I was looking over my transcript from Fairfield tonight — my REAL transcript, not the kind you can look up online — and I saw something I hadn’t seen before.

My class rank.

There were 650 in the class.

I’m 155.

That would be the top 23.84% of the class.


I was in the top 34% at Reading High, and the people there weren’t nearly the caliber of Fairfield. And they tell you that if you graduate in the top half, no matter what the school, you’ve done well.

I feel great.
