    I saw earlier that you got the CV scholarship from Vanderbilt. Would you mind if I asked you some questions about your stats and EC? Much thanks

    Hello, I'm a high school senior looking at Vanderbilt for next year. I see you received the Cornelius Vanderbilt scholarship, congrats. I'm going to apply for it, and was wondering if you could supply some info. I don't want to sound intrusive, and if you don't want to answer my questions, I won't take any offense.I'm just trying to figure out my chances for receiving the scholarship.
    Did you take AP classes if they were offered?
    Did you have a lot of community service and ECs? Could you list some?
    Did you have to go to an interview? How was it?
    What was your essay about? Being as unbiased as possible, how did you think it was?
    If you read your teacher recs, were they outstanding, or just generic?
    What do you think was the reason you received the scholarship?
    Did you think you had a chance?
    Why did you turn down Vanderbilt for Cornell?

    Thank you so much for answering these questions, and if not, thanks for taking the time to read them. I hope you have a good time at Cornell.

    im actually taking CHIN 1109 which is for chinese kids and its only 4 credits, so im hoping that that'll work out. I applied as a psych major so i thought i owed it to myself to take one psych class at least before transferring to ILR like i hope to do so the next semester if possible. What's CS? (sry if its a stupid question lol)
