    thats advantageous for you two =)...good luck to all!
  • JamiecagoJamiecago Registered User Posts: 460 Member
    @nkidd23: not really..I never thought Asian factor was advantageous for Bowdoin.

    But anyway, My hometown is brunswick so it will be nice to go back to where I used to live :) I left there when I was like..3

    Jamiecago, can you explain your "korean background?" It sounds interesting. Yeah, I don't think being Asian helps in getting accepted either. A couple of my Korean friends are applying to mostly LACs, but mostly, they tend to go for national universities.

    Nkidd23: I'm secretly hoping that what you've said is true!

    Nice to meet you all! :)

    im asian... I hope bowdoin uses fed ex. It will take ages to reach us otherwise !

    @ck1992: Both my parents are 100% korean. They hold only korean passports. On the contrary, I do not (American passport). I guess this makes me ethically korean and politically american. I've been to Korea several times, but most of the time Koreans label me as 'foreigner,' so I guess I don't tend to carry much of korean traits :)

    I just got an email. ACCEPTED !!!! :) they said they're sending the hardcopy of the acceptance letters by fed ex.
  • JamiecagoJamiecago Registered User Posts: 460 Member
    congrats, cr_freak! :D
  • ck1992ck1992 Registered User Posts: 157 Junior Member
    Congrats on your acceptance cr_freak! :)

    Jamiecago, I actually grew up in the States, and moved back to Korea a few years a go. What's weird is that my Korean got WORSE after I moved back. :P I hope we both get our mails soon! :)
  • JamiecagoJamiecago Registered User Posts: 460 Member
    @ck1992: that's amazing :) hope your korean improves in college...in BOWDOIN!
  • ck1992ck1992 Registered User Posts: 157 Junior Member
    Thanks Jamiecago! Bowdoin's a reach for me though. But I keep hoping!

    Hopefully I'll see you there! :)
