Iím thinking ED at Brown.
I am a white jewish male
GPA: 3.75 U / 4.2 W
SATI: 1420 (720 V, 700 M)
SATII: 780 Writing, 680 US History, 780 Math IIC
No class rank, but my school is the #3 private school in the country (Harvard-Westlake School in North Hollywood, CA)
By the end of HS, 7 APs total.
Scores so far:
English Language-5; Calculus AB-5; US History-5
My classes this year:
AP Calculus C, AP Physics B, AP English Lit, Advanced Newspaper: Editors, Spanish 3 Honors, Fitness, Advanced Sculpture, Worldviews and Decisions: The Self and the Spirit, and AP Geography.
I am the Editor-In-Chief of my school newspaper which is (a) in the High School Newspaper Hall of Fame and (b) has twice been named the best high school newspaper in California in the past two years by two different organizations.
I personally have won two write-off competition (writing on the spot) awards at national journalism conferences and an article I wrote will be published in the upcoming issue of Columbia University's Student Press Review.
I am also the President of a community service organization called Youth Ending Hunger. We make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bake cookies, and cook pasta and meatballs for local homeless shelters then serve them the food.
My third (and final) EC is a program at my school called Peer Support (similar to peer counseling). I was selected to be part of the program (only a select amount of juniors and seniors are asked to be in the program) and I am a Peer Support Leader. I lead a weekly discussion with students (no faculty present) and just talk with them about life, school, and anything on their mind.
I have made Honor Roll freshman, sophomore, and junior years in high school and in freshman year I won an award for being the best freshman english student/writer.
umm... thats about it. this summer i did an outward bound course (for 22 days i mountaineered and kayaked in alaska. no showers, no shaving, no toilet paper... ie hardcore outdoors stuff, like ice climbing, glacier travel, 20-mile paddles in one day, etc.) this is what i plan on writing my essay about
and thats me.
will i get in to brown ?
and just for kicks, here are the other schools on my list if ED doesnt work out: Wesleyan, Amherst, middlebury, Dartmouth, Colby, Carleton, Oberlin, Lewis & clark
