Which schools should I apply to with this data?

-Agewise, I should be going into 11th Grade, but I will be going into 12th Grade in the Fall.

-My cumulative high school GPA is 3.6600

Freshman GPA: 3.4623

Sophomore GPA: 3.6667

Junior GPA: 3.8608

-My class rank is 96/593.

-I took 3 Pre-AP classes my freshman year. My sophomore year, I took 1 AP class and 1 Pre-AP class. My junior year, I took 2 AP classes (including AP Composition) and 2 Upper Level classes. My senior year, I will be taking 11/14 of my classes either AP or Upper Level.

-I am actively involved in school activities and am a leader/founder/captain in pretty much all 6 of them, except for maybe one…

-I have been employed all three years of high school, and am in the process of finding a new one.

-This summer I have volunteered at both the hospital and the library. And for the past 3 years, I have been a peer tutor at school.

-I am active in my church youth group and am president

-My ACT score is 31, and will be retaking the ACT in October

The real question should be where do you WANT to go? Short of Harvard, Yale, and MIT most people doing the hiring are looking for your GPA and what you did in school. So instead of asking where should you go, you should really be asking where should you go that best suits you.

The second question is would you rather be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in the ocean? Meaning your scores at Harvard are nothing, while you may be heaped with scholarships at a large state school such as Penn State or Purdue. Personally I’d rather have on my resume a 4.0 GPA from Penn State and have close to no debt because of scholarships.

With your credentials you can go Ivy League. You need to think about what you want to study and where the best place is for that. Outside of academics you also have to consider the best place for you socially. You want to go to an institution that will be nurturing, challenging, and help you to reach your limitless potential. You will undoubtedly get into any school you apply to if you align it well with your interests and your personality. The question will then become which one will you pick.

A good idea is to make a list of the places you would not mind living for four years, city-rural, big school-small school, pre-dominantly white-diverse, single sex-co-ed, far from home-close to home, liberal arts-discipline specific, expensive-reasonable. After you decide these things look at all the schools out there that compare with your list of needs and wants, and apply. Like I said, you can go anywhere, so only apply to the places that you really want to go. Then pick the ones who offer you the most money or who were at the top of your list.

Good luck!

I don’t know about other schools but you can get into the University of Oklahoma easily. With that ACT score you can get in the honors program if you get your gpa up to 3.75 or be in the top ten percent of you class.

Have you taken any AP tests? You should at least try even if you don’t get a 4 or 5.

I’d say that you can get into some of the mildly selective schools.
