RESPONSIBILITY AND INDEPENDENCE
It has always been a dream of mine to go to an Ivy League school, and Dartmouth is the best Ivy because they focus on building community and continuing their long-standing traditions. This reminded me of my experience at Millbrook. I’m most excited about the freedom and independence I’m going to have and the ability to get things done on my own schedule. No one will be looking over my shoulder to make sure that I’m doing things the right way. This will be the first time where if something goes wrong or right it will be wholly because of my own decisions. Millbrook did a great job preparing me for college by putting the necessary restrictions on me from freshman year with an equal amount of responsibilities. After each year, the responsibilities grew, and restrictions lessened. Now in college it is the same way; a lot of responsibility with little restriction. Millbrook allowed me to fail and to grow from those experiences, and because of that, I know I can face any challenge head on.
