    My advice: get of CC for a year or so. It'll give you anxiety and burn you out.

    ^ I agree. Don't come back until summer after junior year. CC just stresses you out. :(

    There's no formula. Plenty of people get in for different reasons. There's a thread on this forum about this topic but I don't remember what it was called.

    You can look into past acceptance thread. But I would say focus on your grades first.

    You're a freshman???? Please, please just live your life, work hard and forget about CC for two years.

    Stay off CC until junior year. You want to experience high school as more than just a prep for college. You'll have a better idea of the colleges you want to attend later on. A lot can change in 4 years. Don't worry about colleges for a while. Just work hard and have fun.

    That said, the people I know personally who were accepted to Harvard include a 4.0 state saxophone soloist winner and a writer/literary author and editor.

    Haha, I can't help but respond to such inquiries in equally idiotic terms. xD

    Just find a passion and follow it. I'll tell you some examples from this year's EA admits. National top rock climber, small business ceo (charity organization), author of a novel, etc. There's no cookie cutter formula for how to be unique. Do what you love as best as you can. Uniqueness will ensue.

    Excuse me but I have actually worked out a formula. I'm selling it for 1000 dollars.

    "how do you be unique "

    If you have to ask, they you won't be able to achieve it. Either you ARE original and unique or you're not. It's not a list of things to do. It's something you inherently ARE.
