Making an offer

"I gained knowledge about potential future careers.  I brushed up on my algebra skills. I learned my way around campus. I gained a few wonderful friends in the process.
I got the chance to get my feet wet in terms of preparing myself for the college experience.  Being exposed to potential professional fields was awesome.  It was really important to me to see what I could be doing 10 years down the road if I stick with the "difficult stuff."  To me, it was like seeing around the mountain that is my education and witnessing a possible future."
