First quarter grades senior year:
As in History, English, BC Calc, Spanish, Hebrew, Jewish Studies. A+ in Advanced Physics. A+ in my two music groups.

Recs will be fantastic from one teacher, very solid from the other. One supplemental rec from my music teacher, should be great as we have a very close/solid relationship and a mutual respect

Common App: Wrote about my old home and how it relates to music and why I love music (because of its ability to provide me w/ emotional catharsis and bc it humbly allows me to extend the same to others, give examples)
Supplemental Essay: Wrote about my exploration of the art of character!

Thanks so much! I recognize how irritating this thread is. I think I'm also aware of the fact that no one on here can provide any answers or *actual* chances. Yet here I am, an anxious applicant awaiting decisions in 11 days (as many of us on here are). I really appreciate your time. Thank you so, so much and have a lovely day!
