I started this thread last year because I had a Junior and wanted to see the stats of kids that were admitted. Thought I would start a new one this year. So anyone who is applying ED OR EA, please tell a little about yourself and why you love CC.
My S has been intrigued by CC since he was a freshman. He thinks the block plan would be perfect for his learning style, which is finding a way to combine learning with nature. He wants to find a school that would embrace the balance between the two. Wants to major in ES and then go on to med school to be a wilderness ER Dr. He has 2190 test scores and roughly a 3.6 UW GPA. He goes to a top private prep that does not rank. He has many focused and committed EC's with a lot of leadership. Eagle Scout, numerous National Scouting leadership positions, 1500 hrs community service, mostly working on conservation, trails, and forestry all over the country, search and rescue team, first responser, rescue diver, spent a semester last year going to a prestigious boarding school on a rural organic farm in VT.
He will be visiting next week for their open house, will interview, do an overnite and class visits. I will post back next week for anyone that may have questions regarding that.
So,here is to the 2012 EA'ers and ED'ers... let's stay positive and supportive.
