Question:

In your opinion, how will climate change affect life in California 100 years from now?

Answer:

Climate change is already affecting our lives in California, and 100 years from now we will feel the impact even more. Cities across southern California in the past several years have experienced water shortages and residents have been restricted in our water usage. In 100 years, one hopes we will have been forced to upgrade our technology so that we are reclaiming water to use for watering our yards and even washing clothes. California tends to be on the cutting edge of progressive policies, so while we currently offer a tax reduction for people purchasing electric cars, in the future we may have even more benefits for such consumer choices. Technological innovations, however, won't solve all of our problems. Despite our efforts to reduce our consumption, the rising global temperatures are increasing extreme weather incidents. The past decade has seen some of the most vicious wildfires across our state, and we have had to pour resources--including our precious water supply--into combating these fires. In 100 years, areas currently populated with homes and businesses may be turned into natural land, as they are uninhabitable due to fire risk. Even the homes on the desirable coastal areas, such as Malibu, may no longer be occupied, if rising sea levels cause beaches to recede. Overall, there are some things we can fix as humans, and some things we cannot control. At some point nature will win out over man. (Example high school on-demand writing task)

Answer:

The most important part of a successful college admissions process is preparing a student to find their "best fit" school. Students should develop a balanced college list, including safety, match and reach schools. All students have the ability to get into a great 4-year institution, and they should find the schools that are the best fit for their academic and family profile, and then tailor their application to highlight why they are a perfect fit for those schools (through essays, highlighting extracurriculars, demonstrating leadership, etc. as well as academics). I love working with students to help them define and get excited about their own college path, so that when those acceptance letters come in, they truly can't wait to attend the school they have their heart set on!
