    I will most likely apply to Vassar ED II if I do not get accepted EA to my top choice (UChicago). I've kind of fell in love with Vassar over the last couple of months :)

    Haha I'm in the same situation, but with brown.

    I am applying EDII too

    Hey, I'm planning on applying ED II. The only issue... someone from my same high school got admitted ED I. She has better test scores, has better rank (she is #2 and I'm #4), and is a minority, and the only leg up I have is that I'm part of a lot of extra curriculars and a few more challenging classes. Let me know if I have a chance. Thanks!

    What are your test scores, ec's, etc?
  • jsykgrljsykgrl Posts: 22Registered User New Member
    and I want to add that I'm not holding anything against her. No matter what happens, she (and anyone who gets admitted to such a wonderful college) deserves to have been admitted, I just want to know if I have a possibility too.

    SATs:1770
    ACT: 25
    APs: UP US (3), AP Gov. (2), AP Lang (3), and I'm taking AP Environmental and AP Literature
    **our school offers 8 APs total and 3 honors classes, which I did take

    I have about 430 community service hours, and as for ECs there are a lot to list so I'll just put the important ones:
    EIC of Yearbook for 3 years, plus 3 years of Yearbook Camp (I'm a nerd, I know)
    11 musicals, 2 plays, and 1 one act
    Chamber Singers 3 years
    Junior Class President
    a pre-college program
    Teen Court
    Drama Club 4 years
    National Honor Society
    Piano lessons for 11 years
    Voice lessons for 8 years
    Accapella group for 1 year
    and a few other little things

    As previously stated I'm 4/298 and have a GPA of 4.0 UW according to my school.

    Thanks for your help!

    What's your favorite thing about Vassar ?
  • jsykgrljsykgrl Posts: 22Registered User New Member
    Well I think my favorite aspect of Vassar College is that they allow for the student to choose his/her own path through their courses, and how involved the students are because of the small class sizes and organizations. It allows for every student to have a voice, which is just the kind of college I'm looking for. I also feel that Vassar does a terrific job of choosing students for the right reasons, not just from test scores (but I could be wrong).
  • CrystalJCrystalJ Posts: 503Registered User Member
    Ha, is that your why Vassar essay?
  • CrystalJCrystalJ Posts: 503Registered User Member
    Jw, it seemed like an essay-ish
  • jsykgrljsykgrl Posts: 22Registered User New Member
    haha no, but those are the points I'm going to write about. Why?
