CHRISTOPHER STOP THIS I CANNOT HANDLE COLFER FEELS AND HP FEELS AT THE SAME TIME
octoberrose11 asked: Can I just take a second to second everything you said there? I researched schools and thought I fell in love with one in particular. It sounded like a perfect fit. I didn't take the time to visit the school until I was already accepted. I was miserable for the year I spent there. I'm $45K in debt over a college I left, a major that didn't fit me. So everything you said is A++++. I wish I had had that kind of advice this time three years ago.
aaw bby im so sorry!!! i was lucky; my big sister had gone through the whole college app process a couple years before me so i learned a lot from her, and then i visited Oberlin and the second i stepped on campus i just knew it was for me. :)
Anonymous asked: Any advice for a high school senior applying to college this fall?
Visit the campus. I can’t stress that enough. I mean obviously if there’s financial/logistical restrictions then that’s that, but if you *can* go visit, I highly recommend it. It’s good to stay overnight, take a couple classes, get a good feel for the type of students that go there and see if it’s a good fit for you.
Don’t be afraid to ask current or past students, too. Their feedback is invaluable. They’re much more likely to give you the straight-up honest truth about the school than a person from administration.
If you fall in love with a particular school (like I did), definitely do Early Decision or Early Action. Your chances of getting in increase a lot, and the stress ends a lot earlier for you than your peers that way. ;) I did ED so I knew I’d gotten into my dream school in like October or smt, so it was fun taunting my friends that were still sending in apps in February.
GOOD LUCK MI AMIGO DONT STRESS TOO MUCH OKAY?????? :*
