You have to try it doesn't matter if you are not seen as one of the top high schools in New Jersey. Worry about the hard work you have done, and that will pay off.
I went to visit the school and just fell in love with the campus.
I was selected for the program, which went from July to August, and it was a really special experience for me. I made a lot of connections, the teachers were really great, and that is where I first heard about Swarthmore College.
It was nice to see the setting of college before I actually entered. You learn to live on your own, study on your own, and manage your social and college life.
I thought about it, but it's a very small college, and I thought I would have a better chance if I went for early decision.
Those rigorous classes is what has helped me succeed.
