<p>Essays: I wrote about my struggles with piano, how I came to gradually appreciate it. It was in a pretty unique style, but the subject may have been cliche. It was a hit or miss. May have sounded a bit weird.</p>

<p>Chance please!</p>

<p>As someone who did receive a likely letter: your standardized test scores are better than mine by far, so there's no need to worry about that. The only thing I noticed from your post is that your extracurriculars seem scattered - though they are all impressive, nothing particularly sticks out and holistically they don't seem to paint a picture. At this point, though, you've accomplished more than most high school students and done everything you can do to impress admissions officers. Good luck!</p>

<p>Chill out Tomdead, you are going to get into many schools, and possibly Dartmouth. Enjoy the moment and your senior year.</p>

<p>Hardly anyone gets likely letters. The vast, vast majority of admitted students don't.</p>

<p>what is a likely letter??</p>
