    So this is a little early, but here it is:

    I'm currently a Junior in High School

    Just took my first SAT and scored a 1270 (670 English), (600 Math). This also included the optional essay, which I scored a 6 6 7 respectively.

    My unweighted GPA is a 3.6 and my weighted GPA is a 4.3

    My father and Grandfather are both CG veterans

    I'm currently slot number 5 on the Varsity cross country team at my school

    I'm on the varsity debate team

    I am completely fluent in both English and Spanish and partially fluent in French

    My mother is 100% Argentine and my father is 100% American

    I am a certified scuba diver and have worked as a beach lifeguard.

    Next summer, I plan on attending the AIM camp and also completing an internship in the Argentine Coast Guard.

    So based on the above info, what areas should I improve on/add more to?

    Keep taking the SAT and make sure you take Physics and Chemistry and at least Pre Calculus.

    Try the ACT. Some find they achieve higher scores on this test.
