I chose Brandeis because: Because of the great education Brandeis offers and because I can also play collegiate baseball here. 

My favorite movie of all time is: Shawshank Redemption because it is one of the best movies of all time 

My favorite pro or college sports team is: Boston College because when I was growing up I became a huge fan of former point guard Troy Bell and have rooted for them ever since. 

My favorite meal at Brandeis or in Waltham is: Buffalo Chicken Wrap made by Caesar at Grill Works in Upper Usdan.
