What are My Chances for Vanderbilt?

I am a Freshman in high school, and I was wondering what my chances are in being accepted to Vanderbilt. Am I on the right track to being accepted? My career focus is Medical Science/Psychology and Social Sciences. If I'm not, please recommend other colleges. (Sorry that its so long)

GPA: 4.63 (weighted) 4.27 (unweighted)
All AP Classes

National Honor Society, Spanish Honorary, Honors Club, BETA, FTA, and many more.

I'm on the basketball, track, and cross country team.

I complete 20 hours of community service each month.

My highest grades are in English (100), Science (99) and History (98) My lowest is a 92 in Algebra/Geometry.

Thanks and please answer!
Answer to "27"

My school has a GPA calculating system that I used. Also, its Advanced Placement system is different than most schools. (private)


Here's what I would suggest based on what I've learned from the college admission process, sorry if it's a bit harsh at times, but there's no point in sugar coating, especially with application numbers surging and acceptance rates decreasing in recent years.

First, I'm guessing "AP" refers to an Advanced level of classes within your school and not the national Advanced Placement program classes, since I can't imagine any school, private or otherwise, letting a freshman take all AP classes. In any case, make sure you keep taking the highest level of classes your school offers until the AP classes become available, then you'll have to see what AP classes your school offers that match your areas of interest (if your school doesn't offer AP Psychology, then Biology, Chemistry etc. would be good choices for a medical/science interest).

You should aim not only to just have a high GPA, but also be highly ranked within your class (ranked meaning "within the top 10%" etc. if your school doesn't give individual class rank). This is important because a 4.0 GPA doesn't carry the same prestige if many people in your class also have high GPAs, because although this could mean you're part of a very talented class, it could also mean to admission boards that the classes were perhaps a bit too easy.

While it's great you're so involved in activities, you'll have to make sure you can devote yourself fully to each one. It's not always enough to just be in a club or on a team, especially when applying to competitive schools: the most selective schools want to see leadership, innovation, and impact from you in your activities. You might want to consider being more selective with your activities: stick with the club whose issues you care most about and for which you will be willing and able to go the extra mile for, and pick the sports team(s) which you believe you excel in and could someday be able to become captain of. Win awards, get your name in the paper, do whatever it takes to show that you were a significant part of your activities and not just another name on the attendance sheet. Quality over quantity; if you don't believe me you should check Vanderbilt's own website.

Finally, your SAT scores will be important. They aren't the end-all-be-all, but they do provide colleges with an idea of how you compare to students throughout the country and not just within your school. There's no magic minimum score you need to get, nor do you need a 2400. Look at the mean range of scores for all the schools you will apply to: if you're within that range, feel good about your scores and move on.
And just to get those ranges in your mind, here are the middle 50% ranges of scores from the freshman class at Vanderbilt this year:
SAT CR 650–740
SAT M 680–760
SAT W 630–720
Also plan to take SAT II subject tests, as many competitive schools require them.

You've still got a long way to go until you'll be applying to schools, but it's good to be thinking and planning. As for Vanderbilt specifically, if you want to set your heart on a school this early, then you should learn everything you can about the school.
If you live nearby, visit.
Talk to people.
Take the time to learn things about the school that aren't found on its website.
Make your admission essay(s) special to show your interest in the school and why you belong there.
Make sure they know you've researched the school thoroughly and **aren't just picking it for the name!**
Who knows, maybe once you look into it some more you'll find you don't want to go there after all. You should do the same for all the schools you want to apply to.

Hopefully this helps a bit, sorry for the length.

Good luck and keep up the hard work.

FTA Satellite Receivers: a Household Device

In the last five to six years the FTA satellite receiver has become an everyday household electronic device.  People all over the world are buying free to air receivers because of their growing and always evolving features and capabilities.  FTA receivers these days are gaining popularity all over.  Starting initially in Europe, the craze spread globally shortly after.  With FTA satellite TV being available in almost every country across the globe, FTA satellite is the wave of the TV future.  

Free to air satellite TV channels are free.  You can connect your receiver up to multiple satellite dishes and point your dish at different satellites in space.  There are thousands of 100% free satellites in space with limited channels per satellite.  Some free to air channels include PBS, International channels, and locals.  These companies broadcast their signal for free.  The majority of people with FTA receivers don't point their dishes at these satellites.  Infact, people all over the world including North America are reprogramming their boxes so they can point their dishes at real satellite TV and watch channels for free.   This is actually where FTA keys come into play.  In order to watch FTA satellite TV this way.  You need to be constantly entering what are called FTA keys or Dish keys into your receiver so that your receiver can keep itself updated with the satellites in space.  This enables you to watch TV.

Because the keys are constantly changing and always need to be entered manually each time a key change occurs, this presents a problem and inconvenience to the user.  This is why people program files called autoroll bins on to their receivers.  Autoroll files automatically roll the keys over to the new keys everytime they change.  These are what people often refer to as FTA fixes.  FTA fixes fix your receiver essentially by getting your channels to work with very little human interaction other than initially programming the new FTA file to your receiver a few times a year.  FTA files don't work forever, they also go down from time to time and the user will have to load the new autoroll bins.  

Usually people get their autoroll bin files from sources like FTA Support websites.  FTA Support sites offer a complete support service to their members giving them all the software, files, keys, and online technical support they'll ever need to keep themsselves always up and watching TV.  FTA support sites usually include online support and troubleshooting via email and they usually have all the downloads and setup instructions you'll ever need to get your receiver working all the time.

FTA receivers are getting bigger and better offering new innovative and experimental ideas and technologies that keep them interesting all the time.  Many new features FTA receiver owners have learned to love are 7 day EPG (electronic program guides), PVR functions (record, pause, and rewind live TV), DivX movie watching capabilities, and many more little features and add-ons that keep things very interative and enjoyable.
