    Essays (rating 1-10, details):
    COMMON APP: I'm really bad at considering my own essays because no matter how often I revise I won't ever think it's perfect but (8/10), used my love for Jeopardy! as a metaphor for my love of learning and my interest in a variety of subjects.
    Harvard Supplement: (7/10) I did the prompt about what I want to give back to my peers at Harvard; I read it a little while ago and I feel like it wasn't terrible but I think it could have been better; I talked about the importance of taking up learning opportunities wherever they may appear and about what specifically I wish to do at Harvard to give back to the community and to be engaged.

    Recommendations (rating 1-10, details):

    Teacher Rec #1 (rating 1-10, details): AP3 Teacher (10/10); I haven't read it but I know her really well and we had a really great connection; she also wrote a letter of recommendation for the girl who got into Harvard from my school last year; she knew me very well intellectually and read my CommonApp essay so I feel like she knew what foot I wanted to put forward.

    Teacher Rec #2 (rating 1-10, details): AP Biology Teacher (8/10); I haven't read this one either, but I believe she wrote a good letter; I had her my sophomore year of high school and I've been her assitant this year; we've talked a lot about random things and I think she knows my work ethic and my passion.

    Counselor Rec (rating 1-10, details): Two counselors (7/10); I haven't read this, but my school switched counselors last year so my new counselor and old counselor worked together to write mine (most counselors don't do that); my old counselor specfically said she wanted to make my rec 'glowing' so!!

    Additional Rec (if any) (rating 1-10, details): My Newspaper adviser, (8/10); he talked about what I was like in a class that I actually had a lot of passion for, and added a unique not necessarily academic perspective of me. My other additional rec was my karate Master (6/10); I give it that score because I think it was a good recommendation but I feel like it was more surface level than my other recs.

    Interview (if any) (rating 1-10, details): (8/10) I think it went well? I wouldn't say we became best friends but I think we had an interesting conversation and I think I was able to elucidate a lot of important things about myself, like how maybe I want to major in biology BUT I want to study so much more and learn so much more like I want to take language courses and writing, so I expressed that it wasn't like "I know exactly what I want to do" but I know what I want to study.

    Other:
    Applied for Financial Aid?: Yes
    Intended Major: Biological Sciences
    State (if domestic applicant): Illinois
    Country (if international applicant):
    School Type: Large Public
    Ethnicity: Indian
    Gender: Female
    Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): none :/

    I submitted two additional materials. I submitted one of the articles I've written for my school newspaper because I feel like it was a really good representation of my skills in writing and investigating. It was a pretty involved story. I also submitted an update about two weeks ago because I and a friend started an organization and there were new developments that I felt were important enought to warrant adding; we got a lot of attention in our district and town because we basically exposed my school for not following a state law and then we started like a movement to make the school follow it; we were featured in a lot of articles on local news and were on radio.

    Reflections: Wish my GPA was higher but there's not much I can do about that, I think I could have refined my supplemental essay more

    Strengths: I think my essays count as strengths because I feel like they really spoke to my interests and my personality more than things like my grades and scores. I also think that my recommendations were good because they

    Weaknesses: Relatively speaking, grades and GPA most likely were my greatest weakness combined with the fact that nothing else was particularly spectacular.

    Commonapp : (9/10) I feel like I snapped, connected my fear of public speaking to my job of doing the morning announcements, showing my dedication to helping my community and my ability to cope w fear

    Harvard Supplement: (7.5/10) Hard to say, I feel decent. I wrote about campfires with my ideologically different friends where we talked about politics, morality, etc. This showed how I could have complex conversations and deal w/ those close to me having different views.

    Recommendations (rating 1-10, details):

    Teacher Rec #1 (rating 1-10, details):
    (8/10) AP English teacher: she showed me the letter, it was pretty good and she talked about my intelligence and maturity throughout the year

    (7.5/10) Honors/AP Physics Teacher: we get along great but he’s kind of absent-minded so idk how good the LOR would be. Hopefully he did well which I’m sure it was good.

    Counselor Rec (rating 1-10, details):
    (7/10) I don’t know how well my counselor knew me and I feel as though she probably didn’t put in too much effort.

    (8/10) Make-A-Wish VP of Events: This was probably unique as she wrote about my success and commitment to the tournament and the charity so that’s pretty neat.

    Essays (rating 1-10, details):
    Common App: 7/10, put a good amount of work into it but could definitely see it coming off as cliche
    Harvard short responses: 7.5/10 for both, solid, not the best ever by any means
    Harvard Supplemental: 5/10, lackluster, should've worked harder on it, it was maybe three short paragraphs

    Recommendations (rating 1-10, details):

    Teacher Rec #1 (rating 1-10, details): 9/10, had him for three years, great bond. Son recently graduated from Harvard so I'm assuming he mentioned being a parent of a Harvard student/graduate
    Teacher Rec #2 (rating 1-10, details): 8/10, had her for two years, another very solid relationship. We've had many long discussions about politics, current events, and the world as a whole
    Counselor Rec (rating 1-10, details): 5/10, doesn't know me too well.
    Additional Rec (if any) (rating 1-10, details): 8/10, rec from Mayor of my city. We've known each other for a while now and he has seen me through my city's youth commission. We've also talked extensively about politics, current events, and the world as a whole as well.
    Interview (if any) (rating 1-10, details): Really not sure. We spoke for a little over an hour and had a great time just talking about, well, politics, current events, and the world as a whole. I don't think I ever had the opportunity to bring up my extracurriculars. We were too busy exchanging stories and laughing.

    Reflections:
    Work on those essays. Perfect them. Have a compelling story. Be charismatic and likable in the interview. Make sure to research your interviewer ahead of time. Get those test scores up.

    Strengths: Extracarriculars

    Weaknesses: My test scores SUCK. Well in the 25% for Harvard
    Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Lackluster essays, test scores
    Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: semi-finalist for Morehead-Cain scholarship at UNC Chapel Hill

    General Comments (if any):
    Make sure you have competitive test scores. Make sure you build relationships with teachers. Make sure you put 100% effort into your essays. At the end of the day, I was already more invested and interested in the Morehead-Cain scholarship at UNC and I think that showed through in my Harvard app.

    GOOD LUCK TO THOSE IN THE FUTURE!

    Recommendations (rating 1-10, details): 10/10

    Reflections: Attending Harvard has been a dream of mine since I was a 5 and to see it come true is just incredible. I'm in disbelief. I had good but not eye-popping grades so it really goes to show you that they care a lot more than just GPA and test scores.
    Strengths: Personal character, essays, extracurriculars, rec letters, interview.
    Weaknesses: Grades and test scores not as good as some others.
    Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Solid academic performer with commitment to a cause (racial justice) rather than just wanting to attend Harvard for the sake of attending Harvard.
    Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Pretty certain I'll be attending Harvard this fall, but will apply to Stanford and Yale just in case.

    General Comments (if any): Don't ever give up. Try to be a genuinely interesting person. Harvard is admitting a person, not a collection of stats, extracurriculars, and awards.

    Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): school doesn’t rank but ~ 10%
    AP (place score in parenthesis): 5 APs, didn’t submit any scores tho
    IB (place score in parenthesis):
    Senior Year Course Load: All AP classes. AP Micro, AP Macro, AP English Lit, APUSH, AP Calc
    Major Awards (USAMO, Intel etc.): None:(

    Subjective:
    Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis): Mock Trial(Captain), School Newspaper(Business Editor), Investment Team(Founder, Captain), Model Congress(Captain), Debate(A. Captain)
    Job/Work Experience: Tutor, Intern in the summer
    Volunteer/Community service: 2 organizations for special needs children (leadership role in one)
    Summer Activities:Intern, Summer Camp
    Essays (rating 1-10, details):
    Common App: 8/10 really good, true story about a really significant injury and how I bounced back
    Supplemental: 10/10 I honestly thought if anything would get me in, it would be the supplement. I wrote s/t really unique but I cannot elaborate as I will be using again on a different college app
    Recommendations (rating 1-10, details):

    Teacher Rec #1 (rating 1-10, details): 10/10 AP English past 2 years. She loved me, she was also my Mock Trial coach. She told me she wrote me an unbelievable rec
    Teacher Rec #2 (rating 1-10, details): 9/10
    AP Gov and AP Micro/AP Macro I had him for a lot of classes, we get along really well. He has a really high opinion of me and he knew I was applying to Harvard so he told me he would try extra hard. Not sure how good a writer he is tho :/
    Counselor Rec (rating 1-10, details): 5/10 Can’t imagine it was great. She doesn’t know too much about me
    Additional Rec (if any) (rating 1-10, details):
    Interview (if any) (rating 1-10, details): None

    Other:
    Applied for Financial Aid?: No
    Intended Major: Economics
    State (if domestic applicant): NY
    Country (if international applicant):
    School Type: Small, Jewish Day School
    Ethnicity: Jewish Caucasian
    Gender: Male
    Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): My mom likes to tell me I’m unique...so no, no really:/

    Reflections: I told everyone who was was supporting me not to get to excited because the most likely scenario was me getting deferred. Still, as much as I tried to convince myself, I truly believed I was going to get in. I don’t know what more I could’ve done (maybe higher GPA, also probably should’ve sent SAT 2) but honestly, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
    Strengths: ACT, Essays, Recs
    Weaknesses: No SAT 2, Maybe GPA, lack of a hook
    Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: I’m honestly not sure, but I’ll reflect on things I could’ve done better. My GPA is not bad, but it could’ve been better. My ACT didn’t leave much room for improvement+ I think they care more about composite anyway so... My extracurriculars were great, but... I didn’t win national awards. Ultimately, I think I was deferred because I did a lot of things pretty well, but I’m not unbelievable at one particular thing.
    Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Nowhere yet (I know, I know, great way to start of college letter season :’(

    General Comments (if any): I didn’t do anything unbelievable in High school. I did what normal high school students do and I did it very well. But they don’t look for normal high school students who do really well, they look for extraordinary people who happen to be high school students. I guess I shouldn’t have watched so much TV and should’ve worked on Socia Justice or s/t like that. Oh well

    Congrats to all those who were accepted. Please take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. I would kill to be in your spot right now, and just remember every day that you are there, how lucky you are to be at such a great school.
    Best of luck :)

    Essays (rating 1-10, details):

    CommonApp - 6.5 - wrote about a card game and how it impacted my viewpoint of school, nothing really standout or good here

    Roommate Supplement - 2 or 9 - this was a REALLY risky essay due to the intro and tone that I went with. This essay is either a solid 9 or 10, or a solid 1 or 2

    Recommendations (Rating: Outstanding = "best of my career / in many years"; Good = "best of this cohort"; Average; Below-average; Verification: verified = I have seen the rec; somewhat verified = s/he told me this is what s/he wrote, or his/her past rec got me into some internships; unverified = my hunch)
    Teacher Rec #1 (rating, verification, details):
    Average, verified, Science teacher and mock trial coach, he didn’t write any real superlatives and just did a lot of talk about character traits in and out of the classroom

    Teacher Rec #2 (rating, verification, details):
    Good, unverified, English teacher, he wrote a rec for a super competitive research opportunity at a T5 and I got into the final round, but he wrote it at the last minute

    Counselor Rec (rating, verification, details):
    Average, unverified, assistant principal, she also wrote it at the last minute and she usually doesn’t write rec letters, but we have a good relationship

    Additional Rec (if any) (rating, verification, details):
    Outstanding, verified, president & founder of the nonprofit I work at, REALLY professional, great anecdotal evidence, lots of superlatives

    Interview (if any) (rating 1-10, details):
    6 - had one pretty rough answer, otherwise good presentation on my end. Guy asked super generic questions and randomly asked me about the classes and professors I planned to learn from. I had good answers for them, but it clearly seemed like he didn’t care about the interview

    HARVARD-SPECIFIC QUESTIONS:
    On a scale of 1 (absolutely certain) to 5 (very likely to change),
    how definite do you consider your academic plans to be?: 3
    how definite do you consider your vocational plans to be?: 3
    how definite are your extracurricular and/or athletic interests?: 1

    Short Question (Elaboration of extracurriculars or work exp): 5, wrote about a murder case I worked on. Was super mediocre

    Short Question (Intellectual life): 6, Talked about the AP exams I’ve self-studied and the CS50 MOOC I was taking

    Long Question (Unusual circumstances / Travel, living or working exp / Roommate / Intellectual exp / Use of college edu / Books read / Honor Code / Contribution to lives of classmates / Gap year / Diversity: distinctive backgrd or personal dev): Roommate supplement, refer to the “essays” section for my score about it


    OTHER:
    Applied for Financial Aid?: Y
    Intended Major: Computer Science
    State (if domestic) / Country (if intl): IL
    School Type: Public (avg act right around 24)
    Ethnicity: Indian (oof)
    Gender: Male (oooof)
    Income Bracket: >200k (oooooof)
    Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): recruitable for mock trial i guess? Otherwise nothing


    RELECTIONS
    Strengths: Mock trial EC, strong ACT/SAT I score, strong W gpa

    Weaknesses: Physics SAT II score, low UW gpa, super risky roommate essay, demographic, likely weak letters of rec

    Why you think you were deferred: the GPA was probably the killer of my application since most of my Bs were from STEM classes. That, or the joke I made as my introduction did not make the AOs laugh

    Where else do you intend to apply: a bunch of other Ivies/T20s and a few publics that are good for CS. Harvard is still my #1 choice though.

    General Comments (if any): Don’t get cocky. Remember that ANYONE can get deferred, including you.
