As everyone generally feels, junior year is the hardest year in high school. Well, they don’t tell you about senior year.
While it’s true that academically this has been by far my easiest year, applying to colleges has been one of the most stressful things I’ve had to do all high school long.
I figured I’d know where I’m going by the hard deadline most schools set of May 1st as a reply date.
Well I was wrong about that.
I just figured it out on Thursday, and that choice is Chapman University (or more specially Dodge College).
Okay, so now I’m done.
I still have to figure out housing, classes and worst of all…finances.
Applying for financial aid is an ordeal in itself. Because after grants and scholarships come the dreaded student loans. Those are going to stack up. All I can say is that I hope I have a damn good job when I leave college or those are going to stay with me for a while.
