After junior year, I figured, “If I got through the ACT, SAT, and all my AP exams, I can get through anything senior year throws at me -- piece of cake!” Truth is, I find that it’s a lot more complicated than it seems.
There are plenty of things I’m hoping to get out of this school year. I’m excited about senior year! When I looked at all the past seniors they looked like they’ve had so much fun and I want to experience all of that, too. That mini feeling of being the “Top of the School.” I’m scared because I know it’s my final year and I want to do extremely well but also enjoy myself. I want to accomplish having great grades in my regular classes and in the college classes I’m taking.

The U.S. Coast Guard is both the most humanitarian-focused branch of the U.S. Armed Forces and a great place to build practical skills toward future careers.
Sometimes I wake up, and I think, “Thank you God for blessing me to be here.”
I am so very happy to be a freshman at the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school located in West Philadelphia. Penn is such an amazing place. I am surrounded by so much intellectual vitality, wisdom and resources to help me change the world. I did not know I would be this happy here, but it has been a very pleasant surprise.
Reflecting back on my choice of college, I can’t help but consider how things would have been different if I had chosen a different school. To be honest, this is mostly for superficial reasons Ð after breaking my foot last winter, I have considered how much easier my freshman year would have been if I hadn’t been on crutches for the majority of my second semester!
However, there are other things I have considered: after seeing so many of my high school friends pledging sororities, I wonder what my life would have been like had I chosen a school with an active Greek life. Or post-visiting my good friend at school in New York City, I dream about my life at college in the middle of a big city.
All things considered though, I am happy with my choice to attend Georgetown. I think that it was the best choice for me at the time, and that it is a choice that will serve me well in years to come.
The most important factor in making my decision is, “Will I be happy?” I want to be happy with whatever I choose and wherever I go!
Profiles programs you may have never heard of but that could be big in the years to come.
