Princeton African-Americans

<p>Hey Princeton 2014's! :)</p>

<p>I'm new to CC, so let's get to know one another!</p>

<p>1) Where are you from/ What type of high school did you attend?</p>

<p>2) What do you plan to study at Princeton?</p>

<p>3) What is something interesting about you?</p>

<p>4) What social groups do you fit into/ What do you like to do?</p>

<p>5) Why did you choose Princeton?</p>

<p>Or you can just talk about whatever you want :D</p>

<p>While I shall not be matriculating at Princeton, I do think that the best way to get to know your classmates is through less anonymous media, like Facebook. I also believe Princeton has a personal blog on its website and various chatrooms available you can use to network. </p>

<p>But enjoy that amazing food for 4 years. Perhaps we shall run into each other (as rivals, of course) during a football game.</p>

<p>originally from gary, indiana. live in arizona now. public high school.
English. Wanna be a public relations specialist/publicist.
I love to tweet on Twitter...
I love to meet all kinds of people. I'm a social butterfly I guess. I don't wanna box myself into any category.
I love the school, the environment, etc. The fact that my close pals are going only makes it better.
I answered that a bit quickly.</p>

<p>Hi there!</p>

<p>1) I am from South Jersey and I attended a public high school.
2) I plan to study either English or Comparative Literature with a certificate in Creative Writing.
3)Hmmm something interesting? I like anime and bollywood music and movies!
4)I fit into the "other" social group lol. I have friends from many different backgronds and archetypes. I love to watch movies, go on facebook, read poetry, and write.
5)I chose Princeton for its boundless opportunities, close-knit community, arts culture, and people!</p>

<p>Can't wait to see you all! Look me up on facebook and add me!</p>

<p>Great school but I hate the grade inflatation so I'm not applying.</p>

<p>^That's a bad reason not to apply. If anything, Princeton has grade deflation compared to its peers.</p>

<p>Lol, assuming you're referring to other Ivy League schools as it's "peers", that's why I'm not applying to them either!</p>

<p>Still, I've never heard of anyone not applying to a school because it has grade inflation. Most colleges in the have seen steady increases in average GPA over the past couple of decades anyway.</p>

<p>hahhaa why is grade inflation a problem?</p>

<p>elbeeen: Hmmm...Princeton actually doesn't have grade inflation. The school actually practices grade deflation, although I've heard that it mainly affects students who are studying the sciences. </p>

<p>It's nice to meet you MorganSimone and BeautifulNerd219! Are you two as excited for the school year as I am?</p>

<p>ksarmand--Yup, maybe we will bump into one another at a football game lol. Harvard is a umm...nice place I suppose :)</p>

<p>MorganSimone--We seem pretty similar. I plan on studying politics/international relations. However, I'm really excited about the creative writing program.
I guess an interesting thing about me is that like anime (not very original) and that I love to draw (I sketch and do a lot of digital painting). I'm a pretty outgoing person and have friends all over the place. I chose Princeton because of the academic program and because I fell in love with the school at first sight :D</p>
