[li] Gender: F[/li][/ul]Other Factors:
General Comments: glad to get waitlisted.. i thought i was gonna get rejected.. i have been having so many rejections lately.. cuz i think iam in the hardest pool imaginable
_ International, needs near full aid... only 3 or 5k contribution a year
_ i live in the states, so my ECs are compared to those stellar ones of US students. if i lived in VN my ECs would be considered awesome because there's no one doing anything there . but in here, my ECs are nothing.
_ i have a twin.. and they can't award 50k a year a couple of twins... especially with economic downturn... i got waitlisted at Bryn Mawr, Franklin and Marshall, and Colby- which aren't super hard schools.. because my twin also applied there.. but i got into Colgate and Oberlin with near full aid cuz my twin didn't apply.. we didnt factor the twin effect into the process.</p>
