Hi all, I applied early decision 1 at Trinity College (CT). As we get closer to decision day, I’m just a bit nervous. Would anyone care to chance me?
GPA (unweighted): 3.647/4.0
APs taken: AP Lit, AP Psych, AP Environmental, AP Research, AP Lang, AP US History, AP Macro, AP Gov, and AP Seminar (9 total)
SAT: did not submit.
School info: I go to a medium sized public high school in CT. The school is ranked fairly well in academics.
Extracurriculars: (submitted this in a resume)
- President and founder of Active Minds chapter at my school
- Vice president of current issues club at my school
- Treasurer of social studies honor society
- Link crew leader
- High school representative on townwide local prevention board
- Has done ballet for 14 years
- Very active in theatre both inside and outside of school
- Treasurer of Tri-M music honors society
I wrote my Common App essay about my years of ballet and feeling like I didn’t fit in due to my appearance. I thought it was pretty strong. I have also demonstrated extensive interest in the school. I was accepted and attended their fly-in (which I was told was more selective than the school itself), and have done around a dozen of online webinars they have hosted. I have had extensive communication with the financial aid department, have attended one-on-one zooms with students and alumni, and have met with my area’s admissions counselor one-on-one via Zoom as well. I have toured twice. My family’s EFC (from FAFSA) is 37k, as Trinity is not need-blind.
This is my very top school, hence why I applied ED 1. I am also applying to Connecticut College, Colgate, Colby, Fairfield, Holy Cross, Quinnipiac, Marist, Hobart/William Smith, and Wesleyan, if anyone would like to chance me for those as well.
Thank you so so much to anyone that comments! Sending good vibes
