<p>Possible Hooks
*writing is my main talent so I will be able to hopefully kick out some great essays (I've already written 1 for the UVA supplement)
*In the National Merit Scholar Program... will probably get commended but that's fine with me! (I hear in fall) - I sent this info to UVA and Kenyon College
*Will get great recommendations probably from my boss and some great teachers
*My scores on ACT, SAT, and PSAT are pretty consistent... 97th percentile
*Multinational and interesting extended family... may be good essay fodder haha</p>

<p>Seems like you should be a great fit for kenyon or uva. Good luck with your search.</p>

<p>Honestly, it doesn't look like you have any weaknesses. Do you have any other leadership roles in addition to editor in chief?</p>
