What else can I do?

, [edited]

I am a sophomore at a public high school that ranks in the Top 10 in NY. Here are my stats:

- GPA (unofficial): 3.85 (UW), 4.11 (W)

- DECA: 1st Place at States, VP of Written for next year (2020-21)

- Science Olympiad: Numerous medals at regional and state-level

- Hospice Volunteering: Bereavement support/educating new patients

- Low-income health center: Helping patients fill out forms

- Looking for shadowing and research opportunities

What else can I do? And does anyone know of any research opportunities that are neuroscience or medical-related that are remote?

Also, if anyone knows what's going on with the chancing, could you please let me know? For some reason my chance for all the colleges on my list dropped 30% today and i don't know why

neuroscience
IvyLeague
application
admissions
extracurriculars
Excuse me, may you explain to me what DECA is? and how I can get involved as well? I read that you had to be a senior but I see that you're a sophomore just like me? How can I do DECA?

Try debate thats always a good idea and and my school a top5 in a midwest state had a neuroscience club so your school might have one.

For chancing CV might have updated some statistics and that caused a drop. Id recommend emailing them to find out more at support@collegevine.com

Thank you so much! I actually had tried debate last year, I went to one local for PF and one for LD and failed miserably... I went 1-3 in PF and 2-2 in LD but I felt out of place so I dropped the club. Our school doesn't have neuro club and seeing as I'm currently starting a different one I don't think it makes sense to try and undertake 2 at the same time.
As for the chancing, I know that the stats probably did affect it, as I can see the SAT scores and GPA for the colleges I have have gone up, but I don't see how it could change my chances from 36-40% to 1-4%
I found the reason, it says I haven't cleared the minimum academic requirement... but before I had, and now I haven't? I don't know I'm just confused lol
Have you tried congress debate?

If your school has a DECA chapter, its open to all high schoolers! If you don't, talk to a teacher, preferably a business teacher, about potentially starting one. Its a competition-based club where you attend a regional and state conference, and if you place in the top 4 in your event, you can move on to the international competition. It's a lot of fun, and they organize a lot of other events so we can be doing things while we wait to compete/wait for results.

i agree that you should email CV support (i think it's support@collegevine.com) about the chancing thing. they should be able to tell you if there was some kind of update to their data or the chancing engine.
