Why did you decide to go to this school?

My older sister had gone to Hendrix, and so that's how I knew about it, but because she and I had done everyyyything the same way throughout school -same sports, same clubs, same instrument in band, etc.- I wanted to break out of that pattern and try something on my own. I really liked the idea of a small school that was similar to Hendrix, so I checked out Earlham, Oberlin, Oglethorpe, and a long list of other schools. Every time I visited a campus or researched a school though, there was something I would see and say "hmm... I like the way Hendrix does that better." I ended up only applying to Hendrix and two other schools as backups, and since Hendrix gave me a pretty spectacular scholarship package, it was an easy decision.
