Hi guys! Due to COVID-19 I graduated high school a year early, and am working full time in the field I want to go into. This means college isn’t exactly necessary for me, and the only way I can see myself committing to a school is if I get an extremely good merit offer.
That being said, chance me for the Coronat scholarship
Major: Dual in Computer Science and Philosophy
High School: Private for 2 years Public for 1
APs: 8 (wasn’t allowed to take many until I moved public), all with 3s or higher
ACT: 34 (35 STEM)
Rank: Top 5%
I currently work for two companies, one as a user support specialist (people send me their code and I help them troubleshoot it) and another as a user interface developer for a non-profit benefiting local teens affected by homelessness. Coolest job ever. Wrote an essay on it.

And a lot more smaller things here and there, it’s hard because I transferred as a sophomore to a different school, and there weren’t a lot of clubs that both schools had. I was able to interview with 'cuse, let them know they were my top pick for a school, and the interviewer and I got along super well. Thanks in advance for all of your support!
