I was passionate about the activities that I did and I did a good amount of things. I worked hard and got to know my teachers well so that I could get good recommendations.

Everyone at CMU has some unique quirk about them; make that shine through and you have a very good shot.

(I'm a competitive jump roper that has been to 49 states...also very involved in high school)

CMU was by far the best school I got into, so off I went. Even though it was my sixth choice. I'd just come from a rigorous math and science magnet program, and CMU made it seem like clown school. As far as advice goes, I'm still surprised I got in here, so I can't really say much. Oh, Pittsburgh kids seem to have an easier time. But then again, some of the smartest people I know here are from Pittsburgh...

I send them my grades and wrote a decent essay, I guess. I was really excited to go, because I heard the school was one of the best. I turned down Brown and a few art schools, so I could study hard sciences at CMU.
SAT: 1420 Female
