Why I Chose OU: I chose OU for two main reasons: individual attention and the school's large size. Though these reasons sound contradictory, they are not. At OU, I have always been treated as a unique person, never a number. The size of OU means that there are facilities, programs and classes that I have access to that wouldn't be available at a smaller school.

Favorite Bands: The Beatles and Pink Floyd

Favorite TV Shows: Mad Men, Arrested Development, 30 Rock

Favorite Movies: The Social Network, American Beauty, 2001: A Space Odyssey

Favorite Things to do in Norman: Going to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and seeing all the incredible speakers OU is able to bring in.

Other Schools Considered: University of Tulsa, Washington University in St. Louis, Northwestern, University of Chicago, Purdue, University of Kansas
