Hi everybody, I am a senior at a prestigious private Catholic high school in Orlando, Florida. I applied to CCNY through the Macaulay Honors program and I am REALLY nervous about getting in there. It is my number one school tied with Immaculata U(I already got into there and its honors program). My stats greatly surpass that of CCNY’s standard, but I really could use the connections, money, and housing I could get from Macaulay. I also am a top baseball prospect and would be on the team for either schools. I have been in frequent contact with the coach, zoom meetings with parents, text, calls, etc. and I LOVE what I hear. I plan to major in Business Management or Econ bc i have fallen in love with my econ course this year and obsess over everything finance now. Seeing that most applicants for Macaulay are engineering and pre med, I figured being a business major would up my chances( I dream of going on to wall street, maybe IB, PE or hedge). My stats are below:
1360(1370 superscore) SAT
Weighted 3.99( My school AP is worth 5, our valedictorian has a 4.52 for comparison)
6 APs(3this year)
104 service hours(baseball church and special needs related)
My two essays were pretty good i think, i rocked the first one about adversity and i think i did alright with the second speaking on modern political situations and how it relates to the business world
Any reassurance or criticism is appreciated, Thanks!
