In November of last year, I

In November of last year, I had no idea where I wanted to go to college, or even where I wanted to apply. Since both my parents work full time it was pretty difficult to even get the chance to visit schools, so my mother hired a woman whos job it was to help find the right colleges for people. Her name was Ann and she was very helpful. I told her I wanted a small school, I wanted to do Archaeology, and that I didn't want to move too far away. She suggested Bryn Mawr which I was a little hesitant about at first due to the all girls thing. My brother went to Swartmore, so I knew of BMC, but I hadn't actually visited. He took me to look at Swat and Haverford but not BMC. Of course, when I did visit Bryn Mawr for the first time, 5 days before the early decision application was due, I fell in love with it. This school has history, an excellent reputation and it felt like home.

I have to say I absolutely adore Bryn Mawr. There are very few things that agrivate me about it. I love the campus (though it would be nice to not live so far away in Brecon) the people are all very nice, classes are challenging and I feel that the education I get here will really help me make a difference in the world. Bryn Mawr has produced outstanding women, and I intend to do my best so that I can some day be one of them.
