To be honest, I think a major reason IMar 17 2010Undecided
To be honest, I think a major reason I got in here were because of my essays, which were totally BS. My grades and SAT scores were pretty good. My writing was good, but I related my essays to God in ways which were totally untrue of my experience and character, yet the school still seemed to "buy it."
SAT: 1920 Male
