 In addition to being an academic leader and ranked 2nd in his class, Eric had impressive letters of recommendation from his teachers:

 Eric’s AP Physics instructor wrote “Eric is an extremely gifted student who is not afraid to challenge himself. I have been consistently impressed with his innate ability to think scientifically and his high degree of natural intelligence. I highly recommend this brilliantly gifted, dedicated young man.”

 Eric’s AP Calculus and instructor writes “Efficiency is one of Eric’s strengths, which comes from excellent time management and planning. He recognizes that challenges and hard work build character and provide opportunities for learning and growth. Eric has exceptional leadership qualities and excels in all he does.”
