    Class of 2015 wooot :) From Vancouver, BC ;) Honestly, I was a bit surprised that I got in because I thought MHC was waay above me. I guess they liked my extra curricular or something... Glad they did!

    Stats:
    SAT: 2150 (best score)
    GPA: 3.85 <-- rough estimate because we have a very different GPA system here in Vancity
    EC activites:
    Theater Company (4 years running) - actor, makeup department head, crew member
    Girls Rugby
    Debate Team
    Some volunteer stuff and other minor EC stuff
    Paid work (about 3 years)

    Oh and I also had a theater supplement with my Common App.. so maybe that helped a bit too... (?)

    Congratulations to everybody who are in! Hope to see y'all on campus!
