Ever since I can remember I have been raised to love the University of Florida. So, naturally, ever since I could start filling out college applications University of Florida was on the top of my list. I knew the exact test scores and classes required for me to get into the school. The day finally came when I could start taking the ACT, I worked my rear-end off to get the best possible score. When I finally got my test score in though, I fell way short and got an 18. The ACT requirement for UF was a 20, I retook my test several times and still nothing changed.
I was beyond devastated I didn't score as well as I wanted to! I cried, I can't tell you how long, that my test score wouldn't change, so I could be accepted. I emailed them so many times seeing if their was anything I could do to get in, with my bad test score. Then all the sudden it was like I had a big awakening. I realized that if God wanted me to be at University of Florida, he would've put me at University of Florida!
So I filled out an application for Missouri State. After being accepted into Missouri State and touring it, I knew that was exactly where God wanted me to be! I felt more at home at Missouri State than any other college campus I have ever been on. If at any point in the future I still want to transfer to University of Florida, I can! It is a little heartbreaking not getting in your dream school but God has a plan for everyone! So even though I grew up yelling "Chomp 'Em" I now yell "Bear Up" and I could not be happier!
