It was about 10 hours a week.
<p>I've done a lot of work with my church. We have a youth choir that goes on a mission trip every year and sings for old people around the nation in retirement homes. Also, I do a lot of pro bono ACT and math tutoring at my school.</p>
<p>Writing (Write a brief description and Rate Quality on 1-10 Scale; 10 as Best):</p>
<pre><code>Essays (Include Subjects):
Activity Short Essay: 9 About me going to an Intensive Chinese program this summer. Short, to the point, and reflective
Essay 1 (Personal/Community essay): 8. Also my NMSF essay. Good topic It was about my 1st year at Ole Miss's Summer College, and how my roommate was from Mexico. I wrote about how that inspired me to look at the international angle of economics. However, there were comma splices EVERYWHERE when I looked at it last night.
Essay 2 (Different for each school): 9. SFS. I wrote about how the modern world as a whole was addicted to greed and debt. It had some clever analogies and was very reflective and representative of my goals, etc.
Teacher Recommendation #1: 7. AP Lang teacher. It was strong, but formulaic. She has a lot of kids ask her for recs, so she tends to use the same format.
Teacher Recommendation #2: n/a
Counselor Rec: Didn't see, considering this and some other results, I'm assuming it was a 10. Hahaha.
Additional Rec: n/a
Interview: ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I actually applied last year EA (ended up getting waitlisted RD) because of the whole exhausting my high school's course selection thing. I had the same interviewer. She told me I was the most qualified candidate she'd ever met and that she would write me the best recommendation possible. Considering our 2010 and 2011 valedictorians are currently at Georgetown, this meant a lot to me :)
