Giles was easy--he found the three best photography schools, then chose the one he liked the most. Felix's college search was different.
"Give us some criteria," we said in the fall. "What are you thinking?"
"I'm looking for a great biology department. But it can't be pre-med biology. It has to focus on evolutionary biology and ecology. And I need a strong foreign language department, with access to study abroad, for my double major in Spanish. They have to accept all my AP credit. And they need to pay for everything."
"Excellent," the Composer said drily. "We should be able to check out both of those schools."
So, they found just the one. Felix is going to a flagship state university, with everything paid for. He will be able to complete his degree in three years, double majoring in biology and Spanish, and he has access to grants for the travel he wants to do. Most, most excellent indeed!
