I'll admit it: I don't have a hook. I'm in the top of my class, president of NHS, have been working towards my Gold Award, etc., etc. But I have no hook. I am a Caucasian agnostic from New Hampshire; I like writing but I haven't published a novel or anything, really, and while I love academia and intellectual exploration I haven't done anything incredible or cured cancer or fed starving children in Africa.
Am I doomed? I lovelovelove Brown, and I stressed the whole intellectual curiosity and my other ECs, etc.--especially the fact that I practically grew up at my grandmother's farm, where we grow and can enough vegetables to get us through the winter. (And make our own maple syrup, but that's a bit random.) Assuming I'm average in terms of other applicants when it comes to grades and ECs, d'you think I have a chance, what with no super amazing hook?
