I hate to start another one of these threads, but I am curious about how my application would compare... I'm a junior, not attending SLS (did not apply). My Weighted GPA is currently 4.09 (Freshman ~ 3.98, Sophomore ~ 4.22, 1st semester Junior ~ 4.12 i think). I've taken exclusively 400 classes when available, with the exception of French. I'm 7th in my class of just under 300, at a Connecticut high school that's about as competitive as public schools can get. I have not gotten my SAT scores back, but they will almost certainly fall between a 2100 and a 2250. My academics are definitely the strongest part of my app. I will have played 4 years of football; i haven't yet been a varsity starter but i will be in my senior year, and i weight lift 3-4 times per week in the football off-season. I also sing in the sophomore through senior advanced choir and the barbershop quartet (both groups have an extracurricular commitment). The only other activity worth mentioning is National Honor Society. Leadership is where I'm a little bit weaker... Unless I get President of the National Honor Society (elections are in a few days), I won't have a legitimate leadership position to speak of. I would appreciate any insight or suggestions for how to improve my chances - especially in regard to leadership positions. Thanks!
