April 30, 2015. A day many of us are counting down to. For a handful, it is a day where applicants must give up all, but one, of their acceptances. For others, it represents a silver-lining as spots become available for those who are currently awaiting decisions. I never thought I would be amongst the handful, HECK! I was certain I would become a reapplicant. Thankfully, three schools considered me a good fit and offered me a place in their incoming class of 2019. That’s a good thing, right?
At this time, I have decided which of the three I would like to attend, but at times I can battle with my choice. On one hand, it is the perfect school for me, and on the other hand I feel swayed by outside opinions. Honestly, I have no idea why people feel the need to comment on my decision-making, especially when they themselves have no idea how difficult the application process is. Nonetheless, I am going to go with my first choice, and I will not look back.
What factors play a vital role in determining the right school for you?
