Hello everyone. I would like your help in getting a general idea on what I should I expect when the decision email comes in. I haven't sent my application yet, so if you have any suggestion, please share it. So here we go.
Albanian student, 19 yo, applying to Williams as freshman because of curriculum troubles. I have cleared it with the Assistant Dean and she said that I only need to provide some kind of explanation for the two "empty" years. She said these kind of decisions were not uncommon.
SAT : 690 CR, 710 MA, 670 WR (unfortunately, superscored from two seatings.)
SAT II: 730 Math 1, 700 CHEM
HS GPA: 9.96/10 (Ranked 1st)
College GPA (first year): 9.9/10 (Ranked in top 1%)
*Leader of teen support group, 100 hrs +
*Activist on the Red Cross
*More than twenty hours of specialty specific, extracurricular medical seminars.
*Paid work as English and chemistry tutor for HS students
*Lyricist, experience is songwriting sessions
*Editor In chief of school's newspaper
*Musical blogger ion popular international website
*Coordinator of foreign languages week in my HS
*Data enterer in the digitalization of archives in my HS (The job was supposed to be done by computer science teachers, but because of lack of funds, they gave it to me)
*I have a two book publishing deal with a well known publishing house around here, the first book is out on November, and is in English, the second in April/May 2021
*I get enough examinations in my school, so I don't like competitions. Most of the time they just give you a paper. I couldn't add a lot more ECAs during college, because medical school was tough. I didn't have the time to do anything but the paying job, the support group, and the blog.
One recommendation from the college official, one from the HS director, two teachers, and I am thinking of sending one book review.
My family could help me with about 3k. I can obviously work, but that's as much as I can do. What are my chances if I apply ED? I am thinking of majoring in Chemistry or psychology with a concentration in either music or art history.
