I actually found out about Emerson from a thread on this site, and when I looked into it further, found that Emerson caters to my passion (writing) and provides pretty much everything I have been searching for in a school. I was wondering if anyone has knowledge of or experience with the writing, literature, and publishing facet of the school. How is it? Any info from a student, alum, or parent would be appreciated.

Also- chance me please!

critical reading: 700
math: 610 :(

(will retake though, hopefully improve math)
- GPA 3.7 unweighted, top 5% class
- 5 Dual Credit (no AP's offered at my school) classes through junior and senior years, as well as numerous honors-designated courses as an underclassmen
- incredibly diverse background (moved 22 times, lived in 12 states, attended 16 schools total, Hurricane Katrina survivor, daughter of a vet, adversity, etc. etc.), which I plan to incorporate into my essay.
-EC's have been somewhat disjointed as per all of the moving, but I have tennis, volunteering, and (unfortunately brief) leadership positions such as creative writing club president (although maybe I can use the "short-lived" aspect to my advantage. Maybe they will think it notable that I managed to rise to such positions so quickly, and despite the discouragement of relocation?
-ASU Walter Cronkite School of journalism summer program
- three poems published in Teen Ink Magazine (national) as well as having articles published in the community newspaper
