Are they needed to get in? I think I'm a fairly competitive applicant already (35 ACT, 4.0 GPA UW, good cluster of committed ECs, great recs, unique essay, ED applicant, etc.) and I'm just wondering how important these are to admission at WashU. Has anyone gotten in without them? Will they "make or break" you?
