Talking to my interviewer makes the college sound amazing, and I would love to go there. The weather includes snow, they have a strong outdoors club, a strong quiz bowl, a great liberal arts education, good opportunities for the science-oriented, and, probably most uniquely, the Dacie Moses House, where you can always come in and bake some cookies.
Strangely enough, my interviewer also mentioned that baking (chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies, to be specific) was a stress-reliever for her; I suppose I'm not as weird as I thought. I'm really excited to be applying to Carleton, and I hope I will be accepted.
