<p>Essays & Recs:</p>

<p>I wrote in my PS about how my mothers cancer affected my life. Im a good writer (I think) so Im pretty sure itll boost my app. For the second PS about a talent or whatever I wrote how guitar translates to math. It was actually not bad.
I have two really good recs from my calc and lit teachers.</p>

<p>BTW I'd appreciate more chances directed toward the mechanical engineering major. Not to sound arrogant but I know my chances at letters and science are high. THANKS!</p>

<p>I'd say like 85% chance to get in?</p>

<p>Chance me back?
