    Hello. This is a thread for people who have already received class of 2021 appointments. What are your credentials? For example, SAT/ACT, GPA, extracurricular stuff, and anything that would contribute to your appointment.

    Class Rank: Top 10%
    6 AP Classes
    Track 3 years (Lettered all 3 in both seasons)
    2x world medalist in Irish dancing (yes, that is a sport)
