Could I get into Georgetown University?
I am going into my Junior year of high school at a Catholic school. I currently have a 4.2 GPA and I will be taking 2 AP classes (History & French) and every other class will be honors level (including Anatomy & Physiology). I have taken the PSAT's and scored a 1770 and I took the PLAN (practice ACT) and scored a 27. I will soon be volunteering regularly at my local hospital. I currently have not had a job, but will be looking into getting one soon. I am assistant editor for my school yearbook (I will be editor-in-chief senior year), I am involved in Student Council, I am a member of Model U.N., and I am a writer for my school newspaper. I am interested in medicine, languages, and international affairs. Georgetown University is my dream school and I would really like to get in. Do you think I could based on my information? Also, do you know of any other well-known colleges I could get into based on my information? Thank you.
