    Reflection
    • Strengths: My awards & extracurriculars were pretty strong, and showed extreme depth in two separate fields. I think this helped show that I was more than ready to handle rigorous computer science, but also had another strong interest I'd bring to the table. Solid test scores. I'm a strong writer so I think my essays must have been decent.
    • Weaknesses: Odd schooling background that's nonstandard for the UCs
    • Schools were you accepted/waitlisted to? this was my first acceptance
    • Schools you were rejected from? none yet
    • Schools you are waiting for? everywhere I applied
    General Comments: Sending love to future applicants, and go Bears!
