    Update - Accepted to Middlebury
  • HiToWaMomHiToWaMom Registered User Posts: 1,131 Senior Member
    Congratulations!! After a rejection and a couple of waitlists, you must be ecstatic!! Fingers crossed for more acceptances!!
  • hehaotimhehaotim Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    @HiToWaMom Thank you! It was some different kind of feeling, though. My teacher sort of made me apply to Middlebury and Vassar; I don't really want to go there. So, it has a very complicated, mixed impression on me and I am ever more anxious about the others. Assuming that or if asking for aid at JHU and Caltech cost me an acceptance or two, would it be a good idea to withdraw from my aid status and then express continued interest? @CC Admin

    I don't think it's a good idea. Withdraw from aid status means you can't afford school even if you get in from wait list. It doesn't make sense. Show continued interest but do not change the aid status.

    When all the decisions are in, choose from the schools you can afford. Be wise.

    I think youll get into all the LACs. i think youll also get into Dartmouth, Vandy, Caltech, cornell and penn. i think MIT and all of the other Ivys are 50-50 or a rejection. You have amazing stats and you will do great things!! Chance me back?

    With stats like those, you could probably get into any one of those schools. Are you applying early to any of these? Early admissions generally fill up half the spots. Also, a 33 on the ACT as an international student is very impressive. Good Luck!

    How in the world did you have enough time to qualify for two international science competitions? Regardless, you seem qualified enough for these schools. Again, the international pool is highly competitive. Also, which country are you from because that could make a difference and also I didnt know the UK Atomic Energy Authority gave fellowships to high schoolers.
  • hehaotimhehaotim Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    @WrathOfGod1999 I participated in only one international science olympiad, fell short of qualifying for two others. Took a gap year after senior year and that's when I got the fellowship at UKAEA and/through DIFFER connections and EuroFusion. Asian :/

  • HiToWaMomHiToWaMom Registered User Posts: 1,131 Senior Member
    Congrats!! Do you like Williams better than Middlebury?
  • hehaotimhehaotim Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    I love Williams! Most probably going to attend!
  • doorrealthedoorrealthe Registered User Posts: 292 Junior Member
    Congrats on Williams! Your profile looks great. It's just hard to accurately chance an international but I think you have great chances! Good luck
