"The building is a bit small, so I feel that I need to leave once in awhile to get some air. I was hoping the school would have a gym like UCSF, but I guess I will have to join a private one.

"I'm a borderline applicant with connections, so the interview basically made it tougher for me. I had to prove why I was a worthy of an acceptance. In the end, I think I did alright.
