<p>My prompt 1 for the UC app was the same as my common app essay. It was not generic, and personally I believe its a good essay. In it, I elaborated on how overcoming my family problems have inspired me to put more effort into school/ECs/volunteering (I won't get too into this). I think it may be my hook. I've shown it so some peers and they also think it's good. My common app EC essay was not generic and good too and it elaborated on my passion for running; I took a unique approach on it. The academic interests essay was also well-written, I believe.</p>
<p>Schools I'm applying to:
UC Santa Barbara
UC San Diego
Duke (Superscores ACT)
Cornell (Superscores ACT)
Harvard (did not send SAT)</p>
<p>Please tell me which ones would be low reach/mid reach/high reach. I'd like to know which colleges you think I'd get into. The opinions of my fellow CCers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!</p>
