Why you think you were rejected:
Okay after reading my stats you are probably thinking: how did you NOT get in? I found out that only 3 people ED Dartmouth at our school and the only one who got in was a girl who is a LGBT activist. She got 1400+, just couple APs total and nowhere near as many awards or activities as I have done. It seems that Dartmouth only gave our school 1 spot, and the spot was hers. In my opinion, all my stats are superior. It is clearly biased but that is just the way it is. That being said, she is pretty bright and definitely more competent than average students . Although this whole thing is not really fair, I am not going to completely blame this on the system. I could have done better to secure this spot and I shall prove myself in the upcoming regular decisions.
Where else were you rejected: None at this point.
