.
I digress however. Without a lot of concrete data, I can't tell you much. You schedule looks good, but your rank is a bit iffy. If you're good is good enough to send several students to ivy leagues schools, stanford and LACs, then this might help you when it's time for you to apply to colleges.

well, its still your soph year you got plenty of time. i understand that your course sched is considered rigorous for your school, but you probably already realized that its a little bit weak for the ivies. you should try to further your studies by advancing on some levels of math/sc. perhaps cty could be an option... Also try having a solid ec especially on the areas you love. dont go off participating in millions of different clubs, but rather try to select a few show your interst by creating a difference.
