    Work on sat or act. It's superscored and it's a glaring weak point in your application. Besides that, everything looks solid.

    ACT/SAT scores....

    Your resume looks solid. I agree with EagleScout you need to bring up your ACT/SAT scores. WP super scores your test results. In other words, WP will account your highest results in a series. You have a few more chances to take the ACT/SAT test before the application periods ends in February. Most kids find they plateau after their 3rd or fourth time taking these test and need help to increase their results. I would take advantage of the many resources available to study on how to take the test. There is a technique to increasing your scores. There was a noticeable increase in the ACT/SAT scores from the Class of 2016 and 2017. I’m sure Class of 2018 will increase also. Set a goal for you to reach an ACT at 31 or 32 and a SAT in the 730 area. Math and science are key areas to focus on to.

    It can be done! Focus on your goals and push yourself to excel!

    There is no luck involved, just hard work.

    Push Hard, Press Forward
