Please chance me for Kenyon!
Would you guys mind chancing me? I'm happy to chance back. I applied under Regular Decision.
GPA: 5.3/5.0 weighted or around a 3.9/4.0 unweighted I believe (I haven't crunched all the numbers it's an estimate but my GPA is strong.)
Junior- AP U.S History, AP English, AP Physics (All A's)
Senior: AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP English (All A's)
AP Scores- 4 on U.S History
Other courses: I'm in my fifth year of Spanish, and I'm currently in Creative Writing.
Extracurriculars: Campaign Manager/co-founder of Red Cross Club at my school, Secretary of NHS, Member of Spanish Honor Society. I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, Soup Mobile, a Children's Advocacy Center in my city, Measles Initiative and Relay for Life.
Essay: Pretty strong. I explained my experience of going through my older brother's drug addiction with a metaphor.
Hook: I go to a project based learning school- A New Technology High. It makes me stand out, I think?
I also interviewed with the regional rep back in October. I feel that it was obvious to her how nervous I was, but overall it went well. A half-way decent but not excellent interview is better than none.
Supplements- I feel that the first two supplement questions are pretty strong, but my third answer (What makes you a fit for Kenyon) was rushed and I only explained one reason. Does screwing up on one question basically ruin my chances with Kenyon or do I still have a shot?
I applied as English and second choice International Studies.
Thank you in advance!
