- Sometimes referred to as "over-represented", Asians tend to need higher scores in top colleges to be accepted. I am Asian, but I am from an under-represented South Asian country. Will Yale still think that I am "just another Asian" or that I am a URM? A mix?
- I got the highest score in the world on the Robotics Achievement Test once. It is at the Global Conference on Educational Robotics, where teams compete in Botball and KIPR competitions, and seminars are held with highly esteemed professors. However, only about 500 robotics students actually take the Robotics Achievement Test, but they are experienced robotics students from all over the world. How would Yale see this? Would it still be held at as high esteem as another international prize, or would it's lack of popularity affect that it is a global award?
- I want to help people around the world on a large scale. I have an idea on how to accomplish this: I want to be the CEO of a company that develops innovative solutions for tomorrow's problems. I feel so passionate about this that I have created a blueprint of how my company will function. Should I send this as my supplemental material, or should I just stick to sending a blueprint of an innovative technology that I have envisioned instead of a company that will make these technologies. If I sent the company one, would Yale see me as a buttkisser just wanting to improve my chances or someone with serious potential who wants to actually make a difference?
