Wait Listed?

<p>Does anyone know whether it affects you to send in supplementary information in early March? I sent in an additional letter to both Carleton and Northwestern and was wait listed at both. It was a basic update letter from my debate coach to inform them that I had recently won the state Debate championship. I know that Northwestern is very competitive, but I wasn't really expecting to be wait listed.</p>

<p>So here's my deal:
State Champion in Debate
13 AP/IB Classes
3.94 UW gpa
State-Qualifier in Cross-Country
Varsity Track & Field, Distance, 3 years
400 + hours of community service
1920 SATs
710, 650, 610 SAT II's
Essays -- lauded by all who read them, including professional essayists</p>

<p>I don't want to sound arrogant or anything of that sort, but If someone like me didn't get admitted, just who did?</p>

<p>your SAT is lower than mine, as is your GPA, as is your community service, as is your extracurricular activities/leadership positions, as is your work experience. I was rejected also!?</p>
