I recently interviewed a high school senior from Livermore, CA (pop 83,000) for early decision admission to Dartmouth. In short, despite all the negative news we read every day, there is hope. This woman was amazing. A 4.25 GPA, fluent in French, passionate about a number of other subjects, plays soccer and basketball, etc.. She was confident, clear and a terrific communicator – in short, heads and shoulders above what I believe I was like at 18. I can only hope there are tens of thousands of other high school seniors out there like here applying to America’s best schools. If so, the future looks bright.
