The College Process, As Told By Michael Gary Scott

It's been a rollercoaster, to say the least.

The College Process, As Told By Michael Gary Scott

With the November 1st deadline hanging above the heads of seniors everywhere, the college process is in full swing for the class of 2019. It's been a rollercoaster, to say the least. We've gone from being mere freshman with no idea what was going on, to seniors who are ready to pursue their dreams.

The obstacles we've overcome and the emotions we've dealt with can only be described one way; the one and only, Michael Scott.

1. Having no plan, and no worries.

You're young and just trying to figure out high school. Life is great! Life is simple! For now.

2. That first college meeting where you get completely stressed out and overwhelmed.

One day your school hits you with a meeting with your guidance counselors or college counselor. They're gonna spit a bunch of information at you that's gonna leave you feeling behind before you even begin.

3. The SAT's.

Everyone's favorite part! The beloved SAT. You, my friend, get to study for hours each week and stress yourself out because this ONE test has a major impact on your future! Enjoy!

4. Getting the SAT Scores back..

This helps you figure out what colleges to look at, therefore ultimately crushing your dreams or giving you that boost of confidence.

5. Visiting Colleges and instantly falling in love

Sometimes, if you're really lucky, you just walk on a campus and it feels right. There's really no other way to describe it then love at first sight.

6. Personal Statement Essay time.

The application process has begun! You fill out all of your information, and now you have to summarize your entire character in one essay. No big deal! Right?

7. You feel accomplished! But... supplements sneak up on you.

Finishing that major personal essay is a huge accomplishment. Of course, that is until you see the multiple supplemental questions for each University.

8. Having small panic attacks periodically for a few days after you realize you're ready to apply.

Okay, so you're done. Now, you take some time to realize "oh wow, I'm DONE." Pressing submit can be nervewracking, because the power is no longer in your hands. So feel free to let out the panic for a couple hours (or days).

10. And now... we wait.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
