So basically, Stanford was it (Got in Early Action.) That was after Upenn offered me a place in their BFS program. They select only 100 students from all their 4 undergraduate colleges and its sort of an honor society - basically "the top of the top" and it is said that these few students are in primary positions for scholarships like "Rhodes, Gates..etc." BFS students also have to maintain a 3.6 gpa or above, and while that is hard..its also a huge honor for such a prestigious university to place you in such a program.
"Aong, with academic distinction, joining the BFS brings membership in vital intellectual community. A student-run activities commitee plans regular events, including social gatherings, movies, and trips to local cultural institutions...The rigorous, exploration-based program also naturally positions participants to win presitigious outside grants and prepares them to apply to graduate fellowships such as the Rhodes, Mellon, Gates, and Fullbright....they often puruse independent research projects that emerge from dynamic relaitonships they have with advisors and faculty. Many are authors or co-authors of published papers providing genuine contributions to creating new knowledge. BFS and its parent organization, the Center for Undergradate Research and Fellowhips, can provide funding for independent projects during the summer and academic year and sponsor public events where students can present the results of their research."
Okay so I typed up some of the most important information from the brochure they set. I really need all your opinions!
What would you choose?
(I overlooked Dartmouth, Duke and Berkeley - but yeah, I've gotten into those too.)
