Worried about my chances of being a QB finalist
I applied to the QuestBridge National College Match, and we find out tomorrow via email if we are finalists. I'm SO anxious/nervous/excited. Literally, I have had dreams about QB. That's how much this is driving me crazy. Anyway, since the chances of being a finalist are so slim, I'm worried. I'm not in the top ten of my class, nor do I have a perfect GPA. Far from it, actually: 3.5 uw/3.63 w. However, I have a solid ACT: 32. I think that's why I started getting mail from Harvard, Yale, etc. several months ago, which led to my discovery of QB. Knowing my statistical weaknesses, I wrote the best essays and short answers I possibly could, which I'm hoping will help because writing is my strength and my intended major. I had great recommendations, and my ECs are numerous and varied, and I hold leadership positions in several of them. On top of that, I'm a first generation student who was homeschooled for the first half of my life. I think those are pretty decent "hooks". Yet, I here I am, anxious out of my mind. Is anybody else freaking out over this, or I am alone?
