    Our daughter was rejected :(

    Our son is a plebe this year and encouraged our daughter, who is thinking of a math or engineering career, to apply for STEM. This weekend she received a rejection letter. She is a rising 8th grader and is currently enrolled in honors algebra (two years above grade level), honors science, honors English and honors social studies - with an A+ in each of them. She has participated in state level math and social studies invitationals. And she is an accomplished athlete (travel soccer and ice hockey) and musician (violin and piano). So I am not sure what the admissions department was looking for. The application itself was very simple, so I am wondering if under-represented geographic location (e.g., urban or rural areas) had more to do with being accepted than academic qualifications. I expect she will try again next year, but I am sure she will be a little more careful not to get her hopes up too high. Any advice would be appreciated.
