Why I Chose Stanford: "Stanford is a place of excitement. The overall atmosphere is both laid back as well as crazy at times which is the exact place I have always pictured myself. The people are extraordinary, the most helpful and caring people you could ever meet. Stanford strives for excellence and succeeding in both academics and athletics and is willing to go to great lengths to get people to where they wish to be. I chose Stanford because there is simply no better place to help me achieve my goals both in the pool as well as in the classroom."
