Since application season is beginning, it wouldn’t hurt to get a thread started.
I’m currently debating on which school to apply early to. I know that a lot of people here have Harvard as a first choice; so, for anyone set on applying SCEA, here are some questions that could start up a discussion:
- Why are you applying to Harvard for SCEA?
- What draws you to Harvard?
- What makes Harvard stand out from other schools?
- Where else are you applying for RD?
- What are your qualifications?
- What are your summer plans?
- What is your intended major?
- What are your hobbies/interests/extracurriculars?
- What tips/advice do you have for applying?
Regardless of whether or not I end up applying to Harvard SCEA, I wish you all the very best in this paramount epoch of life known as the college application process. Good luck!
(And yes, I also started the application threads for Princeton and UChicago — it’s a way for me to gather information so that I can finalize on an EA school in the fall.)
