This is the jist of my application without going into the exact specifics:
4.0 GPA Unweighted
9 AP's, so far 5 have been tested (all 5's). Three were self-studied
2310 SAT (770 CR, 770 M, 770 W)
800's in Math II and Chem
Direct legacy to Princeton. My Mom (alumna) and my family (me included) are very active at Princeton events, reunions and such.
Track Freshman and Sophomore year
Band Freshman and Sophomore year
School newspaper editor Junior and Senior years
Started my own business Junior year (quit track and band as a result) - this is what my essays and whole application is really based on
Am involved in many clubs, a few of which I started on my own
I applied as an engineer (which is considered easier) early action.
Again, without going too far into specifics, assume my essays are above average for Princeton applicants (but not necessarily spectacular). My recommendations are very good as I am friends with my teachers. My interview went extremely well.
Thanks! Very curious to hear what you have to say!
