But making that big decision, sending in the deposit, declaring that this was it... it was scary.
I envied the people who made their decisions 1,2,3 once they got their acceptance and sent in their deposit immediately. I envied my peers who wore their college sweatshirts proudly around school because they wanted to start spreading their school pride, even before they started college.
I just kept saying to myself, "Okay, once May 1st hits, I will finally be able to breathe. I will know what college I'm going to and everything will be set."
Hahaha- My mom and I took pictures of my acceptance letters for the schools I didn't choose. While I was so proud to be accepted into all the excellent colleges I applied to, I had to give the "Ehh... this just isn't the place I'm meant to be" face.
Here are my letters I sent back to SMC for scholarship and admission :)
Now, I don't know if the Class of 2015 received this cute little SMC frame in their acceptances, but when I received it in mine, I thought it was so sweet and I took a picture of me "picturing myself at SMC" :)
Okay my Class of 2015 readers, this week is crunch time. By Sunday, you'll be able to breathe, knowing you sent in your deposit to the college that you're meant to be at. All I can say is that, you've done the research, went on the tours and visits, and have the acceptances. It is up to you now to decide. Look at the academics, the opportunities, and activities each college provides, but most of all- look to the future and picture yourself at each college and see if it will help you become the person you want to be in four years.
If you have any last minute questions, please never hesitate to send me a Formspring, VYou, an email, or a tweet- I am definitely here for all of my readers going through this time!!
I wish you all so much luck. I am extremely excited to see the Class of 2015 next fall and really hope to see you there :)
Until next time, I send you my very best wishes,
