Upper Middle Class
Hooks: Brother goes to Brown (i don’t think that matters but…)
GPA: We don’t really do that and my school grades are very weird because of strict grading to prepare us for the finals and other things so idk…
APs: Calculus AB, CS-A, Physics 1, World History and US Gov & P (4 or 5 in all, all through self-study)
Class Rank: N/A
I’m applying as a film student but would like to study both film and CS if i get anywhere.
Various short films/videos/written scripts ; made a few 5-10 minute documentaries; made a short doc about my family and the city we grew up in
Created an app for exercises for people with cognitive difficulties and published a paper on it using data from trials and real-life testing.
Head of MUN Club ; various awards
Interned at a few companies, basically writing/creating video-based graphics/content
Podcast for 2+ years about football
Head of Media Club at school ; organized a live online event during Covid with over 5000+ views on YouTube
Going to probably do 1-2 more CS-based projects (idk what so far)
Since very few people from school apply abroad, we can work with our teachers/counselors to get amazing rec letters. (So 9.5/10, I guess)
I’m looking for a private (no public because no aid) school which gives decent/good
aid. A good film program which has some production-based elements to it (and not fully studies-based) and a good CS department.
Also very important that I can study both CS and film equally through interdepartmental majors (Like Duke), dual degree, double major etc. I don’t like schools like Purdue which assign you to majors.
Parents also want small class sizes but I’m indifferent to it. I don’t care about weather etc. and don’t want a big party/football school.
I’m also applying as film to most schools because I don’t have a good-enough portfolio for CS but I love both equally (maybe film a little more )
