I worked really hard in high school - sports,Sep 19 2014Undecided
I worked really hard in high school - sports, clubs, volunteering - in addition to focusing on academics. I visited Grinnell twice. I would strongly recommend sitting in on a class and taking a campus tour as well as meeting with a current student, and if you can, doing an overnight.
ACT: 30 Female
I know we are currently looking for more diversityJul 27 2014Psychology
I know we are currently looking for more diversity in the political spectrum. Almost everyone here is liberal leaning and the President of the college said he is looking for more diversity of ideas (in this sense). If you are more conservative leaning, maybe say something hinting towards that in your essay or interview.
