Triplett on Choosing Stanford
“I chose Stanford for too many reasons to count.  It blows my mind that one place can be so highly regarded in both academics and athletics, but what truly made my decision was the people.  When I met the team, I felt like I was looking at 35 of me.  Every single one of them tall, smart, athletic, driven and hardworking, but most of all they were happy.  Stanford is the only place other than where I live that I have felt like I was home.”
