As it seems this is almost a mandatory thread for all new people and many other join in the fun I might as well. I'm a 10th grader currently in an arts school for writing. My GPA is 3.6, I have all As and am taking all honors classes (granted two of them last marking period were only 90% but hey still an A). I'm going to take Ap classes next year as they're offered. My school doesn't official rank, but my guidance counselor told me I was number 6 out of the 50 students in my grade. I play softball, run 5ks (hoping to do half marathons by the end of the summer). I'm on the school Envirothon team, hip-hop club, student council (I hold treasurer), on the yearbook, and volunteer at a library. Between last year and this year I have about 130 volunteer hours. I also attended Goddard Leadership Legacy Institute, was involved in my school's musical, and did a dance course. My first and only so far PSAT scores were 530 for math and 670 for reading, though they will both definitely be improved over the summer. I'm looking into doing track in the fall and joining the civil air patrol, as my school doesn't have JROTC. Thanks to all who give input. Any and all suggestions for how to improve are welcome and wanted.
