  • AlliasAllias Posts: 2Registered User New Member
    Ahhhh congrats everyone!

    [size=+2]Decision: Accepted[/size]

    Objective:
    • SAT I (breakdown): Reading: 720 Math: 770 Writing: 700
    • ACT: Didn't take
    • SAT II: Literature: 790 Math II: 770 US History: 720
    • Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0):Not sure about the 4.0 but unweighted out of 100 is 94.7
    • Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): School doesn't rank
    • AP (place score in parenthesis): US History (5) English Language (5) will take Psychology and AB Calculus this year
    • IB (place score in parenthesis): Don't have.
    • Senior Year Course Load: AP Psychology, AP AB Calculus, Government, Ceramics, Writers' Workshop (a creative writing course), Medical Diagnosis
    • Major Awards (USAMO, Intel etc.): Nothing major.
    • Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis): Dance ballet 20+ hours a week for virtually all of the year save some short breaks- danced seriously for ten years. No real leadership among a ballet level, but I'm the one people turn to for help with their schoolwork, choreography, schedules, advice, etc. I also do creative writing during my little free time.
    • Job/Work Experience: None.
    • Volunteer/Community service: Lack the time unfortunately.
    • Summer Activities: Dance. For the past five years I've attended a five-week ballet intensive away from home- three classes a day (roughly 4 and a half hours a day) for the weekdays with one class on Saturdays and optional classes at night during the week.
    • Essays: My commonapp used the content question and I spoke about my desk and how it's a place where I can go to write- create something of my own versus how in dance I'm always building your creation off of someone else's. Vassar's supplement- the extracurricular I spoke about was dance and I focused on a pre-show ritual of mine that basically explains why I love dance.
    • Teacher Recommendation: I think it was good? I didn't read them myself. My math teacher saved me last minute after my prior recommender could no longer write it due to severe health complications.
    • Counselor Rec: I think it was good too, didn't read it. My counselor liked me and he definitely loved the whole ballerina writer who's also a good student regardless of her lack of time picture.
    • Additional Rec: Didn't have one.
    • Interview: Due to the recommender situation I was unable to get one as my application ended up being submitted post-deadline. However, I believe the fact that my sister's an alumnus and I have her friends to draw from when it comes to learning about the school helped me in this case.
    Other
    • State (if domestic applicant): New York (Manhattan)
    • School Type: Public, one of the specialized ones in the city.
    • Ethnicity: Asian- half Chinese, half Japanese
    • Gender: Female
    • Income Bracket: Middle-class
    • Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): My sister is an alumnus, dance supplement
    Reflection
    • Strengths: Extracurricular because it showed a passion, my stats, the fact that I managed to not only just talk about dance even though it dominates my time, the dance supplement, legacy.
    • Weaknesses: I didn't take four years of language due to scheduling conflicts (I did add another document explaining why I did not take AP French though!), not having a strong leadership role, not being able to do the interview.
    • Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Oh gosh I don't know!
    • Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Nowhere! ED1!
    General Comments: I also went up two weeks ago to take a ballet class with their dance department. My sister left quite the legacy there- they loved her in the dance department. I'm probably going to resent her legacy soon enough, but for now it's seemed to have helped me at least a little. I don't want to be stuck under her shadow for the rest of my life but there was no denying how much I loved the college. That wasn't about to stop me from applying so I'll just have to forge my own path in the department. They gave me the warmest welcome though and the director said my dance supplement had gotten high marks and that he'd loved it.

    But I'm so excited, you guys seem like such cool people! Vassar class of 2018, here we come.

    [ b]Reflection[/b]
    • Strengths: I have a generally well-rounded profile.
    • Weaknesses: I did not take World Language Senior year due to schedule conflict. Also, I am quite apparently better at English/History/Foreign Language courses than I am at Math/Science.
    • Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Because my brother attends Vassar, I was able to visit and stay for longer periods of time and I visited a lot of classes and met professors. This made it much easier for me to write my Writing Supplement.
    • Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Rutgers University, University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing, Nowhere else because this was ED!
