I am a freshman; I want to go to a top school, like Stanford, Berkeley or an Ivy-League school.
I have many friends who go to public and private schools. I am passing my classes with straight A's, but my classes are not as intensive as my friends' classes at other school and I don't feel challenged. I want to have my best shot of getting into the college of my choice, but am also afraid that I won't be competitive enough for the admissions process to get into a top college.
I am an Alpha Scholar.
Being apart of the Alpha Scholars classes has helped me to understand and surpass my academic benchmarks. I realized that I was not being challenged enough in my classes at school; Alpha Scholars' helped me to elevate my academic abilities. On top of that, my new, advanced essay writing skills enabled me to write a competitive personal statement.
