Common app, I talked about how I use to be introverted and a follower but after getting NHS President my life changed and I became more extroverted and more of a leader. Everyone I showed loved this essay so I suppose it's good. Cornell Supplement, I talked about my passion and pretty much my obsession with weather. This essay is quite good too (I think haha)
AP Stats teacher talked about how she was nervous about me because I hadn't been in a honors level math class before junior year. She went on to talk about how I struggled in the beginning but I progressively got better and by January she said I was her best student.
History teacher talked about how I was a natural leader and on group projects we consistently got the highest grades. I don't remember much more than that (my counselor paraphrased for me)
