<p>Recommendations: I have no idea, but I would guess it's good because I had been friends with the teacher for around 8 years now! Counselor: i think she knows me by my math abilities</p>

<p>Essays: common app: I wrote about my passion for math (it was about a problem I couldn't solve for 2 days, and I spent a whole notebook trying to get it, but to no avail)</p>

<p>WHY Upenn: ok i guess (i put a mathematical equation that demonstrates my love for penn ;)</p>

<p>day-to-day: i actually talked about the fact that whenever I am walking by or I am looking at things, I mathematically calculate distance, work, etc...</p>

<p>I just hope that I get accepted! I know there are other great universities other than upenn, but I want to get in here! =)</p>
