In the top ten students of my high school class. High SATs. You need to be in the honors classes at your high school and have 6 or more AP classes under your belt and be in the top 10% of your class with a GPA of 3.7 or higher. SAT scores are optional but most are around the 2000 range if submitted. I was well within the top 10% of my class (19 out of 350) and was captain of the cross country team and varsity wrestler. Scored decently on the SATs (600V,690M). I took all honors classes and AP classes available at my public high school in Massachusetts. I went on to get an MBA at top ten program at University of Michigan and went on to a stellar career at Microsoft Corp and I am now well off financially and in a great career in a job I love.
