Academic excellence and a rising swimming & team! What else can you ask for :)
I chose Caltech because I want to study physics or some other science, and Caltech has amazing programs in all the sciences. I like the House system, the small size, and the many opportunities to do research as an undergraduate student as well. I will swim there, and I talked to someone on the swim team, who said that the swimmers are very kind and welcoming and generally had a good experience at Caltech.
