TinyBear's profile - Class of 2024
Took the last paper test in 2019, so my study tips are probably irrelevant now. Take as many practice tests as possible!
Applied to most T14 and my state school/undergrad, where I was offered full tuition (didn't include here for fear of doxxing).
Didn't apply to NYU because living in NYC was not my top choice. Didn't apply to Duke because I visited in person (pre-COVID) and it felt too country club-y. Also didn't apply to Cornell because the app asked "Why Cornell?" and I realized... not Cornell.
Wrote Standford playlist. Wrote a good handful of Why Xs for lower T14 schools.
Interviewed at Chicago, Kira for Northwestern, group interview at Georgetown. No interview at Columbia or Harvard.
Georegetown WL was "special group within the preferred waitlist"
Sent LOCI to UVA in March (I heard we were supposed to do this very late, so I don't expect it to have much influence. It clearly didn't help lol)
