    Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): 3.67 (Rising Trend)
    Weighted GPA: 4.20 (Rising trend)
    Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): School does not rank or do percentiles.

    IB (place score in parenthesis): None
    Senior Year Course Load: AP Stats, AP Physics C E&M/M, AP Gov, AP Micro, Dual Enrollment CS course, Film Analysis, and Chamber Orchestra.
    Major Awards (USAMO, Intel etc.): AP Scholar with Distinction, Honorable Mention at a State Wide Chinese Speaking Competition (I have no Chinese background at all.)

    Subjective:

    Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis): Finance Club (Treasurer), Physics Club (Event Manager), CS club that taught coding for students between 2nd-10th grade (One of the founders), 4 years Tennis (9th 10th JV, 11th 12th Varsity), and 3 years Orchestra (Could not take my junior year due to scheduling conflicts).
    Job/Work Experience: No job.
    Volunteer/Community service: Volunteered to teach CS in my CS club throughout my Junior year summer, volunteered at a school and taught English to Chinese students new to the country.
    Summer Activities: Flew to China this summer and took care of pandas for 11 days. Much of volunteer work was done in summer.

    Additional Rec: None.

    Other

    State (if domestic applicant): CA
    Country (if international applicant):
    Intended major(s): Computer Science
    School Type: Public
    Ethnicity: White ( Middle Eastern)
    Gender: Male
    Income Bracket: Top
    Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): Not sure if being Arab was a hook.

    Reflection

    Strengths: Me being almost fluent Chinese, most of my EC's and courses were focused on coding, my teachers loved me and I think wrote great letters, and extremely heavy course load throughout high school. Not really sure if being Middle Eastern helped. I showed A LOT of demonstrated Interest (Visited Campus, info sessions, etc..).
    Weaknesses: Low GPA, Physics SAT II,
    Why you think you were accepted/deferred/rejected:
    I think my demonstrated interest helped because I was very eager to go to this school. I also think my devotion to CS was a realllllly big helper too. I wrote my supplement about my love for Chinese, so it coincided with my background in it (showed I was kinda diverse instead of just being focused on CS).

    General Comments:
    Genuinely surprised I got in honestly. I was scared my GPA would destroy me but it didn't. I'm really happy to be part of the WashU class of 2023. #GoBears!!!!!

    Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): 3.99
    Class Rank: 2/60

    Summer Activities: Act in community theater
    Essays:
    -Common App (9.5/10) Wrote about making paper airplanes with my grandpa who passed away. Made a connection to how I was impatient and my work turned out bad to how people should take time on things they work on/do
    -Supplemental (8/10) Wrote about how large businesses inspire my creative leadership skills because of how they start with just an idea and build upon it.
    Teacher Recommendation: (10/10) Wrote about how I have been in her classes all 4 years in high school, and how I’ve been one of the best students she’s had in her 30 years of teaching.
    Counselor Rec: (10/10)

    Interview: Didn’t have one

    State (if domestic applicant): Illinois

    -Comes from a school where no one has gone to a top 20 before

    Reflection

    Strengths:
    -If anything, definitely my extracurriculars. I have around 10 leadership roles.
    -Common App essay
    -Reccomendations
    -DEMONSTRATED INTEREST. I visited 3 times, emailed at least 4 people at WashU about different things. Had a student tour guide give me their email and I emailed them a lot. Called down a few times to admissions and financial aid.
    Weaknesses:
    -ACT: 32 is lower middle 50%
    -Supplemental essay was kind of bland I feel like
    -Lack of AP, Honors stuff, but I couldn’t help that.
    Why you think you were accepted/deferred/rejected:
    -Demonstrated interest: They really knew I wanted to go to WashU.
    -Common App Essay: I think (hope) that the admissions counselors enjoyed reading my essay, because it was close to me.
    -Extracurriculars: 10 leadership roles is a ton of work.
    General Comments:
    -To be honest; I didn’t think I was gonna get in, but with WashU, they want to make sure they accept people that are TRULY interested in going, hence the fact that they added the supplemental essay to make sure that people were actually working on the application, and not just used WashU as a safety school for higher ranked Ivies <Which is lame bc WashU is the best school out there lol

    I'm extremely late, but I'll post my results for Early Decision I.


    Pick one:
    Decision: Accepted


    Objective:

    SAT I (breakdown): 1550 (800 M / 750 RW)
    SAT II: Math II - 800, Physics - 770
    Unweighted GPA (out of 4.0): 3.92
    Weighted GPA (out of 5.0): 4.36 (no APs / Honors in freshman year)
    Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): No ranking
    AP (place score in parenthesis): Physics C Mechanics - 5, Calculus BC - 5, Chinese - 5, US History - 4, English Language (self study)- 4, Music Theory - 3
    Senior Year Course Load:

    AP Chemistry
    AP Statistics
    PLTW Principles of Engineering
    US Government / Economics
    Mythology and Folklore Writing
    PE Weight Training

    Major Awards (USAMO, Intel etc.): Ranked with in the top 300 table tennis players in the USA by USA Table Tennis, AP Scholar w/ Distinction, AP + PLTW Achievement in Engineering, medals at USA Nationals for table tennis and state competitions.

    Subjective:

    Extracurriculars (should be leadership, but I'll put years):

    1. Computer Hardware Tinkering, I build and tear down computers to build frankenstein gadgets and also do overclocking / undervolting on processors and GPUs + elementary-level Arduino (4+ years)
    2. Table Tennis (4+ years)
    3. Volunteer and Recreational Pianist, former competitive pianist (4+ years)
    4. Super random thing I put on my app: Flight / space simulator enthusiast (4+ years)

    Job/Work Experience: None

    Volunteer/Community service:

    1. Math tutor in my school's Academic Center (1.5+ years)
    2. Student Volunteer, Event Coordinator and table tennis teacher at a folk arts camp (1 week)
    3. Taught some computer hardware related stuff at an enrichment program (~3 weeks)

    Summer Activities:

    1. UC Berkeley EECS - Student Research Intern (Jun - Aug 2018)

    Essays: My points came across clearly, but I had some typos + awkward sentence structure. My supplement also went WAY over the suggested word limit (498 words vs 250-300 words). I tried to show and not tell as much as I could.

    Teacher Recommendation: AP Physics teacher. Nothing outstanding, but I was an active participant in the class and was (and still am!) interested in learning about the material outside of the classroom.

    Counselor Rec: Generic. I never talked to my counselor and she likely used a template

    Additional Rec: UC Berkeley professor mentor. My professor commended my initiative to do what I could to learn about and contribute to the project I worked on.

    Interview: None.

    Other:

    State (if domestic applicant): CA
    Country (if international applicant): N/A
    Intended major(s): Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or Biomedical Engineering (considering Pre-Med as well, but I'll see how first semester goes)
    School Type: Hyper-competitive Bay Area public high school known for grade deflation
    Ethnicity: Chinese / Asian
    Gender: Male
    Income Bracket: $100,000 - $150,000
    Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): None. Anti-hooks were: Asian male applying to engineering

    Reflection:

    Strengths: GPA + SAT + AP scores, extracurricular commitment.

    Weaknesses:
    1. I had essentially zero leadership positions and I did not start / create / lead / join any clubs in high school. I also have relatively little extracurriculars / interests.
    2. I planned my senior year schedule with rampant senioritis in mind, so the course rigor wasn't so great and definitely could have come across as me trying to slack off.

    Why you think you were accepted/deferred/rejected: I showed demonstrated interest; I visited campus over the summer, attended my school's information session hosted by the regional AO, and was on the mailing list. My academics also fell within WashU's range, at least for SAT scores

    General Comments: I 100% expected to get rejected from the school since my profile is less than stellar / superstar compared to the applicants I saw on the results only threads for past years. Consequently, getting accepted was "a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one." ;)

    Reflection

    Strengths: ECs
    Weaknesses: GPA
    Why you think you were accepted/deferred/rejected: My ECs

    General Comments: Everything is scaled. If you have great ECs, you can compensate for an ok GPA. My ACT score was basically average. I showed a lot of demonstrated interest. Also, I am a tri-varsity athlete and very involved with my school community.
