This weekend I had an interview for my number one college. I met with an alumnus in a small coffee shop right by my house. She asked me about my education, about my interests, and about my activities. I think all of my responses, about my CDC internship and about my fight against my high school and about my intrinsic interest in science and especially about the blog, wowed her. After the interview, I drove home with a big smile on my face because I had just added another beneficial note to my application, and found myself one step closer to the next stage of my life and hopefully one step closer to Stanford.
