Hey guys! This is Moy who's about to apply to Williams (ED) this year. Please help me chance it or just give me some suggestions. Thanks for your advice.
Basic information: Chinese. Need Financial Aid. Could afford around $20k per year. A Junior-transfer to a U.S. high school.
GPA: 4.12 (my school has a different scale than others. Seems GPA is not important to Williams at all.)
Rank: so far 6/106 (top 10%) but school will not provide rank since I am a transfer. Of 9th and 10th grade my rank is 20/1400, almost top 1%.
Senior courses: AP Cal BC, AP Econ, AP Stats. Physics II (Honor), English (Honor), U.S. Gov't, Religion as well as Computer Programming.
Tests: SAT: M800 CR690 W710 SAT II: M2 800 Physics 710 (need to retake?) AP: (just took in Feb) Cal AB, Physics 1, Physics C, CS. Not sure how many 5s, maybe a couple.
ECs: Student Gov't Vice President. Dean of Club Department. Founder and Leader of CS Club. School magazine and newspaper editor. 2 yr table tennis. 2 yr tennis team. 2 yr science club. Science Olympia.
Volunteer: ~60 hrs church and community.
No big awards.
Essay: pretty unique and special (at least I think).
Hook (I do not know if it is hook or not): First generation attending to a college.
Hopefully my essay can help me stand out. I am pretty confident about my deep thoughts (JK).
I know everything is just so average. That's the reason why I think ED could help (right?).
