My dream school is Wellesley, but unfortunately, my stats leave much to be desired.
I spent my first two years of high school at an all girls boarding school in Mass. after being homeschooled for three years.
These were my grades (ouch):
English I: B
English II: A-
World Cultures: B+
World History Honors: A-
Fund. of Algebra: B
Algebra I: B+
Intro. Physics: B-
French I: C-
French II: C+
My overall GPA right now is only 2.9
I also volunteered 100 hrs. last year at an animal shelter.
Freshman Year: Cross Country
Chosen by Head of School to be part of small panel interviewing world leaders, researching leadership differences between men, women, etc...Interviewed Premier of Bermuda among others
Sophomore: JV Soccer
Varsity Ski Team
Sophomore Page Editor, Yearbook
Contributing Writer, Newspaper
I left the school because my grandfather, who paid all my fees not covered by scholarship (I had almost a full scholarship) was diagnosed with Tuberculosis and I would like to be with him because he raised me and his health is in such poor condition. There are also security issues pertaining to my father, who has been in prison for 10 years. He will be released in Dec. and my mother and I did not think it safe for me to remain in Mass. (I live in Texas)
I am now in homeschool - there are no honors or AP classes. I do intend to take some college courses at the nearby college, however. I am also signing up for a Habitat for Humanity build this summer. I work with my aunt, who is an interior designer, painting, working on houses, etc.
I have taken practice SAT tests out of a book, my highest Verbal was 710, however I have not had much SAT math, and my score is very low: 410. I am set to take the first SAT in Dec.
Sorry for the long post, but I would like some advice as to what I can do over the next two years to make up for my GPA. I plan to major in Political Science or International Relations.

I recommend you contact Wellesley admissions right now, give them your story, be prepared to back it up, and ask them for their review and recommendations.
