Predicted top 6 average: 92-93

I'm really stressed out. I have to get into this program. Can anyone give me some feedback and suggestions on what else I could do to pretty much secure my place next year?

Thank you so much! :cheese:

Be stressed no longer.

I am a welcome recipient of the 'gift' (or curse? for some!) that is AEO status.

I acquired this with a similar average (course selection? not relevant! [aside from english and one math credit of course]) and far fewer 'ECs'.

Of course, dear friend and reader, your application year is not the same as mine. You find yourself different against different competition than I, and may fare worse than yours truly.

Not to mention, your top six average is still a prediction. Unforseeable calamity lurks in all corners, and may prevent you from fulfilling your dreams.

Welcome the fact that you will either get in, or be rejected. There is no middle ground.

I do something similar as OP, such as doing eBay/online business where I sell stuff for 4 times the cost, made thousands from it. I sell through online sites, meet ups, etc. Would this count as entrepreneurial experience? I wasn't sure whether it was worth mentioning or not. Coz it was just smth I did to make extra cash

Should be easy, received AEO with similar base ECs. Try to bulk up on awards and you'll definitely make it.
