Im looking to transfer and double major in finance/math. I would like to go to University of Illinois or Depaul university, perhaps, i could get into a top 20 but im not counting on it. Should i take fewer classes? I may even transfer to a public state school after 30 credits then transfer again to a top school after 60 credits. Either way if i dont get into an ivy league school I will do well and try and get accepted into an ivy league masters program(MFE, MSF, MFIN etc) I would eventually like to become a quant or trader at a firm and then start my own in Russia. I have ambition and drive for success but in high school things were different.

Is it worth applying to Harvard with these stats?

Will I make friends this way?

I'm 15 and am currently home-schooled. I have absolutely zero friends. Luckily, my mom has the same interest and tastes as me (rock music, sense of humor, etc.), so I guess you could say she's a friend. Anyways, I am probably going to start taking a Spanish course and journalism course at my local high school in January. They'll get back to us in the next week whether or not there are seats available, but they're 99.9% sure there are. Also, this upcoming spring I'm going to start dual enrollment at my state college for psychology and english. And next fall I will be on the high school's golf team (this has been confirmed, but their season is almost over for this year, so I would start next year.) My question is, will I make friends this way? Even if the high school thing doesn't work out, will I meet people my age at the college?
Excuse me? Thank you for your insulting input, but being home-schooled was solely my choice. My life in private school was heII and my parents had already tried the public school route with my brother, and it wasn't successful.

Contrary to popular belief, being home-schooled doesn't mean I live in a damn tree house, preach the gospel, and don't know what makeup or a flat iron is. I own drawers full of high-end makeup and use it religiously. And unlike most teenagers, I actually know how to apply it! Not just put black eyeliner on in order to mimic a raccoon. I *gasp* own a flat iron and a curling iron. I use my flat iron everyday.

So if your type of ignorant personality is what embraces the public school, I will gladly sit out for it.

Can I get into Texas A&M Engineering with these grades and scores?

I am planning on transferring to Texas A&M Engineering from another college.
These are my grades from my first 2 semesters of college.
Next semester I want to get into TAMU. Do I have a good chance of getting in?

International Relations - A
Calculus - A
Physics -B
Honors Art - A
Philosophy - A
Psychology - A
Intro to Engineering - A
Japanese - A
Chemistry - A

I also have a lot of extra curricular activities:
High School Golf Team.
Treasurer in the Center for the study of Local Issues
And more...

I want to apply but if TAMU has too high of standards I want to know if I should just apply at other lower standard engineering colleges.

Thank you.

Also, is there anything else I can do to get a higher chance of getting into this college?

How can i put my nerves out of my mind for golf tryouts?

Tryouts for the golf team are this week. Today, half of the team went to a golf dome to tryout since we just got some snow here and the course wasnt open. i get the day off tomorrow since i went to the dome today, but on wednesday we are planning on playing golf since the course will be open. I am a freshman and i have the talent to make at least jv maybe a shot at varsity. As wednesday approaches, though, i am having thoughts of shooting terrible and not making the team. Today at the dome i was sweating up a storm because i was so nervous because i was being watched by the coaches on almost every shot. I didnt miss a shot today, and i got a lot of great compliments from the coaches, but im am super scared to play wednesday. I have played the course many times before, but i am just having doubts. How can i turn my mentality for good so i can play an excellent round?
