Daniel Smith '18 - Yale University
"I had a large group of faculty supporting me for my college process. Throughout my senior year, Mr. Barnard regularly checked in with me to see where I was with my Naval Academy application, Yale application, and NROTC application.
I chose Yale because I believe it will give me plenty of options—I hope to major in Chemical Engineering. Since my sophomore year, I have been fascinated with chemistry and I am most excited that I will be able to dive deeper into the subject with more rigorous courses. I am also eager to attend a college that has so many unique voices from around the country and the world.”
