    @Publisher I'm a somewhat successful swing trader, but I didn't feel the need to mention it in my application. Now I'm feeling like I should've mentioned it...

    Depends upon how you present it. Okay if from a theoretical approach that yielded great results, but not so good if presentation suggests sophisticated gambling.

    With respect to OP, his brief resume on another thread presents a complete package that many schools seek: highly intelligent, rigorous course work, well traveled, athlete, leadership, public speaking & demonstrated success in an outside interest/endeavor.

    @Publisher I trade using formulas.

    I decided not to post my resume, as I believe it gives you a false sense of security or insecurity when people "chance" you. OP has very impressive stats. But like @ChoatieMom aforementioned, you can never be sure of anything.

    I agree, but that is the typical resume of our CC kids and hundreds of others they are competing against. Not everyone will get the news they want on M10. Often FA need, which is out of their control, will play a big part in their results.

    So kids, sit tight, post all you want on the Freak Out thread, and we’ll wait up and watch with you as we do every year while the results roll in on M10. Good luck to you all. :)

    I believe that OP is a full pay student.

    I agree that most applicants have very good to excellent resumes. Nevertheless, some stand out to particular readers & OP's stands out to me. Raises a few minor questions about specifics, however.

    @Publisher Real gambling is when you deal with cryptocurrency. I made a measly profit of 500 with 10 bucks. Got a whole lotta attention from the AO's during interviews.

    @snapchat I agree with you. What schools did you apply to?

    @snapchat did you apply to any of the schools I applied to (Taft, Loomis, Exeter, Choate, Lawrenceville, FVS)? We should definitely meet up if we end up going to the same school. Do you trade more on the fundamental or technical side?

    Sadly, I didn't apply to any of those schools. I trade technically for crypto because it's not attached to the economic cycle, per se. Crypto's price is dependent on the developers actions and the hype with that coin only.

    @snapchat Interesting point. I'm pretty hesitant on trading cryptos as I implement both, fundamental and technical strategies. Thus, making it very difficult for me to predict where crypto prices will go as they are solely based on hype (supply and demand) and actions/decisions instituted by obscure private individuals (most times). However, I'd love to get into it, if I figure out how cryptos actually function and react to a multitude of events. Best of luck to you and your trading!

    @snapchat Also, it's too bad we didn't apply to any of the same schools. Damn, I should've applied to Andover... I was hoping to find someone else, like me, that is interested and successful in the financial markets! However, I wish you the best of luck in your decisions and ultimately, the school that you decide to attend!

    @Cristian007 Guess that's how life works. Maybe we can meet up in the near future if it permits. Also, if you need some pointers to buy or sell said crypto, look at the whales (people who own a lot of the crypto) and see their moves. If they buy, buy and vice versa. You can use WalletInvestor too for prediction. Good luck on your admissions progress, judging by your attitude, you're going to go somewhere great!
