    My .02 Which Isn`t Much, but...

    This all looks very good. Don`t count on playing soccer if you`re not recruited, because as I understand it, soccer is not one of "those" sports that`s easy to be a walk on player.


    Is the 4.0 weighted or unweighted? If it`s unweighted, that`s even better, but if it`s weighted, that`s still pretty good. Being first in class is excellent. College classes are definitely good.

    This looks good too. Volunteering is a +, and class president is also great.

    My suggestions:

    -Since you`re a junior, SAT and ACT are things that you`ll be taking this year, so be sure to do good on them. Have you already taken them? If you aren`t satisfied with your scores, then take it again....and again, and....you get my point.

    -Just keep going with what you`ve got, and work hard. Keep a good Plan B and C open too.

    -Apply for Summer Seminar when the applications open


    That`s my .02 worth, and I`m sure others will have better ideas. :thumb:

    The 4.0 is unweighted, and that makes sense about soccer. I just wasn't sure of how hard that would be to get into. Thank you very much for the help! :biggrin:
