I visited Elon earlier this month and I fell in love with it. Unfortunately, though, I'm not the ideal student. I'm absolutely terrified that I'm not good enough to get in. Please chance me/
Backround and info:
-will be applying for financial aid
-Intended major: History
-SAT: 1680 CR:550 W:670 M:460
(I will retake. This score was my first time taking the SAT)
-Essay will be good, I'm a decent writer.
-100+ hours volunteering at a Preschool
-Fund raising with my Church
-I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity
-I have a part time job. I work about 20-30 hours a week.
-I have played guitar for the last 6 years.
Also, I played softball for 8 years but I suffered from a debilitating shoulder injury one month before my freshman year started. Therefore, I was not able to participate in high school even though I intended to. I know that I should only be mentioning extracurricular activities that I completed while in high school, but do you think if I used the personal statement to let Elon know why I couldn't play they would consider me any more?
Thank you so much for any input. I truly appreciate it
