I applied Early Action as well...Kind of late, but was it not a great idea for me to apply early? I got a 1480/1600 on the SATS, with a couple additional SAT 2s, 720 being the lowest. My GPA isn't spectactular though, its around 3.7 unweighted, but it is brought down mainly by Bs freshman and sophomore year. Extracurriculars are fine, and I thought the essay was pretty solid. No idea how the teacher or counseler reccomendations are though, not allowed to read them. Thanks.
We need to keep in good touch with fjoekjui, so we know when those letters get put in the mail! We used to have a great mail carrier, but she retired. We now get mail intended not only for our neighbors, but people who live on a completely different street with a completely different street number, too. My daughter got an e-mail from a St. Louis U scholarship committee, congratulating her on her acceptance, and giving instructions on the next steps to seek scholarships--interestingly enough, we never got the original acceptance letter...
So we have an extra special interest in knowing when they are mailed, because I could practically walk from South Bend to my house before our mail carrier actually gets it delivered!
Hey, I'm from California and I applied early action to Notre Dame. The University of Notre Dame is the best around, and I hope to God I get in.

GPA: 4.4 [overall]
SAT I: 1280 [best score]
SAT II: 670 US History, 620 Math II
Legacy: Double Legacy [grandfather, father]
AP Classes: 13 [total], AP Scholar Award
Awards: Basically in almost every subject [end-of-year ceremonies]
Personal Statement: I think it is pretty good.
Community Service: Loads of it (200+ hrs.)

Activities: President of NHS / CSF [2 years, member for 4 years], ASB Vice President, Class Office / Student Council [10, 11, 12 grades], President of Ping Pong Club, President of Bocce Ball Club, Prom Committee, Homecoming Committee, etc. Too many to list.
What do you guys think? I know the SAT is low, and that has me worried.
Thanks, WHSSwim. I am familiar with that section. I find it frustrating though, that once we submit the application we cannot go back and view it. (of course, it was oversight on our part to not just save it as we went along!) So, I do not recall what if anything, was written there. Oh well.
