A sophomore from the University of Pennsylvania...

Kaitlin Welborn

Can you show us your school's song or cheer?
During our school song, there's a line that says, uh, "Here's a toast to dear old Penn," and since they can't drink alcohol in the stadium anymore, they literally throw toast onto the field, and so it's kind of a game to try and peg a cheerleader with a bagel.

Who is going to win the College Championship?
I am! [Shrugging double thumbs up]

How did you prepare for the show?
Um, I made lots and lots of flashcards, and my boyfriend now has memorized African capitals, because I made him sit down and do flashcards with me. [Laughs]

What will you do with your winnings?
I plan on joining the Peace Corps after I graduate and going to Africa, and since they don't really pay you very much to, um, volunteer and teach children English, I'm going to, uh, use that to pay for my travels, and also I would like some new shoes.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I plan on going to law school, and hopefully being, uh, eventually on the Supreme Court, so probably being a clerk for somebody in Washington, D.C.
