Jun 19 2012Architecture Perform well on standardized tests, take as many challenging (college level) courses in high school, either AP or IB courses as possible. Follow your passions, don't do extracurriculars to add to a resume, instead pursue in depth the thing you are really interested in. Middlebury would rather see that you are deeply involved with one cool thing than just slightly involved with many clubs. Play a sport! Almost everyone at Middlebury plays a sport.

Feb 29 2012Undecided It's not just about test scores, it's about who you are. You have to fit the MiddKid stereotype of being extremely smart, well rounded, athletic, artistic, lots of leadership experience and initiative, and concerned with global issues. You also need a striking, yet genuine personality, and be good looking too.
You can't just be another perfect applicant though. You need an edge that no one else has. Being unique is so important, as well as fitting into the perfect-mold.
Just kidding. You could probably get in without one of two of these, but it seems like everyone at Middlebury possess all those qualities! ACT: 31 SAT: 2090 Female
Feb 06 2011Unknown I had a college graduate write my Middlebury Fly-In Essay because I did not have strong writing skills & did not have the time or interest in the program. The same college graduate wrote my Middlebury College application because I had a 480 in English & basic English skills and not much interest in spending hours writing and rewriting application essays. I think cheating is fine to get into Middlebury College and am happy that I did because the college awarded me a four year scholarship and they are fine with me cheating because I am getting average grades, just like I did when I received my middle/high school scholarship. Excelling academically or having initiative is not my thing. I am glad I signed my name on the application stating I wrote the essays when I did not because I never really put much effort into anything. SAT: 480 Female
