Every year, as admissions get more and more competitive, the NYT and the major college newspapers start churning out articles about the vast numbers of ultra-high-scoring students who get rejected from top-tier colleges. I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering how this happens. How do the best colleges pick and choose among those who have the very best test scores and grades?

To answer this question, and to help future applicants develop a "theory of mind" about admission offices, I think it would be helpful to everyone if all the CCers who got 2400s on the SAT-I or 36s on the ACT would post their final results in this thread. Use the templates provided in decision threads, and please do speculate on what you think did or didn't set you apart from the crowd. What really makes the difference?
