Overheard in SF

High School girl on a Princeton admissions interview: Yes, it is a bit of a commute.
Alumni interviewer: Yeah, from the east bay to San Francisco, for high school! How long does it take.
HSG: Not that long, about 40 minutes on BART (ed note - Bay Area Rapid Transit - like the subway). My time on BART is my most precious time in the week. I see all of these things I never would otherwise, and really get a feeling for the real Oakland.
AI: Uh, yeah.
