Nicole is thinking about going to Stanford
Nicole just started to learn fencing. I said "why don't you look at US schools that have fencing teams, maybe you can get a scholarship"? She found Stanford, and now she thinks maybe she would like to go there! She doesn't graduate for two more years, but I must say she has pretty good taste! I can not afford the tuition (non international tuition was $37,000 per year with another $12,000 for living costs/ and for international students it's so much more). She would need some kind of scholarship. They say she was born to fence. She is left handed and almost 6 feet tall. Of course the good fencing teams are not West. I think Harvard has the best fencing team in America. I don't even want to know what Harvard cost! I just read Harvard does not give athletic scholarships! Dreams are free…she has two years to dream! Why dream small?
