College visits...  
So, now I've visited two schools. I feel like I'm a little more knowledgeable about what I want and what's out there...

On Wednesday I visited Penn. It was pretty good, but the admissions people weren't going out of their way to give a good impression. They seemed kind of egotistical, which is probably to be expected from an Ivy League school.

Thursday I went shopping with Kit at the King of Prussia mall! :D I got two new shirts, and at the Sanrio store I found Hello Kitty gelt (chocolate money). XD

Then Thursday night I went to Bryn Mawr to stay with my friend Naomi, who is awesome and who I share a surprising number of interests with. I got a really good impression of the school from shadowing Naomi and then going to an info session and tour on Friday. It seemed like a really nice place to live.

Now I get to relax and enjoy the little bit of spring break I have left... When I'm not writing my junior research paper, of course.
Current Mood: goodgood

Yeah, Penn is really egotistical. The admissions woman who talked to us was really energetic, though! The campus is so active, though, and I liked that when I went. And my friend Emma's going to Bryn Mawr! She did an overnight and her dormmates started talking about how much they loved Newsies, and she was hooked.

Have super fun on the rest of your break!

Maybe you had the same woman, because our was super-energetic, too...in a kind of annoying way XD; But yeah, it did seem like there were a lot of activites and stuff.

i'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. bryn mawr would be a great fit for you, i think, but i'm probably not a very objective source. It's good to visit different types of schools (i.e. a big ivy in the city and a small liberal arts school in the suburbs). it will give you a better idea of what you generally want. good luck with the rest of the process!
