Siemens-Westinghouse Competition

<p>I posted this here because I don't think many people visit the Financial Aid section.</p>

<p>For all of you who know what the Siemens-Westinghouse Competition is, I was wondering, how prestigious is it to be ranked as a semi-finalist? Will it really help your chances at some of the top schools?</p>

<p>IMO, it's really prestigious. No, it is not going to outweigh lousy scores, grades, recs, or ECs. But if you have reasonable credentials and just need something to push you over into that accept pile, i think being a semi is great!</p>

<p>Congrats!</p>

<p>wow...only 2 people have heard of Siemens-Westinghouse on CC? Thats surprising...bump</p>

<p>it's prestigeous, and it helps. But if you're Ivy material, other parts of ur app should be so strong anyway that S-W semi should not be a huge part of ur app.</p>
