I'm a senior at Newsome High School in Lithia, Florida and I was accepted to Northwestern University. My first quarter starts in September of 2010, and I could NOT be more ecstatic. The campus is absolutely beautiful. The professors and students alike are friendly and always willing to help answer any questions you may have. I applied under an Early Decision agreement because after my visit to Evanston, I was certain that Northwestern was the perfect school for me. I would encourage you all to check out the school; I'm sure you'll love it just as much as I did. GO WILDCATS!
