Could I get into these Universities?
Point Park University - Pittsburgh, PA
I am currently a junior in high school and I have been looking ahead to my future a lot so far. I would like to go to college to triple major in journalism, broadcasting, and history. Then I would like to become a sports broadcaster or sports journalist. I know it's best to go to college in a big metropolitan city that is pretty sports oriented if I want to one-day work in sports, that's why Pittsburgh is the top city in my list. Counting my grades, SAT scores (when they improve), extra curricular activities, experience, etc, do you think I can get in to Point Park University?

I used to volunteer at an after school day care for kids 8th grade and down. Helping them with homework, playing games, and giving them snack.
The extra-curricular activities I am involved in are SADD Club, Wrestling Team, Wrestling Team Student Athletic Trainer, Church Softball Team, and Youth Group. Next year I might be involved in Youth Group. I am also a sports reporter for my high school’s newspaper, The Rocket Star and I have my own sports column called Player of the Month. I have been chosen to be the Sports Editor for my senior year (next year), so next year I will hold a leadership position while still having my own sports column.
Finally, during my junior (this year) and senior year of high school I have a student internship with WOYK 1350, a sports radio-broadcasting network, for both the football and basketball seasons. I will go to all my school’s home and away game, collect stats, call in stats, and broadcast the game I reviewed on live radio.
