High School Experience
My high school experience was really stressful but it did come with its peaks. I did spend most of my time at the school especially my senior year due to EC. I actually liked the set schedule even though I wish we had more creative freedom in forming it.
I was definitely more interested in STEM based classes. Yes, I took a total of 11 & I’m waiting on 6 scores from the tests I took this year but I passed the previous tests.
National honor society for three years and my highest position was senior rep
Spanish national honor society for two years & my highest position was secretary
Renaissance leadership club for one year & I was just a member
Hispanic heritage club for three years & my highest position was secretary
Student council for two years & I was president
The teachers I asked for recommendations were some of my favorite teachers that I would really engage with on a daily basis.
Most of my essays revolves around breaking different barriers and my growth from those experiences.
I made sure my stats were in range & made sure that my essays would be interesting and could stand out. I tried my best to be personable and mature.
I would say to work on yourself as a person. Really focus on what traits you want & which ones don’t serve you any purpose.
I am a first generation low income minority.
I chose Columbia because it was my dream school with a prime location. I loved the curriculum that it offers and the global perspective that the institution pushes for.
