(essay 12 has more style and voice, 9-11 are good, but less so)

1 excellent teacher rec (he knows me pretty well).. 1 teacher rec that SHOULD be good, but i dont know cause i dont get to see it or anything (doesn't know me outside of the classroom)
counselor rec... doesnt' knwo me perseonally, but 'm taking the most challagning courses offered by our school and i'm doing well in them, so from an acadmic counselor point of view, i'd think that he'd have nice things to say, but i dunno as i dtno get to see the rec.

so.. thoughts? comments? anyone else applying early? post your stats?
feel free to aim shemartypants to chat (the sn is an inside joke, not arrogance)
