How our Program Lead Jack Got into Cornell University
My name is Jack, and I come from Cornell University. I think there were several factors that really played a key role in my acceptance. I did have a strong academic background in both grades and test scores, but I definitely feel that there was more than that. I went to a performing arts high school, where I really was able to channel both my love of music as my major as well as develop leadership skills as a key officer in several school groups. I was also an active member in my local community choir and I volunteered at a local dog rescue center as well. In terms of my application, I had two recommenders who had been teachers of mine for years and who I had a personal connection with, and I really believe in the power of those letters that they wrote for me. I am a strong believer in a great holistic application, and I think that was super important for my acceptance!
