Accepted Applicant Stats

<p>I figured since so many people were asking for chances I'd post what I applied with so people can compare. I got into the College of Arts and Sciences ED for the class of 2016 as a physics major. Feel free to post stats if you also got accepted for more cross referencing.</p>

<p>Sats:
Math: 700
Reading: 660</p>

<p>Sat II's:
Math II: 800
Physics: 720</p>

<p>GPA: 3.8/4</p>

<p>Rank: 9/273 (Not a horribly competitive school however my class really was.)</p>

<p>AP's:
Physics B: 5
Stats: 5
Calc AB, Lit, and Chem are pending</p>

<p>Rec's were both amazing from my physics teacher and my stats teacher.</p>

<p>Essays:
Common App: I wrote it about saving a kids life, this may have helped a lot.
Supplement: Wrote about my path towards physics throughout my life.
Overall I thought my essays were what got me in TBH.</p>

<p>EC's:
Swim captain
XC
Math Team
Band
Chorus
A lot of latin activities
A few other smaller things that I'm forgetting</p>

<p>Also I'm a white male and not first generation college student.</p>

<p>If you have any other questions let me know I'll be happy to help!</p>

<p>Theres a thread a few pages back with many posted decisions by members here for Accepted, rejected, And deferred. </p>

<p>But keep in mind that it's A boost to apply early decision and easier to get in that way.</p>
