The statement "it looks good on college applications" is hammered into me until it becomes a branding, programmed into my brain cells
  Words.  Words matter.  Words matter to me.  Power. They have power. They have power beyond understanding.  People don't understand it.  They write it off. But a text is powerful.
On the first class meeting of my freshman year, I was told that when you leave highschool you are two numbers. SAT: GPA: keep up your grades, stay out of trouble, get involved.  
I am not an SAT score.
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. —Albert Einstein
