Niece III has been accepted to Wesleyan, Amherst, and Tufts. Last school year, Niece II applied early and had an acceptance to be proud of, but Niece III decided to have more choices, so acceptances are trickling in this Spring.
Tufts loves her so much that they quoted her essay in the acceptance letter they sent to everyone. Pretty cool.
Aside from all the well-documented challenges she has had at home, Niece III has also had to deal with a concussion, more time at home, and following in the footsteps of her accomplished sister. I can relate to this last challenge, but all the other things she has had to deal with are way beyond me. She has shown great resiliency as she has made her way through the past few years.
