Extra Curricular Information

Here are a few discoveries I made over the course of the past year.

1. In terms of timing, applying from August to November makes no difference. Trying to get everything out on day one might have even hurt, as my earliest applications were considerably less polished than my later ones.

2. My Yale application was aggressively targeted and customised. My essays and letters were unique, and I thought hard about how every component (resume, questions about extracurriculars) might contribute to my profile. I think it made a difference in that I was among the first of their acceptances.

3. Scholarship negotiations can work wonders. Chicago bumped me from 75K to the Rubenstein.

4. Harvard can do two interviews before decision. That threw me off guard.

Now that I'm done, I won't be frequenting this site anymore. You can contact me on TLS at the same username if you have any questions. Good luck, future applicants!
