So, May 1st is around the corner and it’s that time of year again. National College Decision Day! Admission decision letters should be rolling in pretty soon, and you’re all holding your breath for that big fat letter to arrive in the mail (I know I’m still crossing my fingers to hear back from Sarah Lawrence College). But if you should unfortunately find a rejection letter in your mailbox, here are a couple of things you may find comfort in hearing.
“I know this may feel like the end of the world, but everything will work out in your favor.”
Always hard to hear, but also always the truth. You feel like your worlds shattered now, but as time goes on things will work themselves out the way they always do.
“If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.”
A little cliché, but I believe in destiny.
“The college process is unpredictable, and can’t be taken too personally.”
College’s receive thousands and thousands of applications each year, and while we wish they could take everyone, they can’t. But they’ve definitely missed out on someone special.
“Don’t worry about what other people think. This is no one’s business but yours.”
This is probably the most important one of them all. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks about where you got accepted to and where you didn’t. The college process isn’t an everyone process, something you might forget when people keep asking you where you’re going in the fall.
It’ll take some time, but you’ll be back on your feet in no time. You bright, resilient, fighter you.
