First off, congrats! Second, it’s scary in my shoes to write 2012 seeing my year is 2009…not even in double digits. As you decide whether to come to Cornell or Harvard (the former is the better choice), choose which meal plan to subscribe to ( my preference: 14 meals a week, $500 big red bucks), read all about the different housing options (Mews 1st floor!), decide whether to get a gym pass (the walking takes care of the freshman 15), and brag to your friends about where you’ll be spending the next 4 years of your life (or 5 for the architects) I am fretting about the next 4 years of my life, which classes to take as a senior, graduate programs to look into, how the heck the new just the facts works, etc. Enjoy your time in high school where school work is irrelevant. Your four years in college will be challenging, fun, and most of all, quick. It truly does fly by.
Congratulations again. And don’t forget, Hail all hail Cornell!
