    Essays (rating 1-10, details): Common app (9/10 mostly for creativity) was about a time when my phone was stolen and how my true failure was yielding to my cynicism of the world; Activities section (not sure if it counts as an essay but i'd say 8/10) was about my volunteer work at the food pantry and how it has in part sparked my interest in studying economics and developing markets; UNC Supplement prompt #1 "For whom do you raise your voice?" (9/10) was about starting as one of the least talented members of the cross country team and eventually becoming captain in my senior year, and how I "raise my voice" for the newer members of the team that get little direction from the coach, but are stuck in the same position I was back then
    Recommendations (rating 1-10, details): Never saw any of the ones from school, but they all liked me and witnessed what I would consider to be some of my best academic work, so I hope they were good

    Weaknesses: AP scores, few Awards, Out of State
