Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.

Whereas my fellow college students are enrolled in a few classes, I am also a full time high school student and member of multiple extracurricular activities. The odds of me producing quality work like my adult classmates while keeping up my grades in my other classes seemed pretty slim, but I decided I wasn’t going to let that stop me. I wasn’t going to be unsuccessful because a cut finger or because everyone else had more time than me. I was going to be successful because I put aside those insecure feelings of doubt, because I spent countless hours after school in the architecture building ensuring the quality of my work, and because architecture is my passion.
