Samantha Vasquez  - 11th Grade

Where would you like to go to school and why?

I have a few options to choose from: Johns Hopkins, Dartmouth, Stanford, USC. The reason why I would like to go these schools is because they have good neuroscience programs. Since I was younger I have always been interested in the medical field, and when I got to middle school, it sparked my interest for the study of the brain.

What are you excelling in academically?

I am excelling in IM3 and Instrumental Ensemble. I think the reason why I excel in it is because I try my best in any subject and asking for as much help as possible.

Where would you like to go to school and why?

I am still unsure of where I should go. There are already so many different options, so it's quite hard to choose.

Ask me about my career choice?

I was looking into working in the social field since I enjoy communicating with others and helping people through their problems.

I’m not sure what school I want to go to after high school. I do want to find a college that will help me excel in what it is that I choose to do.

I am currently excelling in all my classes except for AP history, which has been a challenge. However, I am giving it my all to get my grade up.

Jace Reyna - 11th Grade

What school would you like to go to and why?

I would like go to Harvard because it has the best medical program. I've always dreamed of doing something with kids, so I decided that the perfect job for me would be to become a gynecologist. I also plan to take a business class on the side so when I am done being a doctor I can own my own orphanage and help children find homes and happiness.

What are you excelling in academically?

I am excelling in all my classes, but what I am most passionate about is science, most currently physics, and history. I am also fairly good at math and Spanish, and know how to read music. I love to learn new things, and often push myself to the limit.

Noreli Marroquin - 10th Grade

What school would you like to go to and why?

I am between the universities of UC Davis, Princeton and Brown University. Both Brown and Davis because they mainly focus on biology and agriculture. Princeton I would like to attend because I know that they give you three years to finalize your major.

What are you excelling in academically?

I am excelling in all my classes with either a high or low A. My favorite classes currently would be World History and English, but I enjoy every other subject as well.

Samantha Rico - 11th Grade

What school would you like to go to and why?

I would like to go to New York University because of its Psychology program. I haven't decided on what I would like to major in, either psychology or teaching, but hopefully LARC will guide me a little more on what I want to do as a career.

What are you excelling in academically?

As of now, I suppose I am excelling in every class with at least an A- : AP Spanish, Pre-Calculus, AP U.S.History, AP English, and Honors Physics. However, I would say I am more comfortable in tutoring Spanish, Pre-Calculus, or English.

Where you would like to go to school and why?

 As of right now, I'm still undecided on which school I am aiming to go to. However, Harvard, Yale, and Princeton are all big competitors! Each of these schools have different opportunities I want to take.

I'm available to help with any class! I believe the classes I am the best at explaining are Math and Spanish.
