Hey, rising senior in high school here. I’m new to this forum, so apologies if this is the wrong place to ask a question or two.
How much does VT value extracurriculars and the Ut Prosim essays as opposed to academic records? I have a few extracurriculars (mainly work, which is ~30h a week), but no leadership positions (besides from work). However, my academic work is quite impressive (or at least I like to think it is). Any thoughts on this?
Secondly, with the overflow of accepting students last year (2019), will class of 2021’s acceptance rate be lower or harder to get into? Additionally, the same can be asked considering many students might have taken a gap year due to COVID-19 (they would then be part of the Fall 2021 class).
Thanks for any help!
