I already have my personal statement done. I just want to take 2 or 3 days to get some insight from people.

    What are your scores and grades? Do people actually believe the counselors read 60k essays. Only if your application makes it to the holistic pile will it be read. Holitistic pile will include:

    ***Kids with lower scores and grades and then one or a combination of the following:

    Impoverished first generation College students
    Minorities - excluding Asians
    Kids with major hardships
    Kids with unique experiences
    Etc, etc.
