On top of that, we’re all anxiously checking to see which students decided to commit to sign up at USC. The ball really is in your court now.

If there is certainly something you should bring with you a school that is high, it’s a pen. We shall provide you with one thing to write on, but we do not give you one thing to compose with.

I started the week with about ten extra pens and ended with two.
