Obviously the basics - work on getting good grades, good SAT scores, lots of volunteer hours.

In addition, get a really solid pastoral reference. One of my friends was talking about how he had a relatively weak application, compared to most Wheaton students, but he had a killer pastoral reference that he thought really helped him get in.

I was involved in many activities in high school, including the president of a few organizations.
I did many academic things as well, but I think the extracurricular activities helped a lot.

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."

It is important to Wheaton that you are continually striving to do the best you can, and are focused on learning. Work hard at the most competitive level your high school offers, but also make sure to round out your academics with other activities: sports, music, volunteering, etc. Actively knowing or searching for spirituality is important to Wheaton, and you will be expected to confront and articulate your experiences in your personal essay. I recommend visiting Wheaton and staying in a dorm for a night or two- most likely, your time there will be typical of a weeknight or even weekend (it pretty much all runs together here).
SAT: 2100 Female
