Chance of getting into Harvard?1Jarin2012-11-05 05:09:02
I grew up most of my life with my parents whisper in my ear, "you'll grow to go to Harvard." Other kids my age and my friends told me to be more realistic, and listened. Recently, however, I started looking at more schools and I decided to visit Harvard on a hunch. I ended up falling in love with the campus, programs, and the world of its own that seems to fit me perfectly. Search the forums that said it was the application, and they said they are looking primarily in passion and leadership. It was my goal to get the best grades (although I'm not top of my class, I am in the top 10 of my class), I have a 4.0 GPA, I'm in a youth leadership academy (Dynamy), I was in NJHS, football and tennis game, I'm in the math team, take the AP Spanish, AP Government self study in the AVID program, practices Worcester Future Teachers Academy, and I will participate in a program that allows me to take college courses in Santa Cruz with a particular school and high school credit (basically as Dual Enrollment). I'm a sophomore by the way. To the greatest misery: Psychology, Political Science, Elementary Education. In your opinion, do you think it would be a good match for Harvard? My plan is to continue with the classes and programs that I'm with, as I am very passionate about all of them and do not want to quit. Harvard would be my ideal school (which has nothing to do with the view from my parents or push me, this is entirely my own choice), I just want to know my chance. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus A semi-related side question: I'm going to North High School, is known for the high academic, as the Worcester Public Schools are known for. On the basis of competition, which is really an opportunity? A girl who went to Worcester Public Schools lifetime really a chance against someone educated in a private school? Any advice or assurances are welcome :) I just want to know if I'm in way over my head or if you really have the opportunity to climb Thanks soo much in advance![View Answers]

I'm trying to get into NYU for acting. I'm in a community college right now. My major is Liberal Arts with an option of Psychology . I do not want to finish it off. I want to take action now.

I have none at all. Can anyone give me some idea? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I just turned 23 and now realize I should pursue my dreams . If there is something that I have in my life are my dreams . My specialty was originally nursing , because I decided to be more realistic about life . so while I was in nursing school I got my CNA license . I worked at a hospital this summer and hated it. I cried and went through a lot of health problems related to stress . I am still . I can not see myself being anything else . People failed me , friends , family and even my work . But God never does. I approached him this fall as I started going to church every Sunday . I feel like if I go for my dreams I will succeed . I do not know if I'll do it , but I want to try.

MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My overall GPA is a transcript MedlinePlus 94.50%. I have maintained all A is with the exception of 3 levels of B (AP U.S. History I'll second term for physical education and art) in my transcript.

MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I took the SAT II Math 1 and got a 660, and I will take more 3-6 in the fall of 2009. MedlinePlus My greatest interest, in order of preference, are Neuroscience, Business / Corporate, and Philosophy. I'm going with any of these and would definitely love double strokes if available. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I kept looking at my JHS until 9th ​​grade, and then I graduated from my JHS being the Salutatorian. My strongest subjects are math and science, and have done very well on standardized tests of the processes themselves. MedlinePlus I've been part of my yearbook committee of school and have volunteered for over 100 hours in my school library and over 700 hours at my local church / temple. MedlinePlus I also received about 100 hours or more to be a part of the ARISTA National Honor Society. MedlinePlus I made hospital rotations in hospital associated with my school.

MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I started working on my essays, and received some of my letters of recommendation (recommendations are amazing!) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have served in student government at my school as Representative Junior Grade, and there is a 99% probability that the Representative will also Higher Grade. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus For this summer, I applied for a number of practices and few will do math and / or science [research] Summer Internship. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My school does not offer many AP courses and offers no honors class, but I'm challenging the toughest classes. This year I took AP U.S. History, and that was all I could take. I'm taking AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP and English next year. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Not sure but I think you could make the bride Queens Medicine program, in which I will take college-level courses in calculus, English, Chemistry and with no college credit. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am also looking forward to the year of the Juvenile Justice Board practices gap which is basically like the student government in school, but has a great effect on the city and dealing with state officials. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Next year I will also be part of the Big Brother Big Sister club, the debate team / mock trial, yearbook committee, Library Services Community, health and wellness club, and I'm looking forward to being president of National ARISTA Honor Society. I will also start my own club based on Vedanta philosophy and organization create a group that will help position the genocide in Darfur. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also, if this helps-2 of my cousins ​​go to / graduated from Columbia University.

What should I do if I don't get into the nursing program...?0Zach Marcil2012-10-20 16:22:21
It's really horrible, but in my school that just started this year I'm asking that because there will be a waiting list. What is unfair about it is because I know some others and friends who could not enter, but they were all in the waiting list (who had to wait a little, however, about 1-2 quarters is not as bad as wait a year or more). Anyway, basically, if I do not get involved in this program, which I've been working very hard to get in and have already finished all my general education requirements and prerequisite classes, so that if does not fit, then I d just have to wait another whole year to apply again (and still no guarantee that it will be accepted) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am concerned about this because my average has dropped a few points (but still a little more than 3.0 at least they now have about 3.3 overall GPA). So, with all candidates running (there are over 400 here with only less than 60 seats: (MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I do not know if I'll ever have the opportunity. There is hardly any other nursing schools where I live well and I am currently going to college, so I really want to finish and get my degree. Come to think, I do not know if it was really worth going through all this trouble to nursing and perhaps even the risk of not getting on What would you do if you were me? I want to stay in the city (I live with my family) to leave the state or city and transfer or apply elsewhere is not an option for me! MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So if you do not enter the nursing program, you want to wait or take time off from college? voluneteer perhaps? Or should I do something greater and more or less start all over again? MedlinePlus I can make a few more years, so they do not really care, but it's my 3rd year (I'm a young staff point soon), so do not know if it's worth or end up being bad for me if swithc older. If I do switch I am interested in sociology or psychology major but I know it would be practically difficult to find work in the field and is quite different, but I just do not like to major in biology because it is such a difficult subject (I like bio I do not want to do wrong even though it is closer to the infirmary, and have to do all the work again, especially labs my least favorite), MedlinePlus Honestly, if I had known all this would happen in advance =, that probably would not have chosen for my nursing major. MedlinePlus is too difficult :/ MedlinePlus Sorry for writing so much! I really hope someone can help me with this. I have to make a decision and I'm having a difficult time doing so. I'm not sure what the best way forward. I can only mention a reply like what I would do in their place, but please read what I wrote above.
