It’s that terrible time, where I must now turn down all colleges I won’t be attending.
And it’s hard because one of those colleges was actually my favorite. But in the end, it’s what one can afford that determines one’s college decision.
Sure, I love the college that I am choosing (Bard) but I am also sad that I couldn’t accept the offer of my favorite college (Williams). In my opinion, a college should not accept someone if they don’t meet that student’s financial need. Crazy, I know.
I’m fine, though. I’m at peace, and I am so happy and proud to have gotten into the colleges that I did. Some people do not have that opportunity.
I also have the advantage of really knowing Bard from the inside, since I have been taking classes there for two years, and I am absolutely sure that I will get a pretty equal education to Williams (except without the name). Williams also has a semester-at-sea program to which any undergraduate can apply, so I will definitely take advantage of that, hehehe.
I can’t wait to be a college student!!!
