It is pretty overwhelming transferring to a university; it was very stressful, especially for an engineering student. It was very hard to adapt socially, but not that much academically, since I pretty much had a similar workload at Merrick Preparatory School. The engineering program is very tough though. I am pretty solid, however, in courses like geological engineering, physics, calculus, chemistry and all labs because Merrick Prep has done an amazing job preparing me. My time management skills are far and away better than all of my engineering friends, because Merrick Prep has immensely help me deal with high work loads. My lab reports are within 80-90% because of the education quality Merrick Prep provides. All of the courses I took at Merrick Prep are useful in university. I find myself having more knowledge in subjects like physics, chemistry, and geological engineering compared to my engineering friends.

I'm so thankful to you [Headmaster Kevin Farrell], and of course my teachers, classmates, and friends and everyone in Merrick Prep. I'm here because of you! I learned so much at Merrick Preparatory School; sometimes it was really hard, but worth it because I'm here now! I miss Merrick Prep so much! Thanks again for believing in me! It made all the difference!
