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.
I chose WashU because of its challenging academics, its supportive community, and incredible student life! The coaching staff and team made me feel so welcome on my visit, and I knew the team would be a great fit for me! Thank you to Coach Shively, Coach Stevens, club coaches, high school coaches, teachers, teammates, counselors, friends, and family for supporting me in the college decision process! I can not wait for the next four years in St. Louis! GO BEARS!!
