    @califrankie at least there's that :). And I'm lucky to have a great family who will support me.

    Use senior year to join the Kpop and anime clubs.
    Get a summer job when you graduate.
    Take this time to refocus (once you finish your essays).

    As a parent of a kid who did get into Stanford via REA, you will face similar choices even in college and in life. There are certain prices to pay for having certain goals. But it’s always good to question why you want to go to top colleges or do certain things. When you think about it, even the fact you attended a high school was not totally up to you. You seem like a thoughtful person.

    I understand the regret, because there are so many kids working so hard to be in this mystical "top tier" and they still don't get in to the Stanfords of the world. There are too many high quality students for that. Good luck to you OP. Your hard work will pay off in being prepared for college coursework, at least!
