I am Manish Rathore from Jaipur,Rajasthan,India. I dont have good high school record. I just got 62% in my hs and may be its because that most of the time in my high school i was struggling with my own questions. I never liked to go to school instead i just self study at my home. I did not participate in any extracurricular activities ( i did not have many option though,just two science ollympiad and ntse) except my own independent research and The reason for repulsion from these contests was not only my inability to understand simple concepts (simple because my classmates understood without any problem) like infinity , why the laws are the way the are(like why square in inverse sqpare law instead of cube) etc but also my inablity to find their usefullness. I dont understand physics easily but i still love it. and actually it is the incomprehensibleness that i love most.I like theoretical and mathematical physics most. and thats where i wanna go. in past four years with physics and mathematics and music(2 years) and programming(2 years) , > i designed distance measuring appratus using similar triangles without knowing similar triangles ( actually i was unintentionally discovering similar trangles) > i redefined and extended many mathematical and physical concepts.( one research paper @ http://www.mediafire.com/?njkxzdzyoez [Broken]) > many imgainative and wierd ideas ( like i was trying to think why is universe infinite and i came with idea , since 1d infinte distance i.e. circle , 2d infinity sphere, 3d infinity our universe) > i composed many songs u can listen @ http://www.indabamusic.com/people/manishr Sometime i just think and think continously day and night ( even in my dreams) for days . Sometime i listen music experiment music passionately continiously for days. Some time watch movies and shows for whole day 24 hours. So what i mean to say is what i do, i do with full passion without thinking about what the people would think or consequences. If my high school performance is considered i dont deserve mit or caltech at all.But if my passion is considered i think i deserve more than my state university (rajasthan university most corrupted univ in the whole india) or some other like IIT univ or college where marks are prefer over interests. So thats me. What do u think will i be able to get admission in MIT or Caltech ? How much marks in SAT can get me there? u may lol now.
