    I am a highschool Junior, and I would like some opinions on which parts of my file need improvement.

    Naturalized Citizen from Russia

    GPA (uw) - 96.02 or 3.9
    Class rank - 14/428, Top 3%
    National Junior Honor Society
    National Honor Society
    Gifted Education Program

    All Honors classes throughout
    Will have 8 APs, all my school has excluding languages and programming

    SAT CR - 570
    SAT M - 580
    SAT W - 560

    1 year Mock Trial
    2 years Ski Club
    3 years Tutor (will be 4)
    3 years Track and Field (will be 4 along with Leadership Committee and letter next year)
    1 year Leo Club President (will be 2)

    Applying to Boys State


    I know I need to improve my SATs, but what else?

    I stay after school 2 days a week for Leo Club, reg meeting and officers meeting, and 1 day to tutor. This is without Track. During the weekends I do not do anything productive besides catch up on school work.

    Any suggestions on anything productive I can do during the summer?

    What about community service type activities or a church group ?

    That's what I wanted to do during the summer. Leo Club is a community service club that is operated under my highschool and works with the local Lions Club chapter.

    That is why my son spent his summers doing. He enjoyed it so much, it has carried over in to the school year !
