Heyo all! I’m honestly more curious then anything, now that all my applications are in. I applied to 11 schools: Brooks, Concord, Choate, Loomis Chaffee, Hotchkiss, Exeter, St. Mark’s, Andover, Groton, NMH, and Lawrence Academy.

My essays, to me, were good, but I know myself, and I suck at guessing how good my stuff is so I’m the least credible source. I’d like to think my recs said nice stuff about me but, again, can’t really tell.
I do think my biggest weakness is the lack of Fortnite wins, but if I send a taco to the AOs, that should make up for it.
Soooo… yeah? This stuff is fun, almost feels like a game.
