We asked Mauricio:

What aspect of your college/university are you most excited about?
What makes me most excited about my college is the student life I'll be able to experience once I am there. It will definitely be different than any other I've experienced.

What was your favorite class in high school?
My favorite class in high school was Ethics. We always discussed fascinating topics, especially because there were such diverse opinions on them.

What one tip about the college application process would you share with seniors or their parents?
One thing that worked for me was to be aware of the due dates for every item in the application. Having a designated time for each one was very useful to not fall into procrastination.
