Why I Chose Stanford: "Choosing a college is obviously not an easy decision for anyone. When I was choosing where I would attend, I looked to the academic side of Stanford. It was this side that made my decision much easier. Here at Stanford, there are seemingly endless opportunities to help me find my passions outside of water polo and help me prepare for life after college. I chose Stanford largely because of the ample undergraduate resources available and, of course, because of the combination of stellar athletics and academics."
