    @akdoxmi did you have to submit a resume of some sort? I'm pretty sure one was required last year but there's no mention of it this year. Also, is your app automatically submitted when your checklist is completed?

    @OsamaCare no, you don't have to submit an activities resume. It was required last year but not anymore. Your application is submitted as soon as you finish the main part of it and updates as you submit each part of it- they just wait to review it until you've finished your checklist.

    I definitely think essay is a deciding factor for whatever or not you get into this program. I have similar stats compare to people in this forum, but the only things is that I have trash essay. That’s probably the reason I was waitlisted.

    So for everyone who’s still applying, make sure you perfect your essay.

    Just submitted my application and all of my essays! i'm pretty sure I didn't get in since I take no APs, got a 1200 psat,a and am not a very strong writer, but I decided to give it a shot anyways. Wish me luck!!!

    I agree with @Lux0924, and time matters a lot too. The sooner your application is in, the better your chances.

    @Bing__Boy I thought this program doesn't accept minorities in CS. I'm an Asian male too and am not sure if it's worth applying right now

    @WhyamIhere123 Not sure... I just applied and I got in. I'm not sure I will be attending though. Also, what do you mean by "CS".

    @Bing__Boy Minorities in CS are like females and races other than asian and white i think. How do you think your essays/letters of rec were? I'd kill to attend this program so I'm just gonna apply even though being an asian male definitely does not help. Also I can't seem to find the due date for the application anywhere?

    The due date is February 15th but its based on rolling admissions so the faster you submit it, the better. It is not only for minorities and people from low incomes, but it can help if you are a minority and come from a low income. I think my essays were really good which probably helped me get in.
