We are nearing the end of finals week for winter term. Only a few more days until SPRING BREAK!
In terms of finals, I have three presentations, two written reports and a one-hour final. Pretty chill, if you ask me…
I have pretty much finished up…and have already passed the biggest hurdle of finals week this Monday, when I had two presentations back to back (the first at 1:30pm and the next at 2:20pm). All I have now is the progress report on my thesis left….am thinking I might head to Starbucks tomorrow morning to finish it up in one sitting.
Here are a few pictures of my E102 group working through the night preparing our presentation we gave today…and a few of us presenting. We presented our work we have done this term coming up with a business model and proposal for our entrepreneurship class.
Sorry for such a short post…but I’ll be back later this week :)
What do you remember feeling when you found out you had been accepted to Caltech?
In short: I was completely shocked. Caltech had been my first-choice school for years (warm weather, great science, what’s not to love?). However, I didn’t ever think I’d get in: nobody had gotten in from my high school in the living memory of any teacher and my guidance counselor had told me point blank that it was a longshot.
It’s crazy to think that it has been four years now since I was applying to college. I remember it vividly. This week we’re spending some time reflecting on our personal admissions processes, and how we ended up at Caltech. There’s one question though that I wanted to spin out into a separate post: “what advice would you give to the admitted class of 2025?” And I think the best way to do this is to tell a more detailed story than I did in my other post.
