<p>• Summer Programs</p>

<p>o CTY Crytography JHU
o Summer@Brown- Genetics and Philosophy</p>

<p>• Other tid bits of information:</p>

<p>Most of my teachers like me and I have a strong relationship with my guidance counselor. I am a voracious reader and writer.</p>

<p>In my spare time I collect coins</p>

<p>I am interested in brains, philosophy, psychology, synthesizers, conspiracy theories, evolution, mystics, prophets, moralizers, crazy people, chimps, cafes, writing, the cosmos, films, dessert, reislings and riojas, a good toothpick, a nice fresh red pen, sincere friends, children their follies and unintentional honesty, sunshine, silliness from profundity, photography, audiobooks, running, a solid quote, zombies, infectious diseases, introspection, the mail, hedgehogs, finding my every limit, and I love analyzing Economic Behavior, trying to comprehend String Theory, Reading, people-watching, cognitive reverie, eBay, memorizing trivial pursuit cards, sky gazing, and getting the mail.</p>

<p>*One must remember, i go to a small catholic high school, where there are almost no ECs offered; I have done (and I'm doing) as much as I can with the opportunities presented.</p>

<p>So could I get in? I love how one comes out of the program with the knowledges to make things happen and make a difference in any career one chooses.</p>

<p>Just wondering...why did you take AP Calculus AB AND AP Calculus BC? They are like the same class with a few differences.</p>

<p>Also, you have a decent shot. M&T is the most exclusive program at Penn so no one is guaranteed and everyone has a slim chance. Show a lot of interest in your essays and if possible, apply early. If you can do those things, you'll have a decent shot.</p>

<p>Its a two-part class.</p>

<p>And I forgot to mention that I got a 102 AMC and 9 AIME.</p>

<p>lol, I like the list of all your interests; it's really cute. You seem like a pretty cool guy. Ha, I had originally intended to chance you, but I think that you have a better idea than I do. I don't see any faults with your stats besides the rank, but that's minor.</p>

<p>You seem so confident and mature...that goes a long way (especailly with a 2330 to back it up). So many people on CC are incredibly intelligent but are completely insecure about their personal identity. Way to go and good luck!</p>

<p>I just hope my confidence doesn't border on arrogance!
p<em>hp</em>fan, thanks so much! Thats quite nice of you, one doesn't see such acts often on CC, so in light on that, thanks!</p>

<p>I know my limits. My rank does not bother me, NJ schools are typically very cutthroat.</p>

<p>you did cty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>Yes! JHU.01.04 Essay and CAR.01.05 Crypto.</p>

<p>ahhh i love cty soooo much. i keep my car keys on my red lanyard from jhu s2 '05. i did service learning. two of my best friends are from that class, still three years later!!!</p>

<p>Any more takers?</p>

<p>Possible: Absolutely
Probably: No
Why?....You qualify academically, but nothing stands out with your ECs.</p>

<p>Your interests thing looks like my myspace and facebook "About Me" sections, haha</p>
