Knights Next Quest: Maya Simpson
Where did you apply?
“I applied to Towson, Rowan, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Kutztown, University of Maryland, Duquesne East Stroudsburg, Carnegie Melon, Penn State, and Millersville.
Where have you been accepted?
“I’ve gotten into all of these except Carnegie Melon, who I haven’t heard back from yet.”
What is your top choice among schools where you have been accepted/are waiting to hear from and why?
“My top choices as of right now are Rowan, Rutgers, or Towson. As I’ve gone through the application process, I’ve realized it is important to me that the college I go to is diverse, larger with activities and ways to be involved, and is close enough to home so I can come back easily. These schools fit those things for me”
What are your academic/career aspirations?
“I am looking to do something with communications, political science, and/or journalism. I’ve always enjoyed writing and love incorporating that with things I’m passionate about like mental health. I hope that I can find my niche as I enter college and explore different majors and topics to narrow down more of what I want to do. Whatever it is, my main goal is to help the world be a more peaceful and better place.”
