Don't give up guys! I got rejected the first time too.
Just keep in mind, it's a great program if you get in so definitely keep trying, but it's nothing life-changing or anything like that so if you don't get in it's not the end of the world. One program will not make or break you. One college will not make or break you. It's not about where you are, but how far you can go with what you have.
Show your interest in science through other things. Join Science Olympiads, apply for a high school research program, take a college course over the summer or ANYTHING else that your heart desires (and that your parents are willing to pay for of course ).
^ I think I was in the same room as Wong Tong and JHU, wasnt there some guy whose phone rang off and that distracting proctor? My friend in the room also got rejected and another who wasnt in that room got accepted, I still havent found out, but I think they're rejecting everyone in that room cause of that incident, that suxs. :/ not fair at all...........w.e i still have that internship for research work to do siemens
Accepted! And good thing too, since I'm a Junior. But don't worry, guys, you'll get in when you're older. It was a big surprise when I got my letter. My mom came into my room and tried to hug me, and so I thought something bad had happened, since she normally doesn't do that...
Anyway, does anyone have any idea what classes are best to take?
And I was in the Mathematics Hall, where the guy made us go out of the room and come back in again. It felt like everyone was intimidated by everyone else in the room. I was the south asian girl with long hair. I think I talked to another girl about the test during break near the entrance while eating Twix...
Does anyone know how many kids are a part of the shp? Because in the letter it says they accepted about 400 kids, which would imply that 400 seniors (who were accepted as juniors) just left. Not that they were all accepted as juniors, but still.
