What to you guys think

In which subjects did you earn “Bs” ?

Ap chem and ELA

You only applied to PEA? On the last day? And spent all of an hour on writing the essay?

I have no idea what your chances are… But PEA isn’t the only school out there, and might not even be a great school for you.

Did you consider applying to Cranbrook? Why or why not?

I did not know about BS till the last day

If M10 doesn’t work out for you, and you’re really interested in BS, start looking for schools that have “rolling admissions” - some schools are still taking applications.

Cranbrook, in Michigan, considers late applicants, space permitting.

Okay will do

I hope that you are admitted to PEA as you are well qualified academically.

Do not stress out over your essay. If you spent one hour on the essay, then it should flow well & reflect your voice. (I have no idea why some applicants spend weeks or months writing an essay.)
