at times i wonder if i would have still come to penn given the chance to make the decision again.
i had a brief chat with a freshman friend of mine from a similar socioeconomic background and we were talking about what would have happened if we had gone to less competitive schools. i might have done engineering, or been pre-med, had i not been intimidated by the cruel curves — and the exorbitant amount of geniuses — here. (this is just the tip of the iceberg, though. i can talk about this topic for hours on-end and how Penn doesn’t truly level the playing field, although it does do a better job at closing the gap than a lot of institutions)
but oh well. i chose my path and now there’s nothing i can do. i’m still pretty frigging fortunate.
in writing a senior thesis, i knew i wanted to do the following:
- write about something that is currently relevant to many americans
- find something that has real-world implications
i think i finally found something that fulfills both pieces of criteria, but damnnn, my brain hurts and this whole process is a never-ending rollercoaster of emotions
long time no see, tumblr
i should write on this, considering it’s my senior year, right?
