I spent this past week flying about the nation in a completely illogical way (LAX -> Yale -> Stanford -> Harvard -> LAX), visiting Yale, Stanford, and Harvard, weighing my options and trying to find my space and a balance of what I look for in a college campus. After visiting the three schools, it became clear to me that Stanford was not the best place for me, leaving Yale and Harvard, which both stole my heart.
After thinking about this long and hard, I have decided to attend Harvard University in the fall because I feel it provides more opportunities than Yale University, especially in the areas of government, politics, and history. Thank you all for your support along the way. I am deeply indebted to you all.
