On a scale from 1-10, probably an 8. My teachers were impressed and said they sound very passionate.
Circumstances: Have family problems. Talked to my counselor about them. Not too significant, but they're probably in my rec. I didn't talk about them in my app though.
I interview well but have not had a formal one yet.
Thanks so much! I really appreciate your input as you will guide what other schools I decide to apply to! I don't mind filling out more apps. Really, I actually enjoy writing the essays and I'm not paying the app fees
