1. First thoughts on going to college
So much. I’m leaving California. I’m leaving behind friends some of my favorite people that I may never see again. My entire life will change completely. Sometimes I think if it may have been a good idea to go to UCSD and stay instate but I know that I have much more to offer and to receive at Case.
I think the most pervasive thought is the academics (obviously.) I’ve been talking to graduates, alumni, and current students and one theme seems consistent: endless studying and work. I guess that’s inevitable though, having chosen premed piles upon piles of work is expected. I just hope that I can keep my head above the waters balance the work, the social life and the other experiences college has to offer.
