So I have been very busy stressing the last few weeks over college admissions decisions. And the results are in… next year I will be attending University of Pennsylvania! I am so thrilled because all the work I have put into high school has finally culminated in this one success.
Now the one annoyance I have now regarding colleges is the name. Whenever people ask where I am going to school (a question that everyone learns to hate their senior year) I say Penn. And then the next remark is “Penn State?” And I don’t mean to be pretentious in saying this but I have worked by butt off trying to get into an Ivy League and so I sigh internally and try to explain. A lot of people do understand but I supposed it will be forever affiliated with a state school. I wonder of Wash U students get the same thing. Or perhaps NYU?
Regardless I am going to a fabulous school and ultimately am very content. Now begins the quest for roommates, housing, courses, etc. There is so much information that they throw at you. It is overwhelming! Any advice before I embark on the next four years of my life?
