RD Admissions Committee

I am pretty sad to not be reading for committee anymore. Admissions committee has been a big part of my upperclassmen years here at Caltech…and especially this year. It makes me feel good to know that I have personally helped shape the classes of students that have come to Caltech in the past years, and in the year to come when I have graduated. I am so lucky to have been involved in this process, thanks for having me admissions committee 🙂
Anyway, I think I’m pretty much having a chill rest of the week after all this…I kinda need to recover. Not much homework….but finals are coming up soon!
