Question by Angelica: What are my chances of getting into Boston University?
So my GPA is a 3.9 unweighted
I have over 200 volunteer hours
My SAT was Math: 610 Reading: 500 Writing: 550 (I took it again, waiting for new scores)
MY ACT was a composite score of 25 with a writing score of 8/12 (Taking it again this weekend)
Honors Classes I’ve Taken: Honors Biology, Honors Chemistry, Honors Physics, Pre Calc (If that’s an honors class lol)
AP Classes I’ve taken/will take: AP Psychology, AP Physics, AP U.S. History, AP Calc
Scores on AP Tests: AP Psychology: 4
I want to double major in Psychology and Film/Television, I’ve taken our Advanced video productions class for about 5 semesters!
Relay for Life (Walked for cancer and volunteered) : 57 hours
Silver Beach Elementary (Helped with the kids and ran errands for the teacher) : 8:15 hours
Hovander Park ( Helped take pictures for Down syndrome Outreach and helped with their picnic) : 4:40 hours
St. Francis Childcare (Helped take the kids on field trips and around the class room) : A little over 50 hours
Rotary Interact (A club at school, help around the community once a month) : 5:30 hours and more to come when the school year starts, I’m Vice President
Cornwall Church (Learned how to operate lights and did it for services) : 11 hours and more to come
I also filmed a short film for my culminating project about Down syndrome and volunteered about 20 hours for that, filming during his physical therapy and at home, and also my editing time.
I also did junior varsity fast pitch freshman year and am in the mentor program this year that meets with incoming freshman once a month!
I also went to a film camp for a week at Western Washington University which I got a full ride scholarship for. The year before I attended UW for a week with a program that I’ve been with since 7th grade (Gear Up) to learn about college. Gear Up is a program that gears us up for college and will stay with us until we graduate high school. Then we get a 6-10 thousand dollar scholarship to any school!
This is my senior year and I’m taking AP Calc, AP Physics, AP U.S. History, Advanced Video Production, Yearbook, Citizenship, and English Independent Study. Next semester is pretty much the same thing
ALSO: If you know of any schools that offer both Film and Psychology programs, please let me know! I feel like I’ve been looking (Especially for one in Washington or Oregon) and I can’t find one close. Thank you! 🙂
