    my interview..
    I am sure that my extra curriculars and SAT and competetitveness of school make up for the mediocrity of my GPA... however, my interview was one that I will never forget. One stupid answer can break the interview, which sucks. However, I hope they saw my carelessness/bad joke as just that and not stupidity or immaturity.

    Still I would rather take it back and avoid the whole thing.. haha. definitely interview.

    I would change my school's coursebook to offer APs. Not that I care; I got in where I wanted. I just hope I'm not behind next year...

    Definitely grades/GPA/rank as well. I surely have slacked and not handed in important assignments, causing me to get Bs in a LOT of my AP classes. I'm talking Bs overall - Cs and even Ds in specific marking periods. Thankfully, the colleges didn't see that on my transcript. I'd get an A- one marking period, and a C- the next. I'm not kidding, that actually happened in more than one subject...

    It's not that I regret it, so much, but rather that I wish this were not shown on my application so much. It's certainly my weak point. Ah, I got into my first choice school early anyway, so all's well! (Wesleyan University)

    after taking the poll i changed my mind! originally, i put "SAT/ACT scores", but now i realize that i did my best. i would like to put "Not a thing!" because my test scores are very good, just not perfect. and, i kind of wish i had applied to a harder "reach" school. i applied to notre dame, but i think it would have been interesting to apply to an ivy league. oh well!
