collegeconfidential: Sneeezy's question

Question: What got you into Caltech?

Answer: Aside from the "necessary" academic requirements (high standardized test scores, high GPA, good recommendations). I think what may have really showed the admissions people my passion for math and science was a 20-page write up I submitted from my summer research project at a national university neuroscience research lab. I also stuck to my nerdy/dorky/quirky voice in my personal statements. I made a campus visit prior to admissions and the lady working at admissions said she would make a note of that on my files. Those are just my opinions though, of course I never found out why they accepted me :)
