<p>2013er from Singapore here.. Why Oberlin? What do you want to do there? Because your stats are beyond awesome and so I guess what they'd be looking for is whether you'd be a "good fit" for the school. And I've looked at your other posts and it seems you're applying to a bunch of Ivies and other top-tier big schools, plus a couple of LACs. In your preferences, where does Oberlin stand among them? </p>

<p>And out of pure curiosity: are you from NUS High?</p>
