    @emli8100 @drowning2021 A lot of recycling essays. I wrote a lot of generic ones for "why this college" or "EC essay" and just substituted facts and names. As a result my essays were not that strong, but they got the job done.

    bless you

    I applied to all of them except Dartmouth, although I'm pretty sure my chances at Penn are shot because I kind of... forgot my interview.

    oops. but I didn't like UPenn much anyways.

    hyped for rejections!! start coming out this week!!

    Is there an article or something that says Ivy Day is the 30th?
  • emli8100emli8100 Registered User Posts: 202 Junior Member
    @woahitsdice Probably but I don't know a specific one. It is the 30th for sure though

    If my friend (who basically is the same person as me--we took similar classes and had similar EC's, but she has a slightly higher GPA and more EC accomplishments) got into Columbia ED, my chances are nil right? She applied to the engineering college and I applied to Columbia College for Biology. Sorry, I didn't mean to turn this into a chance me thread.

    i got berkeley early, so that's probably the school i'm going to if i don't get into an ivy or mit (or even if i get into one tbh since i'm in-state & engineering). i like the atmosphere/liberalism, but i'm not sure if the uber-competitive vibe fits me. (yikes @ the memes)

    @scarletwitchx Where you regents? and if so did you go to the overnight program?
  • pristinechrispristinechris Registered User Posts: 66 Junior Member
    @scarletwitchx, do you know how does the uber competitiveness manifests itself? I go to a laid back high school, not sure how to handle a cut throat atmosphere..

    I'm fully expecting rejections from all of my colleges, but I'm still both dreading and feeling excited for 30th March! (Joys of being an international...if all else fails I'm stuck in my country for another 4 years)

    International here, waiting for all 8 Ivy's + 14 more. But Ivy's are by far what I look forward to, had amazing interviews, selective Harvard one, and I love the United States wholeheartedly [spent a year in US HS]. Everyone keeps telling me I have a shot at each school, but it's so tough to call considering how selective all my choices are. March 30th will be the happiest moment of my life or the exact opposite, I'm so nervous for many months now waiting for all the decisions! Good luck to everyone! Hope to have some of you as classmates this Fall! :)
