I tried my best in all my academics in high school and showed off who I am as an individual. Of course I also practiced for my music school audition. My suggestion is just to try to be the best that you can be and just be yourself.

I put in a significant amount of effort onJan 22 2010Biology
I put in a significant amount of effort on my admission essay. I was honest and genuine which definitely helped. This was evident to those who read my letter. My involvement in multiple clubs/organizations as well as my involvement in sports also helped.
Prospective students should focus not only on their academics, but also the extracurriculars. Having a student who demonstrates the characteristics of a scholar-servant is desirable.
