Hey everyone! EE results just came out and I got a “possible”. I don’t really know how to interpret this information, so I decided to reach out to all of you!! Here are my stats:
Major: Political Science
SAT: 1430 (700 Reading, 730 math) - I know it’s not my strongest suit.
GPA: W: 4.1 UW: 3.87
APs: APUSH, AP GOV, AP Physics, AP Statistics, AP Calculus AB, AP Psychology, AP Environmental Science, AP English Literature & Composition
My Schedule this year: AP English Literature & Composition, AP Calculus AB, French 3 & 4, AP Psychology, AP Environmental Science, Chamber Singers (highest-level choir at school)
Thespians (my troupe is affiliated with the International Thespian Society; I am the Historian. I’ve been involved since I transferred to my current HS halfway through freshman year; contributed 500+ hours)
NHS (got inducted my first year of eligibility, Executive Board member)
I work at Meijer (local grocery store-I work full-time during the summer and 15 hours during the school year)
Kids’ Food Basket (a local organization that provides take-home dinners to undernourished/underprivileged children. I volunteer there multiple times a week. We just established a farm where we grow our own produce to serve in the dinners. I’m also a member of their Youth Action Leadership Board.)
Student Council (got elected my senior year)
GSA- I founded the GSA at my high school when I transferred there. I had to attend a lot of meetings with the principal and school board in order for it to get approved, but it was worth it. I live in the most statistically conservative county in Michigan and our GSA has been able to do a LOT to encourage tolerance and acceptance of LGBTQ+ individuals in our community.
Music-been in choir since freshman year, top level choir, playing piano for 10+ years
Voices- I co-wrote a play entitled “Voices” with my friend the summer before my sophomore year. It’s a series of monologues about the LGBTQ+ individuals in our community, and it was selected for performance at both the Michigan Thespian Festival and the International Thespian Festival.
Photography- I travel across North America photographing musicians in concert. I don’t have affiliations with any publications or websites, so I don’t have a press pass. My photos have been featured and used by some of the artists, including Alabama Shakes, Tegan and Sara, Post Malone, and Bishop Briggs. I wrote my Common App Essay about it.
Other opportunities: I attended a session of the Michigan House of Representatives with my local Representative, got to shadow her for a day
Demographic: white queer woman, legacies to UChicago (law school) and UMich (mother and two uncles)
Wellesley 100- I wrote about Hillary Rodham Clinton, whom I had met at the age of 11 through a performance with my choir. She inspired me to become a politician. I wrote about how I admired her strength and perseverance throughout her career. I also wrote about the Albright Institute and how it would benefit me. I also talked about Wellesley’s passion for liberal arts.
Colleges I’ve been accepted to so far: Umich Ann Arbor, Michigan State, Ohio State (full ride)
