The college admissions process is harder than ever and bla bla bla. I’ve heard it over and over again, but it’s hard to actually believe it until it actually happens to you. I had my schools I applied to that I was predicting from the start that I wouldn’t get into. But, what did I have to lose? Even if I didn’t end up going there, it would still be nice to say I got in.
I knew from the beginning that it was highly unlikely that I would get into UCLA. And… I didn’t. What I wasn’t counting on was having the same luck with 2 out of 3 of the other UCs that I applied to. Davis rejected me because I am not a cow.
And here’s hint #1 as to where I’m going next year. I did not get into UC Irvine. Another one of my friends who applied there also did not get in.
I wasn’t absolutely devastated by it. I didn’t sob my eyes out. It wasn’t that difficult of news, since by the time I got my letter I already had a strong feeling where I was going to go. I decided to wait for the last of the schools to get back to me, just to be polite, and to know all my options, but my mind was made up around late February.
Tomorrow: I have a ¼ success rate with my state!
