My dad went to UPenn and loved it and after visiting the campus before my freshman year, I loved it to. I am currently a junior, but now I am scared. I just got off of one of their virtual information sessions and now I am terrified of not even having a chance of getting in! I am taking challenging courses, I have a 3.9 gpa, I have an SAT score of 1490. I am involved in a few clubs, but no major leadership positions. All my sport is recreational and I don't really know the coaches that well. My community service impact and overall extracurriculars is low because I have to help my dad with his small shop and I have to watch my brother after school. My biggest fear is the letter of recommendation and UPenn's emphasis on IMPACT!! I want to impact the world in a big way, and because I have been hindered by social anxiety and family restrictions, I know now more than ever that I want to be civically engaged and impact my community in any way possible, but I haven't done so yet and that seems to be what they are looking for. I have dealt with social anxiety all my life and have only recently started therapy for it. Because of this, I have no close teacher relationships or mentor outside my direct family. My teachers know me as the student that does well but barely speaks. I don't know that this year will be much better because it is virtual. I am afraid that my lack of decent letter recommendation and lack of impact on my community will be my downfall. Tips, Suggestions, Advice?
