Nine essays and countless hours spent staring at my computer later, I am going to Harvard! Through the Seren Network, I have been lucky enough to receive a full scholarship to the Harvard Pre-College Program with four other Welsh students. We will be flying to Boston for two weeks where we will live, study and cram for exams in one of over three hundred possible subjects. However, I have been assured it is most definitely not just work; we will be meeting other students from all over the globe and doing lots of very much non-academic activities (including a compulsory trip to see a Red Sox baseball game)! It is such an amazing opportunity that I am incredibly grateful to have, and cannot wait to begin – watch out for a full account in a future edition of The Mitre.
