After lunch, Brandon, Arnold, and I went to CVS to buy some survival stuff. After that, we walked around the street, shopped at some interesting stores, and finally, we arrived at the ugliest building in Providence, the Science Library. When I entered the building, I thought that was a really nice place because the AC was running. With all the heat and sweat, AC, at that moment, was my best friend. I decided to explore the library. I swiped my card, and walked upstairs.

Two hours later, I attended "Making a Good Impression: How to Engage in a Successful Interview" workshop. I knew that in order to get a job, get accepted by a college, and get an internship, etc., so I decided to attend. When I arrived, there were already many people there. In the workshop, we practiced with a partner some possible questions on any interview, such as "what are you the best candidate?" "how can you contribute to the school/company?" and "what are your interested?" When I was answering these questions, I did not feel awkward when answering, and I thought it was because I already got some experiences from the nerve-wrecking ILC interview.
The last activity I did today was to attend "College Admissions Series:Writing the College Admissions Essay." The title was very appealing especially for me, who is a rising-senior. It was a really informative and energetic lecture. The lecturer was Bill Caskey, one of Brown's admission officer and the director of Alumni College Advising Program. He went through two sets of imaginary applications, one from Andrew and one from Andy, and told us to be the admission officer and decide whether they get accepted or not. Brown admission officer graded applicants academically and non-academically with a scale from one to six, which was a fact that I did not know before. The process was really interesting because it was not just a lecture of how to write an application essay, but a comparison between a successful and a less successful application, so we could see what to really focus on when we are applying. Luckily, I was able to ask my question about whether or not to write undeclared in applications, and the answer was no.
I said that I want to learn today, and I did, so I am happy about that. The only bad thing is that my nose started running in the evening, and now I still have to finish my biotech homework. I hope my nose gets better.
