hey guys i am, like some of you, anxiously awaiting my regular decision. forget a career... i could be a professional mailman stalker. jk. anyways, i thought id do this just for fun.. if any of you have comments pleeasse post them - it would be so appreciated
so basically, here are my stats. im a white female from NY who goes to school in CT. my parents are seperated, and my dad went to Williams:
SAT II: Math II 800/Literature 760/Chem 730 :/
APs: Calc AB 4/Chem 4/English Somethingorother 5/Modern Euro 5
GPA: 3.9 UW
This year I'm taking the most rigorous course load with 5 APs and a completely full schedule.
umm my school doesnt do class rank but id say im in the top 10-12%. its a small private school in connecticut. (about 50 kids in my class).

Other Stuff: Spent this summer getting my EMT-B certification, have had a few steady jobs for work experience, French National Honor Society/Essay Contests/National Exam High Placements, National Merit Commended, Outstanding Citizenship Award, Excellence in the Sciences Award, Donald G. Schwartz Award (most heavily weighted award given out by my school to a junior)/lots of volunteer work at my church.
I also began a greeting card business in Sophomore Year to benefit a few charities and organizations. I successfully sent a club to Boston for a competition, raised several hundred dollars for my own school, and sent money towards aiding earthquake victims in Asia through Junior Year.
Essay: I really like it. It loosely likens the different parts of my journal to my skin/muscles/blood vessels/heart. I think it's unique and ties together my loves of journaling and biology (I hope to do Pre-Med and minor in a Slavic Studies/Russian program).
Teacher Recs: one I'm sure was stellar, the other at least really good. It's hard to tell - I didn't read them, but both teachers really like me and know
Counselor Rec: Again, I didn't read it, but I'm sure it was amazing.
I also submitted a comprehensive Art Portfolio for review which included everything from painting and figure drawing to samples of architecture floor plans. I mentor with a close friend who is an architect
ugh sorry...that was so long. one last thing. a boy from my school was admitted early decision, and he was a legacy. on paper, my stats look more impressive than his, but his admittance might change my chances, right?...if I have a chance at all. I was deferred from Yale REA and am sort of regretting not applying to Williams ED...no idea. so thats that.
so, yeah. thanks guys! and good luck to all of you!/Congrats to all who have already been admitted! LUCKYYYY.
