these days i was reallly worried about my essay. cause i know that mhc doesnt take the sandard tests as important as other colleges( thats a good news to me as i'm not a good test-taker:) i didnt brainstorm a lot for my EC. I just write what i really experience when i got really tired of the school stuff. i write about a discover which helps me to indentify what i like and what should i expect for myself. but i do feel it looks stupid and more like a physics experiment. i read some friends' essay(who already got in) and find my EC was almost rabbish! i was so distressed from then on. what's more, i didnt hear from the AOs after application. but recently, i went back to the forum and read all the posts. I suddenly know that I should just be myself( no matter how silly it may looks), and i truely love mhc. at least i'm much better than those try lucks on mhc.thats enough. so thx every one! i come to life again! whatever the results will be, i believe i will get into mhc one day( transfer & other ways, I'll try my best!) thanks Drsuyi, thanks rigor_col, thanks mandark8, Thanks everyone!
