On a side note: I almost attended Northwestern University for college. It was #2 and MIT was #1. Fortunately, I was accepted to my first choice, so I ended up in Boston instead of Chicago. Sometimes I wonder how my life would have changed if I had gone to Northwestern. Who would I have married? (I met my wife at MIT)
