| | 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. Show that you really want to go to Middlebury. 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!
VERY difficult. It's really luck of the draw.
