I see a lot of talk about test scores, athletics, leadership, etc. as the ticket to admission. I spent a little time looking over the 'mailbox stalkers' from April, 2012. I could not believe the test scores, athletics and club participation/leadership of the candidates receiving TWE's. Many candidates had 32/700 on Math and English scores, max CFA scores, boy state, club president, varsity captains, etc. All of these candidates were off the chart ideal, yet TWE'd. Does anyone have any insight into how admissions pick their 'whole person' with accomplishments like these? Candidates with far lower test/academic scores get appointments while more scholastically qualified athletes and leaders head to plan B. I know it's a mystery really but where in the process does the whole person get identified? Is it just that 'something' that the BG officer sees (or doesn't see) and either gets written or not said? Combined with maybe NASS reports, teacher/guidance recs? Something somewhere sets these kids apart from the written profile. I'm fascinated with the process and where that separation occurs. BG's...is there "code" talk for that true SA type in your write ups?
