The Dreamers College Essay Course: https://sleepdepriveddreamers.com/

Hey guys, since a lot of Early Decision (ED) and Restrictive Early Action (REA) results have been coming out this week, I thought I'd make a video to help those of you who were deferred. It's this weird grey space that I've personally been a part of and I can completely understand the sadness, frustration, or even plain confusion, that comes along with it.

In the video we talk about the additional steps you can take, from reaching out to your alumni interviewer, contacting current students, engaging with professors, and even sending an additional letter of recommendation. All of this will eventually form matter for your Letter of Continued Interest.

I have attached my Defer Update Form here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MTWFChJDDXlxYNIokaD--us6rvDZCuIXTPDyw7bxXQI/edit?usp=sharing

A few awards (for Indians as well as internationals) that I researched and applied for:

1. Pradhan Mantri Bal Shakti Puraskar (The President of India's award for student excellence) - https://nca-wcd.nic.in/

2. United Nations V Awards for volunteering - https://vawards.in/about-v-awards/

3. Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards - https://www.spiritofcommunityindia.com/

4. The Diana Award - https://diana-award.org.uk/

5. The Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders Award - https://www.wearefamilyfoundation.org/three-dot-dash-global-teen-leaders-2020

Hi! My name is Shaurya Sinha and I am a Gap Year Student from New Delhi, India, who will be studying at Stanford University next fall as a part of their class of 2025. This channel was made to share my information on the college application with the world, create inspiring videos and short films, and take all of you along with me as I grow and develop as an 18 year old :)
