For those lucky individuals who already have their ED acceptances, what were your general stats (ACT/SAT, GPA, etc)?
It may be useful for those waiting for results :D or thinking of applying next year.

    [ *] Volunteer/Community Service: Hospital Volunteer (100 hours)
    [ *] Summer Activities: Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (Princeton, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, Roger Williams)
    [ *] Essays: Very good. Told about being raised by a single mother from Mexico and the abandonment of my abusive father. Also explained my jump in grades as I transferred from a large, predominantly all-white public school where I faced hardships to a very small well-known preparatory school after receiving a scholarship.
    [ *] Teacher Recommendations: English Teacher - Good. Spanish Teacher - Average
    [ *] Counselor Rec: Great

    Reflection:

    [ *] Strengths: Very strong subjective. I went from a 3.2 to a 3.96 W from my Freshman to Sophomore years. Very rigorous course load. Strong athletics and leadership.
    [ *] Weaknesses: GPA and my ACT. The highest composite I achieved was actually a 27 because I somehow bombed the reading test and did pretty well on the english.
    [ *] Why you think you were accepted/deferred/rejected: I think I fit the CMC stereotype pretty well. Admissions must have seen this in conjunction with the diversity I'll bring to campus.
    [ *] General Comments/Advice/Hindsight: I honestly didn't think I'd get in. It was hard to deduce my chances when seeing how I'm a strong subjective/weak objective applicant. I suppose CMC just didn't have very many students of color within their ED 2 pool.
