<p>My D attends school in the same district as Samian. Taking her last SAT 2 tomorrow, so she couldn't apply EA/ED anywhere. She put the finishing touches on her RD app part 2 today, but has already had her interview. The interview went well, not quite two hours, very comfortable. D said her interviewer was awesome, but she was told the same thing ... not many applications from the Houston area. But, the way I look at it, 15 out of 150 is pretty close to the normal acceptance rate for an Ivy.</p>
URM/Hispanic/National Hispanic Scholar,
Rank could be better, but as Samian knows, ranking system stinks in our district, especially for AP kids and kids required to take unweighted on-levels for band, orchestra, cheer, etc..
ECs/achievement pretty strong including a couple of national level awards and state level awards plus recognition from TEA, TX State Board of Educ.</p>
<p>Brown has an exceptional biology/cognitive sciences program and she is hoping for the best. I think they need a bunch of Texans don't you?</p>
