GAH, the dilemma. I'm debating between yale scea and the multiple early action route.
yale scea doesn't give me an advantage, i know, but i love yale and want to know early. thing is, with multiple early action to umich, tulane, etc. i know i can at least get into one of them and know i'm not going to live in a box down by the river next fall...whereas yale is probably going to defer me...or reject me. sigh.
SCHOLARSHIPS: with yale scea i can't apply for private school scholarships that are due december 1. (OR...CAN I? I'm actually quite fuzzy on this, yale just says you can't apply to other private schools with yale scea but doesn't mention scholarships. anyone know?)
i don't think i can improve my app much as of this point. i messed up my grade in one class 2nd semester last year but got a 4 on the AP test so i don't think yale will reject me just for that. (heh...i hope not)
as for hooks...can visual art count as a hook? i'm quite good at it and will submit a supplement. but being female and asian = anti hook!
oops I didn't mean for this to turn into a chance thread. any advice regarding yale scea vs. multiple early action? past students, any comments?
