I would choose my school again because it has been a perfect fit for me. Attending my university for the past year has opened my eyes to a whole new perspective on life and has taught me that there is so much more to life than what I was used to. College has been a huge stepping stone towards achieving my goals to attend graduate school and begin my career. I am so thankful for the opportunity to attend a university that encourages me to go above and beyond and to never stop reaching for my goals no matter what life throws my way.
