*I kept a truly good relationship with my English and chemistry teachers as well as my Education USA advisor so I expect That recommendations are pretty good.
*my TOEFL score is already over their minimum requirements, and I dunno whether it makes any difference during the admission process but here it is
Total: 106 R:30 L:29 S:20 w:27
*The essays were reviewed by two reedies and they told me they were really good. In the common app essay, I wrote about my transformation from a naive conformist to a critical thinker especially in a religious community that hinders one's intellectual abilities; It may sound of cliche but It really means a lot to me and I really put a lot of effort into crafting it.
The paideia essay was about the flying spaghetti monster; a queer topic but I tried to strengthen my argument of how this lecture would be very sound and a good addition to the reed community.
*I'm only worried that the college is need-aware. see I'm from a country where one dollar equals the value of nearly 20 pounds: my max family contribution is no more than 5000$ per year so that's one against my odds I guess.
