1996 – It was time to transfer from my 2 year school to a 4 year university. I had only 2 choices due to my major, “Physical Education, a.k.a. Kinesiology,” and due to proximity to home. My second choice was Towson, not because I seriously considered attending, but because it was my back-up plan. I thought my grades were not good enough and I knew I wouldn’t get in. I didn’t expect to hear from TU. To my surprise, TU responded first stating they had my information. A month later, I was accepted… under a provisional basis. Ironically, I never heard from my first choice… at all. The 2nd choice gave me a second chance to prove I was a good student worthy of attending a good school no matter my past setbacks. Thank you, #2!
