High School Experience

My high school experience was great. Of course it was tough, but it was great. I wasn’t the thorough organization of the curriculum and how the teachers communicated it to the students aka classes were run perfectly. There wasn’t really anything I didn’t like about high school except how the athletic programs at our school were ran.


Course choices

I liked history in the beginning but I’m now a big fan of math and English. I’m interested in the human body so I took a course in it my senior year.


AP/IBs

None


GPA

4.65 weighted


Standardized Testing



Extracurriculars

I played AAU Basketball (didn’t play for my school team).


Recommendations

I had a great relationship with every single one of my teachers. I could’ve asked anyone but I chose the ones that taught the subjects I liked most my senior year and the ones that taught the subject my major lied under.


Essays

I wrote about the hardships that came with going from a French educational system to an English one.


Strengths

I had a diverse background and showed academic competence given my circumstances


Advice



Circumstances

Underprivileged living situation.


Why?

It’s the closest to New York; it is one of the best schools in America. I fell in love with its presentation and the enthusiasm of those running the school along with the student body.
