<p>Assume that essays are in the upper-echelon--not to toot my own horn, as a few people seem to do here, but writing's my thing; my recommendations are coming from a counselor I'm quite close to, an English teacher that loved me to death (put me #1 on his "big board" for most likely to kill the AP test), and a Gov't teacher who thinks I could run for the White House one day (no kidding. love that man).</p>

<p>[already into Clemson EA, Miami OH EA, Fordham EA, SMU EA, Alabama (NMF full ride), Illinois (preferred)]</p>

<p>Thanks, yooo.</p>
