    Concordia College-Moorhead with 30k scholarship and honors program (rolling)
    University of Alabama with 27.5k scholarship and honors program (rolling)
    University of North Dakota with 4k scholarship and honors program (rolling, my "in-state" public safety as it's cheaper than the UMN system with reciprocity and much easier to get into honors)

    Waitlisted: Case Western Reserve University (deferred EA, will not remain on waitlist)

    Denied: University of Notre Dame (RD) :(


    School: Rural public, competitive but sends most students to in-state publics or regional privates, ~300 per class
    Gender: Female
    State: Minnesota
    Race: White
    GPA: 3.89 (both when I applied EA and RD, didn't budge after 1st semester)
    WGPA: 4.03 (when I applied EA)/4.11 (when I applied RD)
    Rank: 26/307 (when I applied EA)/21/305 (when I applied RD, a couple dropped out to get married)
    Hooks: First generation on a technicality


    No SAT or SAT subject tests

    ACT Composite: 33/34 superscore
    English: 35
    Reading: 36
    Science: 35
    Math: 28

    ECs (as on my Common App):
    Varsity swim from 7th grade (our team was awful, has improved much but still not great, did not get captain bc of aforementioned district politics)
    Club swim from 4th grade
    Youth In Government from 9th grade (only Model Assembly, lots of leadership positions and quantifiable impact on delegation)
    Band from 5th grade (flute, auditioned into my school's "honors" band as a sophomore which is tough on a popular instrument like flute, did lots of optional Christmas, Memorial Day, pep band stuff)
    Tutoring middle schoolers 11th and 12th grade
    Trap shooting from 9th grade (state class champions in 2016, made varsity my junior year)
    German Honor Society/Delta Epsilon Phi from 12th grade (first year offered)
    Lifeguarding from summer before 11th grade (up for promotion to head lifeguard, can't get that job before age 18 unfortunately)
    Solo ensemble competitions from 10th grade
    TA'd middle school band

    Awards:
    National German Exam Gold award
    World Language Student of the Month
    Superior rated flute solo senior year, excellent ratings junior and sophomore
    A bunch of letters
    Some sort of state high school league academic award, pretty minor but it went on there since I'm so light in this section
    7th place in the 5k open water state swimming championships (actually included this under my club swimming slot in the EC section but I wanted it on my app because it's memorable)

    Major: I applied chemical engineering where available, otherwise general engineering or business with a probable German minor. Ultimately I think I will do a business major and may consider a German second major rather than a minor depending on how my DE credits transfer to W&L.

    Essays: Wrote the main Common App about some school district level politics involving swimming, how it affected me, and how I handled it. I didn't think it was that spectacular but I guess it made an impression on at least one adcom because I got a note about it in my Trinity admissions package. Probably a fairly unique topic.

    Supplemental essay for Villanova was about a favorite novel of mine, The Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages (HIGHLY recommend btw!!). I thought it was solid.

    I think my supplements for W&L were pretty good. Pro tip for writing your "Why X College" essay(s): check out their "About" page, it will illuminate what qualities they really want to see in prospective students. I also wrote about their Mock Convention and how it would be a fascinating learning experience for me because it'll be for the Democrats and I was raised in a very Republican area/family. I expanded on what exactly my leadership positions entailed for Youth In Government and I think that plus my Common App essay really showed the depth of my involvement and leadership in two of my main extracurriculars.

    Honestly, my Notre Dame supplements were solid except for one. I have a bit of history with the University since I was in their middle school pre-college program and did mention that, plus the great enthusiasm for the ND Family that their alumni have.

    Interviews: I really clicked with my alumni interviewer for W&L (a lot of overlapping interests with STEM, law, and business) . She told me she loves to recommend Minnesotan students who she thinks would be good fits, especially girls (she was among the first female students to attend), and she thought I would be perfect for the school. Honestly, I think we both sold each other on how great W&L would be for me and that interview made it a very close second choice to Notre Dame. My CWRU interview was fine, but not as strong. Frankly, I mostly applied because on paper it was a great academic fit and they sent me a fee waiver, but I wasn't super excited about the location in Cleveland. Also, I interviewed late because I didn't realize that interviews were recommended.

    Letters of Recommendation
    GC: Doesn't know much about me besides that I'm a top student and pretty active, probably a pretty generic but positive letter.
    Social Studies Teacher: Got to read this one, had a lot of grammar errors but was absolutely glowing. She's also my YIG advisor and I've known her through church for a long time.
    German Teacher: Didn't get to read but she probably adapted the one she wrote for a German scholarship competition which was pretty good, I've had her for all but one semester so I know her well too.

    Course Load (things get wonky here bc limited honors and AP):

    8th:
    Geometry- Pass (credit offered on pass/fail basis only)
    Writing 9- A-
    Classical Lit 9- A

    Dual Enrollment American National Government (none yet)
    Dual Enrollment History of Western Civilization (none yet)
    Dual Enrollment Intermediate German I and II (A)
    Wind Ensemble (A)

    Reflection: Ultimately, I think I've ended up where I'm meant to be since between the decisions and the financial aid my choices became W&L, Trinity, Concordia, Alabama, and North Dakota. Notre Dame was my first choice, but looking back I think I was blinded by my early experience with them and I think getting denied by them was for the best.

    I also just wanted to note a couple things I could've changed about my overall application list. I probably could have cut Rose-Hulman because I knew it was likely to be unaffordable and I wasn't as set on engineering after the first couple months of senior year but I was being recruited for swimming so I felt obligated to apply and figured I could switch to econ if the financial side was doable. I also might've tried to do a couple of SAT II tests (definitely German and something else, maybe Bio) and tried for a couple more reaches- Dartmouth came on my radar in November and I regretted not doing any SAT II tests.

    Accepted and so excited/scared!! and I don't have insanely crazy stats like a lot of the Ivy-League-accepted people here with 1600's sats so maybe I can inspire someone :)

    Accepted: Columbia, Harvard, Cornell, John Hopkins
    Rejected/waitlisted: Uchicago, Dartmouth

    School Type: public, 85% graduation rate
    Location: suburban ny
    Race/Gender: hispanic, female
    income: low
    Prospective Major: biology

    stats:
    Unweighted GPA: 97.5
    Weighted GPA: 101.3
    Class rank: 2/620
    sat: 1470 superscored
    act: 32/33 superscored
    ap's: 10 ap classes (calc bc, chem, lit, u.s., world, etc) and all the honors ones offered
    (but I didnt send in any ap test scores since most were 3's with two 4's.)

    Extracurriculars:
    vp of national honor society
    secretary of music honor society
    justice in a state govt program
    student council
    varsity cross county and track
    jazz band/musical/chamber orchestra/band for piano or violin(first chair)
    foreign language honor society

    extra:
    - recs: ap biology teacher, math teacher, orchestra teacher, guidance counselor. probably a little basic but still positive.
    - essay: a 7 or 8/10. had to do with music, described as "wordy" a few times, but had an interesting idea.
    - job: helping father's business
    - extra information: wrote abt family struggles bc separated parents
    - volunteering: a lot, but most came from the opportunities from the honor societies i'm in
    - supplements: unique for the most part. a lot of humor, so an honest reflection of my personality

    note:
    I think that some colleges realize that you have to deal with what you have, and with the fact that you don't have the ability to go far in a field when those opportunities that aren't really present. if you want to get into any good school just work hard, get involved, and defintely study for the sat's because you can get into so many more places with a 100 point difference, as ive seen with people in my grade. good luck to future applicants!

    Finally heard back from all my schools last night!

    Accepted: Oklahoma (w/the huge national merit package), George Washington (24k a year), UCSD, and UNC Chapel Hill
    Waitlisted: UC Berkeley and UVA
    Denied: Georgetown, the Columbia/Sciences Po dual BA program, UChicago, and Duke

    ACT: 36
    SAT: 1550
    GPA: 3.94 UW/ 4.15 Weighted
    Rank: 35/500

    APUSH(5), AP Bio(4), AP Calc AB(4), AP World (4)
    My senior year course load is AP US Gov, AP Comparative Gov, AP Macro, AP French, AP Stats, College English, College Physics, and Research Biotech 3.

    I'm also a National Merit Finalist.

    I go to a mid size public in Colorado.

    Essays: fine, discussed my bisexuality and activism

    Interviews: I did interviews for Chicago, duke, and Georgetown

    Extracurriculars:
    Amnesty International: I started the chapter at my school and am now a Student Activist Coordinator so I manage all the student groups in CO
    Model UN: Vice President and won many competitions
    French NHS, Science Olympiad, Bollywood Dance, GSA

    My intended major is International Affairs/Political Science.

    Note: I really think my weakest point/deciding factor in my rejections and waitlists was my GPA/class rank. I saw kids at school with similar backgrounds and extracurriculars and lower test scores, but higher class rank get in to schools that I didn't. I don't regret not taking an extra AP class or anything, because I truly enjoyed my high school years for the most part and didn't overextend myself too much. I guess the point is that a perfect score or National Merit doesn't actually mean much at a competitive school, despite what people might tell you.

    Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): White Jewish girl from NYC lol nooo hooks

    Reflection
    Strengths: Obviously really deep creative writing spike (international ECs + national awards), GPA, ACT, AP scores, probably essays/teacher recommendations
    Weaknesses: No hooks at all (my demographic is a dime a dozen), and little things (math/sci curriculum could’ve been harder -- no AP lab science/AP Calc BC; SAT II Math 2 was a little low)


    General Comments: I did what I loved to the highest degree. It took getting my acceptances to be able to look back at my four years of hard work and realize that I was more competitive than I let myself believe I was. Georgetown was the only school I truly would've considered that I didn't get into, honestly, and I'm overwhelmed with all these incredible offers

    General Comments/Reflection: The one big takeaway I gathered from the admissions process is that demonstrated interest really matters. The four schools that I was not accepted to are the four I never got around to visiting/interviewing for. I didn't apply early enough to get interviews, I didn't apply for the scholarship programs there, and I didn't reach out to any admissions officers. My advice to you all would be to really make sure you demonstrate interest to each of your schools because it counts! Overall I am very happy with how everything worked out and I feel so lucky to have been accepted to all my favorite schools. Best of luck to everyone who will be applying this year!
