Hi! Please chance me! I applied Northwestern Early Decision.

Female Asian at a mostly all white school of 2000 students.

SAT: 2160 (680 CR, 730 WR, 750 M)
SAT II: Math 2 750
ACT: 33

GPA: unweighted 3.94
Rank: N/A

Senior class load: AP Calc BC
AP Stats
AP Psychology
AP Lang and Comp
Honors physics
Spanish 4

I took 4 AP classes junior year but didn't send in my scores because they were less than spectacular.

Extracurriculars:
-team member at a restaurant. Works 18 hours a week. (10,11,12)
-ecology club. Secretary junior year. President senior year. (10,11,12)
-state youth orchestra (9,10,11,12)
-north american Envirothon. Placed second in state junior year. (10,11,12)
-had a 5 week internship at a bacteriology lab at a state university during the summer of junior year.
-math team. Places 4th in area sophomore year and 6th junior year. (10,11,12)
-organized a benefit recital for a local homeless shelter and raised over $400.
-pit orchestra concertmaster sophomore year.
-volunteer at a home for the developmentally disabled (9,10,11,12)
-Took part in a state music competition for piano and violin and won runner-up (9), and honorable mentions (10,11)

Essays: commonapp- okay. Talked about my rare eye condition and it's effect on me.
Supplement- okay. Talked about what I value in a university and how northwestern has just that.

Recs:
Counselor- ehh. He's new this year and hardly know anything about me.
Teacher- fantastic.

Other:
I visited the campus but didn't have an interview.

Income: About $60,000 (does this really matter in the admissions process?)

That's all I can think of for now. And please excuse any grammatical errors as I typed this out on my phone...

Also I'm a it worried because commonapp says that my supplement hasn't been downloaded yet. It says that my application has been downloaded but just says complete next to my supplement. Would Northwestern just reject me from my commonapp if they thought I was not up to par without reading my supplement?

Thanks!

    That is true; NU doesn't look at art supplement.

    Since she says,
    Supplement- okay. Talked about what I value in a university and how northwestern has just that.
    I'm guessing she's referring to the NU Supplement, not an art supplement.

    I don't think this is a cause for concern, but if you will sleep better knowning for sure, you might consider a call or an e-mail to the Office of Admissions.

    NU does NOT accept the Arts Supplement. They have a School of Music for those talented enough to be accepted by audition. Their music faculty doesn't have the time to review supplements sent by non-music majors.

    I think I must be having some sort of cognitive processing issue. I look and look and can't find in the original post where the OP uses the phrase "art supplement." Can anyone help me? :confused:

    OP is obviously referring to the Northwestern Supplement, you know, the supplement that contains the "Why Northwestern?" essay prompt.

    The thread starts with "Chance me please! And Supplemet not yet downloaded??"

    Guess....the word "And" was confused with the word "Art" ;-)

    I'm not having a cognitive processing issue at the moment. :) I was responding to the comment made by wunderchop, since I was actually sure of the answer.
