| | AP classes really show you are dedicated and can even get you out of some classes! So if you have the opportunity to take some, do so! You also don't have to send in your ACT score if you are a por test taker. Interview instead and you still have a good chance. There is an initial interview process. A portfolio may be requested for some Degree programs.
The Georgetown admissions process is probably the most interesting of the selective schools (I know because I sit on the admissions committee). Each committee consists of admissions officers (who know about the individual high schools and have a broad view of the process), faculty, deans, and students--so all members of the university community are involved. Academics (course selection, grades, class rank, standardized tests (SAT/ACT, Achievement Tests, AP Exams) and Personal Attributes (essays, recommendations, extracurricular activities, work, travel, interview) are RATED EQUALLY in the process, so it is not uncommon to have valedictorians and people with high SATs to be denied when others from the same high schools with slightly lower academic credentials but stronger personal attributes admitted. Georgetown is filled with people who LOVE the school and has an extremely low attrition rate--the admissions committees do a good job determining who would benefit most from Georgetown and vice-versa--so expressing your enthusiasm for attending the school is a big help (through your application, essays, interview, recommendations).

Be sure to visit the campus when students are here (not in summer). I recommend attending a class and spending the night. Also be sure to interview with a counselor. This helps the Unviersity get to know you beyond your grades and essay.
