My college experience was great.  It was a really hard transition, I think especially freshman year.  I’m not sure if I was quite ready to go to college, but I figured it out, kind of, when I got there. Freshman year was hard, I felt like I spent a lot of time just taking care of myself and just getting through the day.  I felt like I had a lot less time to spend on my classes, and being social, things like that.  After I got through that first year, things got a lot easier.  And in the end, I feel like I had a really normal or better than normal college experience.  I was worried when I went in that I was going to have a really different experience than my twin brother, and he was going to have this typical college experience, and I was going to have to deal with all these other things, that I wasn’t going get to do everything I wanted to.  That didn’t end up being true.  I made great friends, and I was in clubs, and went abroad and took all sorts of normal things like that.  It was just really fun.  I graduated from Stanford in June, and I’m going to work as a teaching assistant this year at Stanford, and then I’m thinking probably medical school or maybe a PhD.  But right now, I’m leaning towards medical school.
