I sent my resume to many schools, but two in particular: Cal Tech & MIT. I was interested in attending both......but both for the wrong reasons. You'd have to really know me to know why I picked those schools. I never heard from Cal Tech. I was accepted to MIT.
I just couldn't afford to go there.
6 years later and I'm in radio with a side hobby of film making. Nothing those two schools could have ever gotten me into.
