College Bound: The Universities You Do (Or Don’t) Get Into Do Not Define You

Every year, college acceptance letters start hitting the mailboxes. While this can be a very stressful time in your educational career, it is also a time to step back and look at the big picture for your future college successes!

While many students are intimidated by the idea of college, especially when it comes to their dream schools, it is important to keep a positive attitude. The schools you do and don’t get into do not define who you are as a student or individual. Here are a few tips about college admissions results:

Don’t Take It Personally:
Remember; whether you are crying tears of joy or sorrow, your admissions decisions do not define who you are. Getting in doesn’t mean life’s doors are now open to you without effort and drive. Being rejected doesn’t mean that all of your dreams are no longer important. No matter what your envelope says, you endured an extensive and exhausting process – congratulations!

Visit The Prospective Campuses, Again:
Once you figure out which campuses are potential, visit them again! Spend all day on the different campuses and see what interests you the most or see what different amenities they have that will help you succeed as a student. You may find yourself learning new things about the campus that you didn’t know before!

Celebrate:
Whether it is your first choice or your fifth choice, take pride in that a school you applied to wants to extend acceptance to you. This is something to be proud of. Your hard work has paid off! And we are all PROUD of you!
