The School

I really like this school because it is not to far from home, about 3 hours and I also just like the school itself. My older sister goes to the school and from going there to see her I really love the school. Also, for the career that I really want to do I could go into a science class there and learn more in that class just like my sister is. I want to be somewhere in the medical field. If I study more science and take classes there that go along the lines of science I then can go into medical schooling.
