Profiles of Admits to Wash U’s Class of 2022
Regular readers of our college admissions blog know that our favorite part about college press releases in which they tout the breakdown of their incoming classes is not the dry statistics but rather the profiles of individual admits. Over the years, many of our students have been featured in these very releases. A big part of Wash U’s press release for its Class of 2022 focuses on profiles. As the release reads, among admitted students to Wash U’s Class of 2022, there’s a nationally ranked archer, an opera singer, an Iowa legislative page, a Girl Scouts Young Woman of Distinction, a journalist published in “The New York Times,” a stand-up comedian, a top scholastic chess player in Washington, D.C., a semi-pro in Chinese yo-yo, a nationally ranked fencing referee, a Youth Volunteer of the Year, , a Gold Congressional Award recipient, a NASA intern, a National Youth Musician of the Year, an internationally ranked CrossFit competitor, a circus performer, a member of Team USA for synchronized skating, 102 Student body presidents, a ukulele player, an international professional snowboarder, multiple published researchers, a competitive figure skater, a certified florist, an encyclopedia contributor, several inventors and entrepreneurs, a screenplay writer, an award-winning actress, a second-degree black belt in Taekwondo, a first violin in Honor Orchestra of America, a beekeeper, and a novelist.
Note how many beekeepers find their way into these college press releases? Who knew there were so many beekeepers out there in the universe — especially with such a dearth of bees these days. Anyhow, congratulations to all students, including our students at Ivy Coach, who earned admission to Washington University in St. Louis’ Class of 2022!
