Sunday afternoon, my dad and I left for Nashville, TN to visit the absolutely wonderful Vanderbilt University! It wasn't my first time visiting the school (in fact it was my second time this school year), and I love it even more than I did before!! The reason I visited Vandy was for their Black and Gold Day. It's basically a mini college visiting day that includes an information/financial aid session, a tour, an activities fair, and a panel with the presidents of the 4 schools of Vandy. 

It started raining when our walking tour began!!

Both of the tour guides that I've had at Vandy were fantastic!! They each had different things to say and I found out a lot of new information that I had never heard before!! The picture above was a sneakily taken photo of the tour guide by my dad.

This trip came at such an ideal time because I needed to be super inspired to finish off the end of my junior year strong. From now until the end of the year, I have 3 final projects, 1 research paper, 4 exams, 2 AP's, SAT's and SAT II's, and ACT's! After refreshing my memory with the standards that Vanderbilt upholds in terms of their admissions (their regular decision acceptance rate is 15.6%!!), I am now fully ready to take on the rest of this year and make my transcript look GREAT for college!!!

Have a great day everyone!!
