    Accepted. Offered $27,000 per year Presidential Scholarship and invitation to Honors Program.

    Applied EA in mid-October, found out October 29.
    4.0 UW, about a 4.56 weighted (total of 11 AP classes and 14 honors classes)
    33 ACT (35 W, 34 R, 29 M, 35 S, 10 essay)
    I'm involved in a number of activities. I coach cheerleading, have a leadership position in NHS, and do a lot of community service. I've worked part-time since my freshman year and have been heavily involved in Science Club and various science competitions. Nothing major, but I had a lot of fun with everything I did!
    I've never visited campus, but have pretty much stalked it online (haha, I admit it). I wrote a Why Tulane essay that, admittedly, I think was very strong, especially for someone who's never been to the campus. My personal statement was about my job and everything that I've learned from it. Cliche topic, but I think it was rather humorous and I loved it. I emailed my admissions counselor several times back and forth over the summer and into fall, and I really think that helped me once I applied. I initially applied under SCEA but had to switch my app to EA, and I was really worried that would ruin my chances, but clearly it did not! If anyone is ever in that boat in the future: don't worry. It's not nearly as big of a deal as you think.

    I'm not really sure what they saw in me, but I'm so glad it worked out this way! There's a very good chance I will be in NOLA this time next year :)
