Rank: 30/200 in a very competitive public high school in california.
Awards in math, science, and music-school, state, and national

By Potter on Wednesday, February 12, 2003 - 08:43 pm: Edit

800M, 800V
7502C, 800 Phys, 790 Writing
Rank: dunno, Top 1% I'm told
Mostly math and science extracurriculars, nothing too impressive
National Merit Finalist
Presidential Scholar candidate (stupid essays suck)
An irresponsible sense of humor. Somewhat lazy for an over-achiever, I realize, seeing all these nationally acclaimed pianists who also are Intel Finalists and published researchers.

750 M 800 V

800 Phys

800 US History
680 2C - I messed it up, what can I say...

EC - School television program
-Assisting with school's computers and technology.

Work - Page at local children's library
-Improv. performer at the New York Renaissance Faire

National Merit Finalist.

Many good recommendations.

Decent essay, I am within a few days sending another one that just tears up all other essays, along with another recommendation and the NMSC finalist letter just to make people stop telling me I should send it.

does being a girl really give u an edge? if so, does any one have any stats that compare SAT scores for boys and girls or acceptance rates for boys and girls and any other information showing quanitatively the edge being a girl gives u for MIT admissions?

Tim, what happened on your IIC? How did you get 680? That should've been an easy 750+ for you.

By Tim (Tim) on Thursday, February 13, 2003 - 12:54 am: Edit

1 - Tired. I am stricken with a dirty insomnia sometimes and am ruined for the next day, which led to a few mistakes... On the plus side, I'm used to getting by on 4 hours of sleep a night or less so that will help if I do get into MIT...

2 - I checked the sample questions and topics online to see if I had learned all the topics - but it turned out they put topics my class had skipped over (matrix math and a few other things) on the test but not on the sample questions or the list of topics online...

780 math, 680 verbal
750 iic, 720 physics, 690 writing

agent d's comment's are completely out of line. perfect math and physics, sci and math ec's, perfect math score on the SAT, and 1/120 rank go ther into MIT. "diana" deserved to go in, and even if gender preferential AA did help, she still deserves to get in.
