<p>essays: one written, my english teacher loved it. 2nd not yet written, not sure if i should write about, for "most meaningful activity" a.) church communityness or b.) photography (both my parents had to leave cuba quickly, so i have almost no pictures of either one as a child, so i take lots).</p>
<p>recs: Spanish Lit teacher, dept head. this one will be great, cause she insisted i let her write it. 2nd is from my stat teacher, which i think will be good, cause shes also the Student Gov. advisor, and im getting an A+ in her class.</p>
<p>Um, i think thats all. i should probably mention that I am hispanic, which could be a bit of help, but only cuban, which isnt as big a deal as mexican or puerto rican. My guidance counselor thinks i have a chance, albeit a very small chance. what are your honest thoughts? I realize its awfully belated, but do you have any last-minute suggestions? if you have any questions, things i forgot to mention, do let me know. thanks.</p>
