I just started my junior year and I'm seriously lacking in my EC department. Here are my stats: SAT Subject Tests: Math 2 (800), Physics (800) and Chemistry (760) - I'll be taking Bio in October/December SAT - Haven't taken it yet but I will in October/December APs (self-studied) - AP Calculus BC (5), Chemistry (5), Physics C: E&M (5), Mechanics (5), Computer Science A (5) and Statistics (5) - I'll be taking Bio and English Lang and Comp next year. GPA (CBSE) - 9th grade (10.0/10.0), 10th grade (95.4%) ECs: House Captain (9) IT Secretary (10) One of the 11 state finalists for the Junior Science Olympiad (NSEJS) (10) Play the guitar but no certification (since 8th, I guess) MOOCs - MITx's Python track (6.00.1x and 6.00.2x) and their Data Science course on edX Decent at front end web development Tutored my help's kids for two years and a high school sophomore this summer I've had a really hard time finding any decent summer programs or internships because nobody here wants to hire a high schooler. Please help me out if you know someone who'd be interested in giving a high schooler with an interest in Biology and programming an internship. Also can you chance for some Johns Hopkins, UIUC and other colleges with a decent Bio and CS program?

Congratulations on your achievements so far. You have worked hard on academics so definitely continue to maintain these grades. You have developed theoretical knowledge about computing through the online courses, however you need to show how you have applied that knowledge in the real world. If you are struggling to find an internship, think about doing an independent project. Find an issue in your community that you wish to solve and see if you can use your knowledge about computer engineering and biology to present potential solutions. What are some of the problems that you or your family face at home, or....View More

ChanceMe (CS/Bio major) for Johns Hopkins, UIUC, WashUSTL, Stanford, Ivies, and other T30s. Stats: (Just started my junior year at a new school) Freshman - SAT Math 2 (800) Sophomore - SAT Physics (800), SAT Chemistry (760) APs - 2017 - Calculus BC (5), Physics C: Mechanics (5); 2018 - AP Chemistry (5), AP Physics C: E&M (5), Statistics (5), Computer Science A (5) Upcoming tests - SAT in October, SAT Biology M in December, AP Biology and AP English Language and Composition in May. If my practice tests are any indication, I'll probably end up getting a mid-1500's score on the SAT. GPA (CBSE) - 9th - 10.0/10.0; 10th - 95.4% **school change** ECs: One of 11 state finalists for the Junior Science Olympiad (NSEJS) - 10 State Rank 25 in JSTSE - 9 Guitar (no certifications though) - 3 years now House Captain - 9 IT Secretary - 10 MOOCs on edX - MITx's Python track and Data Science MicroMasters program (or was it XSeries?) without a certificate.

I'm currently in 11th class. Should I leave JEE for applying abroad (MIT, Stanford or Princeton)? CGPA in 9th: 9.4, 10th Boards: 93%. My ECs: cleared JSTSE, NSEJS (Junior Science Olympiad)(state top 1%(top 10 in state) and national top 1 %), ZIO and ZCO, International Mathematics Olympiad training camp, International Linguistics Olympiad training camp, International Science and Engineering Fair (held in Pittsburgh, USA) finalist, Represented India at Tournament of Towns (summer program) and Sharygin Geometry Olympiad in Russia.

Getting into Ivy Leagues seems to be the aspiration of every Indian student. I will not deny that these universities are top notch but being successful does not hinge on getting into Ivy Leagues. It depends on what you do with your degree after that. I can name many students who were not admitted into an Ivy League but turned out very successful later in life. You have a very good profile but I am not convinced it is strong enough for you to get into an Ivy League school. But you could get into some of the best schools....View More
