<p>No. 10char</p>

<p>If you hit at least 31 on your ACTs, most likely in/low reach, considering you wrote steller essays. </p>

<p>I'd like to see more ECs, however. (In terms of long term things.)</p>

<p>I'd say you have a decent shot. Good luck!</p>

<p>whats 10char? And will being Jewish help me or not?</p>

And will being Jewish help me or not?


No, being Jewish will not help you.</p>

<p>^ why not 10char</p>

<p>murd3r, do i have a decent shot with my current stats?</p>

<p>"^ why not 10char"</p>

<p>Because they don't care if you are jewish or not, because they are a catholic school, because being jewish doesn't make you any more capable, because they suspect your going to enroll at Brandies anyway.</p>

<p>sry i ment what is 10char</p>

<p>10char is a remembrance of a former CC user who committed suicide after being rejected to all schools applied. Pretty sad moment.</p>

<p>^ Whaaaat? Lol 10char is what you right when you're trying to get the "10" required "char"acters to leave a post.</p>

<p>[ sigh ]</p>

<p>They didn't have that rule before. But after that certain CCer died, they started to implement the rule to commemorate.</p>

<p>I just used 10char coal briquettes to cook my hot dogs. They were tasty.</p>

<p>It might help you if you effectively demonstrate how your ethnic background shaped your determination and academic success in your essay.</p>

<p>That's about it though considering that you don't belong to an under-represented ethnic minority.</p>

<p>should i even mention that im jewish,??? (my mom is jewish and my dad catholic) i go to church more than temple</p>

<p>Really wouldn't serve a point.</p>


<p>Unless being Jewish has put you in some sort of disadvantage in life (ex: discrimination, people making fun of you, etc) and that has changed your life or made you see life differently ... then that will help you. Being Jewish doesn't really signify much in college admissions. Unless you are a URM and Jewish, then you got something there. </p>

<p>Essentially, you can't just pin all your hopes of acceptance on just your being Jewish.</p>
