    Hello,
    This is my first post on this forum, and I was wondering what my chances were at getting in.
    My class rank currently sits at 38/326 and I believe it shall improve
    My GPA currently is at a 5.0 weighted and around a 3.76 unweighted
    I am currently taking 4 APs in my junior year, I have taken 2 last year and I have scheduled 6 for next year. I shall have four years of French, and have only taken the most difficult schedule my school has offered
    I am the captain of both our schools varsity academic team and model UN. I am also in Mock trial and I will soon become a member of national honors society. I participate in my church and attend many missions trips and several hundred hours of community service. I have a varsity letter for track and a jv letter for tennis. I also placed first in my district for discus throw. Last time I checked, I was able to almost max out on pushups sit-ups, and I am currently improving at pull ups. The only difficulty I have faced on that is the mile run but it has been improving.

    My sat score is around 2000 and I believe it shall improve.

    After reading this would you mind to put your opinion in on if you think I have a chance. Also could you offer any ideas for how I could improve my chances? Thank you for your time.

    You've got a fair chance. Assuming you have a reasonable spread of subscores on the SAT then the remaining area the I would focus on improving is leadership. Not that you don't have any, or even that it's insufficient, but that's what I would be working on. Try for captain on your sports teams, more responsible positions in CAP, etc. etc.

    Thank you for your input, it's very helpful. I will work to improve my leadership. I forgot to write that I have recently joined our schools debate team.
