Well, for one, I don't wanna deal with out-of-state fees. I live in Cali so I'm aiming for Berkeley, Stanford, and if all else fails, UCI [University of California, Irvine]
I go to school at Cerro Villa MS. A neighboring school of El Rancho Charter, a once dominating science olympiad team. Rebecca Black goes to El Rancho. It's Friday everyday there. :D

You are thinking about going to Mines?? That is where state is every year for us. Beautiful campus scenery wise, the buildings are really old and they have started a ton of rennovation. It is also very small, but it is a great school, and there is a brand new student center that is awesome!!
