Mostly A’s: Rec Letter Go-Getter

You’re confident, outgoing, and not afraid to do as you please. A section kid at heart, you’re comfortable cold-emailing professors and raising your hand in lecture. We’d never admit it, but we envy your drive. You wake up at 5:30 a.m. each morning to meditate and you’ve already gotten your 2021 summer internship nailed down.

Mostly B’s: 2020 In a Person

It’s the day before your midterm and you’ve just emerged from your TikTok haze to realize that maybe you should have paid attention in at least one lecture this semester. Even though your peers might be exasperated by your barrage of questions, at least you’ll come out of it knowing that the mitochondria is indeed the powerhouse of the cell.

Mostly C’s: The Lurker

The classic video-off, mic-muted Zoomster. You’re a constant presence at office hours but no one ever really knows why you’re there. P-set answers? Crush on the TF? Entertainment while you’re cooking dinner? You’re a mystery and you prefer to keep it that way.

Mostly D’s: Just there for the P-set Answers

You’re the kind of person who has their calendar packed and has already prepared the four questions you’ll ask, shooting them off in rapid succession. On campus, you’re always power walking to your next destination, whether it be a club or section. Cups of black coffee barely hold your life together, but honestly, you’re thriving… or so you tell yourself.
