Time to Relax!
Today was probably our most important day in class thus far: our 12 page drafts were due! Luckily, I worked incredibly hard last night to get it done so all I had to finish today were my footnotes and bibliography.
In class we had a guest speaker who graduated from Columbia in 2009 and now works for Macys.com. Samy Harmoush gave a great seminar on marketing, advertising and how we shouldn’t fall for all the advertisements when it comes to college. He showed us how important it is to thoroughly consider what colleges have to offer and what we truly want before making a decision. Samy made me realize that getting rejected from some of my top schools shouldn’t be that big of a deal because ultimately, I’m the one who has to make the best of what there is.
I’m glad that we turned in our drafts so that we can have peace of mind while we visit UPENN tomorrow. I’m so excited!
