<p>Reflection[ul]
[<em>] Strengths: Supplementary recs, SAT scores
[</em>] Weaknesses: GPA.
[li] Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: I really think it was less about the numbers for me, and more about my leadership potential. I spent most of high school, getting involved in my community without even realizing I could use all of that to help me get into college, so when the time came to "showoff" I had alot of information to put. Also my low GPA was on account of an illness I suffered with throughout high school, which left me with a lot of absences in school! However I used the common app and my recommendations to show how i overcame the illness.[/li][/ul]General Comments:</p>

<p>Has anyone been denied or waitlisted?</p>
