    No one would really venture to guess. You did not include your grades, SAT/ACT scores, AP courses if any, Honors courses if any. Also, you may have left it out but I don't really see anything I would call leadership. Were you captain of any teams? Officer in any clubs?

    +1 to kinnem, also try to go to girls state if you can. Take both the sat and act if possible as some do better on one of the 2 tests. good luck.

    i have taken all honors courses plus 3 APs. i have not taken the sat/act yet; i am taking them next month. as for the leadership, i plan to take that up a notch in the spring. i am running for key club president, and also i am next year's head of THON. also i was invited to the global leadership conference but did not attend due to monetary issues. if i play my cards right i would also be next year's softball captain

    Softball might come too late to consider . Key club prez is a good idea. I'm an old Key Clubber. Which courses were AP?
