It’s been a long time since I applied for college and even started looking into colleges. According to Gawker’s “How to Get Into a Good College Now,” everything I did back then would have landed me nowhere basically. Since that was four years ago, I have no interest really in trying to figure out how high school students are going through their application processes because it doesn’t apply to me, but I do feel a little bad if this is all truth.
Before I send you off to read this post, here are just a few of my last pieces of advice since I won’t be writing my school series anymore in the fall.
- The school that everyone says is the best may not be the best for you.
- It’s okay to transfer.
- Anyone that tries to pressure you into going to a certain school ie) a friend, significant other, family etc. doesn’t know what they’re talking about. This is a decision that the grown up you has to make.
That’s all I have. Talking about this makes me nostalgic so I’m gonna have to end this post early so I don’t end up sharing a story with all of you when I was four that involves my grandpa and I and a bad entrepreneurial joke…oh wait – someone did that in their final presentation today.
