High School Experience

My high school experience was very exciting to me. As my childhood was enclosed into just my neighborhood and not really exploring experiences outside, I gained a lot of knowledge on things I had no clue on and loved every moment of it. What I hated to see was to see how people’s true colors are and learn more about how the world works.


Course choices

My academic interests was football and testing my knowledge in math and science while trying to learn the most I can with computers to prepare myself for college.


AP/IBs

I took AP World History, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, and Calculus AB. I only took the WH and Chemistry exams and got 3 and 2 on them respectively.


GPA

4.1 weighted


Standardized Testing

SAT: 1280

ACT: 21


Extracurriculars

I only did sports, which included football, wrestling and the club sport rugby and I was captains in all of them.


Recommendations

My relationship was pretty much good with all my teachers, I felt like I knew a good bit of them personally.


Essays

I wrote anything that flowed within my mind. It was just expressing myself on the screen and hoping it’d work.


Strengths

What made me a good applicant was my football skill to be honest; it was the main reason so got in.


Advice

My advice is to be optimistic, try to experience things as much as you can, gain knowledge about things you’d never see yourself doing and take risks.


Circumstances

Underprivileged living situation


Why?

It’s location is amazing to me while being an amazing school academically. I truly believe I belong at a place like Brown.
