I was so happy when Tejal told me that she was coming to visit UVA this past Friday. She was here for an admitted students Days on the Lawn where prospective students come to UVA for a day of panels, talks, tours, and to get a dose of a day at UVA. She asked to meet up and we got lunch at one of my favorite places on the Corner called Basil. I later ran into her, my brother, as well as our friend Adi near the Amphitheater and HAD to take pictures on this gorgeous spring day.

HHahahaha Sohum finally realized that he still had on Tejal’s name tag.

ANDD since Adi looked so dapper all dressed up for an interview we decided to take a couple of quick portraits so that he could get his quintessential “column picture” on the Lawn. 

Don’t be fooled, he’s really just laughing at a really cute puppy off to the side.

This last one is my absolute favorite and his reaction to when I mentioned that his mom would LOVE these pictures. Well, I hope she does and I hope that your interview went well. Stay looking dapper & I hope you’re having the best first year at UVA. Tejal, if you’re reading this, CONGRATS FOR COMMITTING HERE!!! I hope that you’re next and that I can’t wait to take your “column picture” here at UVA next year!.
