Nothing too crazy. Headed a social justice club in undergrad, worked for 3 years during undergrad with an org on campus dealing with conflict resolution. Did a summer semester in DC with a college, taking classes alongside a social justice internship in the city. Also did a brief nontraditional study abroad experience. Volunteer service for my local religious group, did an undergraduate thesis. Honors student. Other minor things here and there but thats about it.

Had terrific letters of recommendation.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

11/13/17 - sent out all apps with the exception of Yale. Intend to send it out this week.

*Note 1 - solicited merit-based fee waivers from any school that did not automatically give them to me through CRS except for HYS. Only Columbia and Chicago did not give me one.
*Note 2 - Duke priority track, should get decision within 10 days, though might be week after Thanksgiving since they take a break as well.
*Note 3 - Did not write any "Why X" essays, however I did write and submit one for Virginia around mid-January.
*Note 4 - Stanford originally did not mark my application complete upon believing there was another transcript I hadn't submitted. Resolved the issue a little later, but my completion date was delayed and thus much later than my other apps.
*Note 5 - Had issues with Northwestern and not receiving any of their emails. Had the issue sorted out around Jan. 21st, and they told me my application was received 11/16, and provided me the ability to check my app status and request an interview.
