I was valedictorian of my high school, I took 7 AP courses, had a 4.0 GPA, pretty good ACT score, eh SAT scores. Spent a lot of time on my common app essay that focused on how my background shaped my work ethic, my view on the world, my future aspirations.

Wesleyan University prizes students who are interdisciplinary and haveOct 20 2017Philosophy
Wesleyan University prizes students who are interdisciplinary and have the ability to write well. Even if you plan on declaring a STEM major, you'll probably end up taking some kind of writing-based course. Find ways to display you can write well in your application. Wesleyan also has a strong culture in service and passion. Indicating a genuine interest towards 'a cause' can show that you're establishing a strong 'fit' with the institution

Be sincere about your passions and communicate thisFeb 16 2014Psychology
Be sincere about your passions and communicate this. Be real. Have good grades. Don't be another straight-A robot with a formulaic personal statement. Arrange an alumni interview.
I play squash and was the number one squashDec 13 2011PreMed and Medical
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 probablyMar 20 2010Undecided
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.
