in this video, i give a breakdown of my college application to georgia tech as well as my general common app. i talk about my stats, essays, and extracurricular activities as well as give some important advice that i wish i knew before applying to college.
please note that i am not affiliated with the office of admissions and this is purely for educational purposes. also, i am only one out of the thousands of accepted applicants—this is just my story. i hope that this video can help guide you through the hectic college application process—it’s a super stressful time but i can assure you things will work out. though you may have your eye on a certain college, know that you can pretty much define your own college experience anywhere. nevertheless, good luck to those applying and let me know if you have any questions!
