EA Admissions Committee & my anniversary!

since it saved so much time and energy by knowing in early December of my senior year.

It has come full circle–4 years ago, the committee read my app and decided to admit me, and here I am reading for the new generation that will be here after I am gone. To those of you who are applying to Caltech this year and in the near future–I wish you the very best of luck during this process and really encourage you to put your best foot forward…(and to spell check)!
