I chose to go to Northwestern primarily because of its academic reputation but also because their students are known for balancing the stress of classes with active social lives. I want to be in a community where students take their work seriously but also know how to have fun. I think I'm most looking forward to being somewhere new. I loved Millbrook, but now I'm excited to be in a large community surrounded by new people with unique experiences from which I can learn. I feel well prepared to take care of myself when I’m on my own at college. Not only did I develop solid study habits, but I also know not to let my schoolwork get in the way of looking after my emotional and physical well-being.
