    • Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Did not apply anywhere else. I was initially thinking about other liberal arts schools like Bowdoin, Swarthmore, and Wesleyan but I decided on Vassar after visiting these schools. I also looked at some big universities like Cornell, Michigan, and Berkeley but they seemed really impersonal and just not for me.
    General Comments: I can't wait to get to Vassar! I knew it was the perfect school when I visited it. There was a great vibe and no cutthroat atmosphere that I felt at the schools that I saw. I am so glad I did early decision because now I don't have to write all those supplements and can relax a little. Congrats to everyone that got in!

    [size=+2]Decision: Accepted[/size]

    • SAT I (breakdown): 2050--A bit lazy to look up breakdown
    • ACT: Did not take
    • SAT II: Biology- 730 Spanish- 780
    • Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0):4.0
    • Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): School does not rank
    • AP (place score in parenthesis): AP world (5) AP language (4) APUSH (4) Macro (5)
    • IB (place score in parenthesis): School does not offer IB
    • Senior Year Course Load: AP Bio, AP Calculus AB, AP Environmental Science, AP Literature, AP Spanish, AP Comparative Government

    • Summer Activities: Showing horses, summer job at a warehouse
    • Essays: I find writing to be a forte of mine. I believe my essays were well written and entertaining. My common app essay was kept as a sample by my AP Literature teacher at the end of junior year to use as a sample for her future classes. It told the story of how the breakdown of one of my father's racehorses influenced my choice to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.
    • Teacher Recommendation: I received my recommendations from my Explorations in Microbiology H teacher and my Critical Health Issues H teachers. I was very close to both teachers, an active participant in class, and both seemed more than enthusiastic to write letters for me. When doing an on-site admission for Stony Brook University, the woman told me I had "stellar recommendations." I'm sure they were great.
    • Counselor Rec: My guidance counselor and I are extremely close. She wrote me an absolutely amazing recommendation that I'm sure would sway most universities in my favor if they were on the fence about admitting me.
    • Additional Rec: Did not submit
    • Interview: Never interviewed
    • State (if domestic applicant): New York
    • Country (if international applicant):
    • School Type: Ward Melville High School- Large public school. Considered one of the best on Long Island. Very strong intel program and partnership with Stony Brook University.
    • Ethnicity: Hispanic

    • Income Bracket: (~$20,000) Very low income due to a recent divorce of my parents and my custodial parent having to return to work for the first time in many years. Non-custodial parent of a much higher income bracket (~100k)
    • Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): None
    [ b]Reflection[/b]
    • Strengths: Good SAT II grades, fluent in three languages, strong extracurriculars holding mostly leadership positions, rigorous course load and a strong background in community service.
    • Weaknesses: Weak SAT score, a little weaker in math than other classes.
    • Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: See strengths
    • Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: N/A
    General Comments: Looking forward to meeting the class of 2018!

    Very perplexing if all details are accurate--anglo male, from US? Letters of Recommendation not damaging? Was this Early Decision I? If not, perhaps admission committee thought you would choose another school Oxford, Cambridge, IVY?
  • elizabeaverelizabeaver Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
    Decision: Waitlisted

    • ACT: 33 composite. Highest scores: English (36), Reading (36), Science (35), Math (29)
    • SAT II: Literature (770), and US History (720)
    • Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): 3.94
    • AP (place score in parenthesis): World History (5), Language (4), US History (4), Chemistry (4), Statistics (4)
    • Senior Year Course Load: AP Psychology, AP Art History, AP Literature, Theatre 4, AP Music Theory, Math 1050/1060, AP Government (both US and Comparative), and Madrigals
    • Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis):
      Mainstage Productions at my high school - 3 years (have been in every single show and been leads in many of them)
      Drama Club Presidency - 2 years (Secretary, then President)
      Shakespeare Team - 3 years (we placed first my senior year at the Utah Shakespeare Competition in the most difficult division)
      Region/State Theatre Team - 3 years (my high school has been the reigning 5A State Champions in Theatre for two years now)
      Madrigals - 1 year (or Chamber Choir)
      A Cappella Choir - 1 year
      Lyrica - 1 year(Advanced Women's Choir)
      Other things I put on my application that I am probably forgetting
    • Job/Work Experience: Concessions at a theatre for about a year
    • Volunteer/Community service:
      National Charity League (Secretary) - 4 years
      Teen Aide at the University of Utah Youth Theatre Program - 3 years
    • Summer Activities:
      Teen Aide at the U, performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and recently traveled to Europe with the Utah Ambassadors of Music Choir (raised my own money)
    • Essays: My common app essay took a comical approach, and my Vassar essay was pretty weak considering that it wasn't one of my top choice schools, so I didn't have much to write about. Easily the weakest essay I wrote, but still fairly decent
    • Teacher Recommendation: Only read one of them (it was FANTASTIC), and I'm sure the other one was just as great
    • Counselor Rec: I go to a large public high school where the counselors have no idea who you are, so who knows? Hasn't affected my other schools so far.
    • State (if domestic applicant): Utah
    • School Type: Large public
    • Ethnicity: White
    • Gender: Female
    • Income Bracket: upper-middle class
    • Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): None, really.
    • Strengths: ECs, GPA, test scores, my CA essay
    • Weaknesses: My Vassar essay, nothing emotionally riveting in my essays
    • Why you think you were accepted/waitlisted/rejected: I really don't know. They could probably tell in my essay that I was pretty unenthusiastic about the school, but my numbers are good enough to get in. It's unlikely that I'll accept my spot on the waitlist, but we'll see :)
    • Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: I've been accepted to the University of Utah Honors College, Occidental, and UCLA. Still waiting to hear from UC Berkeley, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, NYU, and U Mich.
    General Comments: Vassar is a great school, but I don't think it's the right fit for me. It's the only school I applied to that I haven't visited, and there was a very slim chance of me going there - especially because Oxy gave me a huge scholarship and it's one of my top choice schools. Congratulations to all who got in! Again, it's a fantastic school, just maybe not for me :)

    Decision: Accepted

    [*] ACT: 35
    [*] SAT II:
    [*] Unweighted GPA: 4.0
    [*] Rank: 1, but my school had twenty valedictorians out of a class of about 360.
    [*] AP: 5 each on Chem, Bio, English Language, and APUSH.
    [*] Senior Year Course Load: Six APs and theater arts.
    [*] Major Awards: Eh. I won some small-fry essay contests and got second in TN with a bigger one. That got me published in The Tennessee Magazine, actually, but I forgot to put that on my application. Also National Merit Finalist, top 10 in Tennessee's Chem Olympiad, some other things.

    [*] Extracurriculars: Chess Club (three-time president), Sr. Beta Club (president), Spanish Club (president), Model UN (treasurer), Student Government (treasurer), National Honors Society (treasurer), plus five or six other clubs with various leadership positions.
    [*] Job/Work Experience: Unpaid internship as a radio talk show host for a month; that was really cool.
    [*] Volunteer/Community service: 240 hours with special needs kids, 140 with general ed kids, other eclectic stuff
    [*] Summer Activities: I did TN's Gov School one year; my other years I've volunteered with kids. Last summer I attended Boys State and toured Costa Rica, too.
    [*] Essays: CA essay was maybe my best piece ever; it was about skating with a blind girl. It really happened, plus I turned skating into a really excellent metaphor. My Vassar essay showed specific passion; I talked about the Vassar legend that squirrels are the lost souls of English majors who couldn't find jobs but that I wanted to be an English major and thought being a squirrel would be really cool.
    [*] Teacher Recommendation: Eh. Dunno. My Spanish teacher wrote one and my English teacher wrote the other. I haven't seen my Spanish teacher's essay but my English teacher let me peek at her first draft and it was pretty rough. I'd had them for two and three years, though, so they knew me well
    [*] Counselor Rec: Better than most, I think. My gifted coordinator wrote the rec, and that was super awesome because he works really closely with all of us in the enrichment program.

    [*] State: TN
    [*] School Type: Public
    [*] Ethnicity: White, non-Hispanic
    [*] Gender: Male
    [*] Income Bracket: Complicated, but not rich at all. I might get a tiny Pell Grant even.
    [*] Hooks: None.

    [*] Strengths: Test scores, leadership
    [*] Weaknesses: I could have done so much more, but I'm selectively lazy.
    [*] Why you think you were accepted: Really high stats for Vassar
    [*] Where else were you accepted/waitlisted/rejected: Accepted at Williams, Emory, Cornell, UPenn, Princeton. Rejected by Harvard and Yale, but Princeton was my top choice so I'm still thrilled.

    General Comments: Vassar is so beautiful and I really recommend that you visit if you can. I stayed in the Alumnae House across the street from campus and I ate at Julie's Restaurant; both were lovely and quaint and magical like Vassar. Although I am overjoyed by my acceptance to Princeton, turning down Vassar is hard.
