Western High student worries about college after school's application missteps

Cherry Abdou says that from the moment she walked into Western High School four years ago, she has been crafting her college application. The senior chose the college preparatory school hoping to get into a top premedical program when she graduated. She built a competitive resume, including an academic record that secured her title as the salutatorian of her class, a host of extracurricular activities including four years of lacrosse and presidency of the National Honor Society; and a transcript of mostly Advanced Placement and honors courses.
