You've been told that colleges want well-rounded students who participate in sports, clubs, volunteering, and get good grades in honor classes. These were my achievements: Varsity soccer 3 yrs, Track state finalist, Cross Country state finalist twice, had a 3.9 GPA, board member of a volunteer club service for 3 years and was in 2 other clubs. That might sound dandy, but I almost didn't get the cut for college because my ACT/SAT scores were average (23). They might say they only take scores into account but that's a lie, it's the first thing they notice about you. So don't waste your time going all the way up to spanish 4 just to impress or any other ideas and focus on standardized tests, especially if you're a bad test-taker like me.

It's a relief to know that if every individual on earth jumped at once, it wouldn't really make any difference at all. What blows my mind is the fact that our entire species could fit inside Los Angelos, California if we stood shoulder to shoulder...seven billion people, that's astonishing!
