TJHSST 2010 Senior Destinations

Doesn't look like anyone's posted this up yet this year ... thought I'd do so. From the Senior Issue of TJToday, the school newspaper at TJHSST. Apologies for any typos, just done really quickly.

And for those of you who don't know about TJ/are gonna be like "doesn't hold a candle to Andover/Exeter/whatever" as I've seen in previous TJHSST Destinations threads, from Wikipedia:
Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST, TJ, Jefferson) is a Virginia state-chartered Governor's School located in Annandale, Fairfax County, Virginia, United States, west of Alexandria.[2] It is a regional high school operated by Fairfax County Public Schools.
As a publicly funded and administered high school with selective admissions, TJHSST is often compared with notable public magnet schools. Attendance at TJ is open to students in six local jurisdictions based on an admissions test and prior academic achievement. The selective admissions program was initiated in 1985 through the cooperation of state and county governments, as well as corporate sponsorship from the defense and technology industries. TJ occupies the building of the previously non-selective Thomas Jefferson High School (constructed in 1965). TJHSST is one of 18 Virginia Governor's Schools, and a founding member of the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology.
U.S. News & World Report ranked the school the best public high school in the nation in 2007,[3] 2008,[4] and 2009[5].

Overheard in the hallways:
"... this year was a really bad year for us... UVA waitlisted so many people! And Harvard?!"
"DUDE! I GOT INTO STANFORD EARLY!"
"There was someone wearing a white shirt with MIT just written on it in black sharpie on Destination Day..."
"Eh, if I don't get in anywhere else, I guess I'll just have to go to UVA."
"Oh yeah, William and Mary is my safety."


FIGHT ON!
