Along with many other area high school seniors, Sydney received responses from her college applications last week. She applied to 14 colleges, was admitted to six, wait-listed to one and rejected by the rest. But when she opened one special envelope, she said, "Oh, my God, I got into Harvard!"
News of Sydney's acceptance appeared in Monday's Burlington Free Press along with a wonderful photo of her (which I can't find on line or I would provide a link here). According to the Harvard Crimson a record-low 6.9 percent of applicants have been accepted to the Harvard College Class of 2014, so this is a major accomplishment and testimony to Sydney' hard work and dedication in her studies and extra-curricular activities.
I photographed Sydney recently for her yearbook portrait and she is as lovely as she looks.
