Would I be a competitive applicant, even though I am applying as a college freshman? My high school gpa (unweighted) was 3.9 and I was a straight A student except for 2 B+ in freshman year. My class rank by the time I graduated was 24/399 so I was in the top 10%. I successfully completed the IB program and took AP Calc BC my senior year. My ACT composite was a 31 (33 English, 28 math, 34 reading, 29 science, 30 writing) but I plan on retaking to get my math/ski score up. My scholastic awards include certificate of excellence in science, English, and high honor roll for all 4 years of HS. In terms of athletics, I lettered in track and volleyball freshman year. I also lettered in volleyball again sophomore year. The IB program took a lot of my time so I took a step back from athletics junior year and ran JV cross country senior year. I have received a couple athletic awards (most improved, national physical fitness award). I haven't taken the CFA yet but I am at the average for all categories but higher for running. In terms of leadership opportunities, I organized an international day at my school and was a presenter (I have lived in the Saudi Arabia/Tunisia for over 14 years) from 10-12th grade. I also was a mentor to IB freshman and sophomore through an organization called IB Engage from 11-12th grade. I also volunteered as a math tutor as a teacher assistant for a class and individually from 10th-12th grade. In addition, I volunteered at an animal shelter and helped teach new volunteers protocol etc. I also helped put together a senior citizen prom, was an office in environmental club, yearbook editor, and national honor society member. I am currently enrolled in an ROTC program for next year and plan on being in student government as a college freshman. While these are my credentials, my primary motive for applying is to serve my country and fufill what I believe is my duty to this great country. A couple unique things about me include speaking 3 languages fluently (Arabic, French, English), living through the aftermath of 9/11 in Saudi Arabia and living through a revolution/an attack on the American school in Tunisia. But back to my question: am I a competitive applicant, even if I'm applying as a freshman in college?
