What is the typical day/routine like for an Ivy bound high schooler?

Just wondering

    Nobody knows they're "Ivy-bound" until partway through senior year, so I'd guess daily routine varies widely and doesn't have much to do with acceptance versus rejection.

    Probably the same (or similar) as any other college-bound kid in HS.

    Get up, go to school, work hard in school, do EC's, do homework, have more or less time for family or downtime or chatting with friends, depending on EC commitments/amount of homework/time management skills, get more or less a decent night's sleep depending on the same factors. Get up and do it again. Of course, this can vary with personal circumstances.

    Is there something in particular you’re trying to figure out?

    Since you are a high school sophomore your Ivy bound routine is way premature.

    If there was a template for.getting into a top tier college someone would be bottling and selling it. There is no typical -- be the best you possible and see how things turn out.
