Approach to College Applications (Jeff Brenzel, Yale University)

Approach to Extracurriculars:

“The thing we are looking for outside the classroom is not a series of check boxes on a resume; we’re looking instead for a high level of engagement or leadership in whatever it is that the student cares about most. We know that very few students can fully engage more than one or two primary activities at a high level.”

Approach to High School Involvement & College Aspirations-Anshu Siripurapu ASB President ‘11-12

“A certain level of prudence is necessary to avoid the extreme of severe over commitment. There were times when I felt that I couldn’t devote myself to any one activity because I had so much going on at any given time. If given a second chance at high school, I might choose to scale back my involvement to enjoy a deeper involvement in the activities I loved the most...”

Advice to parents

Palo Alto Online, September 3, 2010 Aspirations-Anshu Siripurapu ASB President ‘11-12

“Because of the frenzied world our teenagers live in-swollen with over-emphasis on external success- they more and more need the corrective of our caring. Rather than more grades and scores and achievements and playing time in sports…to tell them who they are, they need us to admire them for their humor, their strength of character, their trustworthiness, reliability and creativity. They need affirmation of their resourcefulness, idealism, patience, insight into themselves, and ability to care for others.”

From Anonymous Teacher, Gunn High School
