You are a good student and would be competitive for those schools but I do not give opinions on someone’s chances at a particular college. Selective colleges like those you list are all looking first at the grades you have and the classes you took to get those grades. They also look at your test scores but good grades and test scores alone will not get you into a selective college. They also consider your extracurricular activities, your personal background, volunteer activities, your essays and other factors. Selective colleges are looking not only for strong students but also interesting students that will make for an interesting class. This means different things for different colleges.
Hi, my question is general for an essay related to describing your favorite subject (. I’m not applying to any UCs). It actually is about Common App Essay Prompt 1 (interest, background). Do you think that writing about the subject is a good idea? I mean, they know (or suppose) I like it because of my grades, SAT scores, etc. Is it worth using the essay to explain them how much I love Physics or Math? Also, should I write about both Math and Physics or should I just focus on one? I ask about it because I really, really love them and I’m not sure which one of them to choose. Thank you.
