I just came back from my first Ivy League Connection meeting at De Anza High School. This morning I got dressed in a vacationesque floral shirt, flip flops and high-waisted shorts and packed a purse with everything I'd need. The meeting started at 1:00 and ended around 5:00. When I first got there, I noticed that there were no more than fifteen people there. Chiamaka Nwadike and Shanti Shrestha, two of my friends from middle school, were there. Emily, the other person who was accepted into the Business and Economics program at Columbia University.
A few minutes after we made our practice posts, we went to take pictures. I took a few with Chiamaka and Shanti and a couple pictures of the school. Soon after, the meeting was over and we were dismissed. I waved goodbye to everyone and went home with my mom. Overall, the meeting was very informative. At some points, it seemed repetitive but I'm sure it was for a good reason--Don's words are now etched into my brain.
