Essay: Personal essay was about rock climbing, everyone who I had read it thought it was great.
Recs: One should be excellent, the other should be very good. Guidance councilor rec is questionable, she's new and sort of overloaded.

Basically I'm really boring extracurricular wise but everything else is good.
