    Ah man I got waitlisted, probably because my efc is 0. I wasn’t really planning on goin there anyways. I had a 4.4 gpa (full ib) and a 1400 sat. It may have been my sat.

    waitlisted : /

    white/asian female from the northeast
    4.5 / 5 W GPA, top 5% class rank
    1530 sat
    5 AP classes (4s on exams), majority of my other classes were honors-level, and doing an independent study on mindfulness
    average ECs with some officer positions, and one study abroad trip
    good essay and really good LORs
    didn't visit or do an interview
    really low efc

    kinda disappointed, I did get into a better school in the northeast but the location of Reed is more attractive to me !
