Your host

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.

Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Shravya and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
1:03@Eashwar_SCK:I can hear and see fine :)
3:15@cubershz:I forgot to do the form—is there another one of these soon?
12:27@cubershz:For GPA, is it 10-12 or 9-12? Is it with or without PE?
21:52@Jordan8171:Some colleges require a mid year report for senior year when you apply early action right?
22:43@Derek:Hi I was wondering for example for MIT there is only 4 options for ECs, what do you think I should talk about on that
23:56@Jordan8171:Would it be better to wait to apply regular decision instead of early action to some schools in order to have more chances to beef up my SAT as well as my trimester grades?
31:12@BriannaM:You can also self study for ap tests :D
38:12@rk2001:Related question. Do you mention in the application if the internship is paid/unpaid?
39:47@anu22:Could you list other honor societies in the awards section?
40:29@rk2001:Does it look bad if you took lot of AP classes but did not submit AP scores?
52:33@Eashwar_SCK:I most likely will get a volunteer position at a hospital (probably in clerical position). If I get something around 30 hours, which EC would be the best to replace on the list (since we can only use ten slots)
54:20@Eashwar_SCK:Thanks! Yes, this was my profile :)
55:21@BriannaM:This is my profile! :) so excited
61:51@BriannaM:Sounds good thank you for the insight!
62:58@anonymous210:I’m from NYC, class of 2022, didn’t submit SAT, interested in business, marketing, education
83:37@Jordan8171:What day will you go over the rest?
84:27@anu22:Can I still submit a form for next week?
85:15@ashleyt:Hi Shravya! Just wanted to add onto my profile that you just reviewed:
85:50@ashleyt:and governor's school has a similar acceptance rate
85:52@ashleyt:does this make a major difference?
87:01@ashleyt:thank you so much!
91:28@anu22:thank you!
