The team of Li Taibo (Tiger) is a prime example of a well-rounded candidate for an elite college. He ranked in the top 10 out of his 750-student class. He also plays badminton, soccer, heads the Model United Nations team, and was elected president of his 4,000-student school.
Tiger's project, which his partner Zhao Xinyue (right) helped present, was a mathematical study of adjusting the angles of windows in the room to maximize the amount of air flow into the room.
