Study: Major in mechanical engineering
High School Experience
I went to a pretty academically competitive high school of about 450 students. Baseball was a really big part of my high school experience, but the engineering program was the highlight for me. There was amazing equipment and I got to travel abroad for an international engineering competition.
I took as many AP classes as I could and got all 4s and 5s. I really enjoyed physics and engineering classes.
SAT superscore: 1550
I played baseball all four years, I was in NHS, I was in an additional community service organization, in which I held a leadership role, and was part of two robotics teams: BEST Robotics freshman year and 4x4 in schools sophomore and junior years. I held a leadership position in 4x4.
I had great relationships with all of the people that wrote recommendation letters. I had traveled abroad with a mentor and teacher, and was one of the few students that the principal wrote a recommendation letter for.
I wrote about two themes, the first was inspiration, in which I wrote about an experience that opened my eyes to STEM, and the other essay was about my greatest failure, and how I grew from it.
My international competitions, great recommendation letters, and experience through an internship.
Never pass up an opportunity to explore your interests. Joining my first robotics team as a freshman even though it wasn’t cool was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
It was a reach school that I got in to, with an amazing atmosphere and program.
