Name: Naman Gour
==================================== As an 11th grader and an aspiring Computer Scientist, I knew that the #US was where I wanted to pursue my #undergraduate studies. The #education system was such that it would allow flexibility and provide the opportunities for me to excel. But to do so, I knew that I would have to work incredibly hard over the next 2 years to achieve my goals.
As I researched into the #applicationprocess, I realized that I would have to push myself to improve academically as well as in extracurricular activities to explore my interests. I involved myself in a wide array of activities, ranging from sports to online coding courses to music to debating, in an attempt to find my strengths in various fields. I juggled my #school work with my #SAT and #AP exam preparation to try and get the best scores in these tests.
When my #college list was finally ready, it had 15 colleges on it. For me, that only meant one thing – around 30-35 essays to write. Brainstorming ideas and representing them as best as possible took numerous drafts for each essay, but with invaluable inputs from my essay counsellor, I was able to put forward my best work.
Through all this, it was my counsellor who guided me and helped me project my best self in my #collegeapplications. I worked with a set timeline, balancing my school grades, my co-curricular activities and the standardized tests to derive the best results. Initially, each part of the college application process seemed like a monumental task in itself, but with guidance and support from my counsellor, I was able to best project my strengths on my application.
The constant support from #Collegify has ensured that I gave my best effort throughout this process. It is thanks to all the pushing and guidance that I now face the happy dilemma of deciding between my dream schools of #CarnegieMellonUniversity and #GeorgiaTech for a major in Computer Science.
