Let's get this straight!
Having a 33 or 34 IS NOT GOING TO GET YOU IN! I had a 25. Not the best, I know. But they don't automatically just throw your application out! I promise!
Alot of things go into this. Volunteering. ACT, SAT, Leadership positions, involvement, shadowing, interview, and SO MUCH MORE.
Consider this: Your application is a meal being served to an Admission Counselor at a restaraunt. Your ACT and Rank/GPA are the main course. Your extra-curricular activities are the condiments, your interview the quality of service. Without the main course, the condiments and service are irrelevant. With bad service (poor interview), even great food is unpleaseant. When the counselor goes to leave you a tip (admissions), they'll look at everything that you did. Not just one part of the meal.
So what I'm saying is, You could be the most qualified person but if your personality sucks, then you definitley not get in.
Again, if any of you have questions and feel like all people do on here is bash you, I can answer any questions that you have and I'll answer them honestly. I do have experience with the program. Email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
