My dream school since I was a little kid is Stanford. My room is red. My hair is streaked red. I have a thousand Stanford merch. Stanford Summer Session 2012 were the best days of my life.

I am also applying to:
UC Berk (My sister goes there)
USC (both my parents are alumni)
Caltech (they've emailed me about playing volleyball for them)
Harvard (Mostly a "applying just to apply" situation, doubt I'll get in)
