Can I get into the University of Pennsylvania?

Right now I'm a junior, and really stressing out about college!! UPenn is my dream school, and I want to go there more than anything, and I was just wondering if there were anyone who went or is going there who could give me some tips. My GPA, last I saw, was above 3.9, and going up because I'm still getting all As. I'm in mostly honors classes, with a few AP with more next year. I'm on the tennis team, Amnesty International, National Honor Society, and recycling club, with a ton of volunteer hours at an animal shelter and the library, and leader of my church's youth group. I speak French, if that helps. I haven't taken SATs yet, but I'm confident they'll be very high too. I'm really interested in the International Relations major, and am researching some summer programs in that area. I really want to go to Penn because they have such a good International Relations program, and I was possibly even looking at the Huntsman Program, though I know that's a long shot. Also it just seems like the perfect school for me. Basically, my question is can I get in with about these things? I'm worrying about how I keep hearing that it's good to have awards and specific leadership positions in your school. Could I get in? I'd really appreciate any helpful suggestions!!! Thanks!!

I'm not going to UPenn but i am going to another college in the fall in Philly. Just by the reading of your achievements, you seem well ready for senior year. Just make sure your SATs scores arent below 1000. There's many scholarships. If your from philly like i am you can sign up next year for the gate scholarship... More
