I will update everyone about what I have been up to. I applied to NYU, Vassar, Brown, Stanford and a couple of UCs. Right this second I am at the lobby of the Marriott at Poughkeepsie, NY. Very exciting! I was given the great opportunity to visit Vassar College and NYU and this is my first night. I am tired but really excited!
First we left the East Coast from Oakland and landed at JFK airport in New York. After that my mother and I took a bus to Penn Station, of course this was during rush hour and it was crazzzzzy (yes with that many "z's") ten times or even faster than San Francisco. Although everyone seemed to be minding there on business and walking pretty fast I didn't feel intimidated at all. I am surprised.
At Penn station we took the train to Poughkeepsie, NY, and my mother and I ate dinner.
I am excited and grateful for this chance, and I can't wait for tomorrow, I will be taking a tour of Vassar and afterwards I will be going back to New York City to see NYU. Well I am off to get some sleep, have to make a good impression, starting with being well rested.
By the way, It was sunny when I got to NY and not too cold. But Poughkeepsie is by far colder than New York City.
