    My essay is hard to summarize. I wrote about viewing the world 2-dimensionally, in black and white, weaving an analogy through with television. For the Tufts additional essay, I picked wich news story was ignored in 2005 and answered the decline of democratic rights in Russia.

    I agree and disagree with zoogies. I agree that you shouldn't be wasting your time looking at everyone's stats on this site because this site has the top applicants, the CC acceptance rate is much higher than the normal acceptance rate at these universities.

    However, I think it's essential to know what your chances are at schools, and where you can get in. You shouldn't be looking and researching schools out of your league.

    Congrats to you Bowser!

    Otherwise, this is a pretty depressing thread. Kids with major ECs, stats, recs, who didn't get in to HYP. I guess it's useful as a warning to find other schools you can love and that will love you.

    yeah that's very encouraging... it gives me no reason to complain about stats and stuff when you had to go through something like that...

    Zoogies, some of us like to see more than average test scores at schools. As a lot of us know, scores alone won't get you in and that's why we like seeing the whole package and forming our own conclusions..
