I was a member of the 2005 U.S. Physics Team, and found being on the team to be one of the most enjoyable academic experiences in my life. Over the summer, I attended the International Summer School for Young Physicists at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada, and this was also a great experience for me. After these activities were over, I decided to change my school courses for my senior year so I would be even better prepared for the Physics Team this year. This year, instead of taking a full course load at my high school, I am taking only a partial load and have taken courses outside of my school, at higher levels than my school offers. In science, I took the Electricity and Magnetism part of the AP Physics C course from Stanford University&rsqo;s EPGY Program. In math, I took Calculus II and Calculus III at Stony Brook University. Next fall, I will attend college and I plan to major in Physics.
