I play squash and was the number one squash recruit for Wesleyan in the class of 2015. Wesleyan is very competitive, so I would advise students to have extracurriculars or to be good at a sport or play an instrument, etc. Something that will make you stand out, because from being at the school, everyone is smart and really deserves to be here. So you can't bank on getting in on just good grades and test scores.

If you are already looking at schools, it's probably too late to really up your work ethic and extra-curriculars, but make the best out of your last year and try to write a good personal statement. Interviews for wes are "highly recommended" but they don't really affect your decision, so don't sweat it if you can't make the trip.

Have a passion! Do something you love and be successful at it! Get good grades and take a difficult high school courseload.

I had a pretty solid cumulative, very high test scores, excellent teacher recommendations, and a very strong track record in leadership, activism, and volunteermanship.

I feel that Wesleyan looks for students that have done things most students have never thought about or cared to do. Wes looks for students who are passionate; be it art, social justice, politics, film, or literature. They want students who will bring a powerful and convincing background of interest to merge with the thousands of other students to create a melting pot of curious talents, hobbies, interests, and personalities. One of the things I appreciate most about Wes is the amazing diversity that you will certainly miss when you move onto the 'real world'. I can keep on going and going, but I'll simply end on the fact that I am now a very proud Wes alum that has already starting donating back to the school in appreciation for them helping me with a scholarship to the school and allowing me to have the wonderful experiences that have bolstered me in my post-graduate pursuits.
