One step closer

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.

    Why am I not surprised that you headed home with your head in the clouds? Oh yeah, it’s because you’re a pretty amazing guy who’s got his priorities straight, his life pretty much in order (as much as a teenager’s life can be in order), and isn’t afraid to reach out and grab the brass ring (there I go showing my age again ;-)).
    Congrats! And good luck on the quest for Stanford!
    Peace ❤

  2. I’m just now watching the Stanford Oregon game on my DVR — too bad Stanford boy!

    Seriously, Stanford’s a great school, one I was considering myself back in the day. (I decided to go to Whitman because it’s smaller and closer to home — I was a pretty shy gay boy back then). Good luck — although based on what you’ve written, I don’t think you’ll need it. 🙂

  3. Wow, I didn’t even mention the main reason for my response! Which was: I worked as a summer intern at my admission office, and in my experience, the alumni interviews carry a lot of weight. So if you think you did well, that’s a good sign.

    Are you planning continuing athletics in college?
