The Day Your College Admission Results Are Out

Yeah, I know. The results are out waaaay later in the future, but it's not too early to prepare or write a blog post about it. Anyway, early decision/action to colleges will be out this month, so I figured, why not write this thing?

The day your college admission results are out is going to be a bad one. You won't be able to concentrate on ANYTHING and your butt will be itching the entire day as you wait (not so) patiently for your results to arrive. So what exactly are the do's and don't's of what to do the day your college admission results are out?

Don't tell anybody (except your family unless your mom's a tattle tale)

You don't want people asking you whether you got accepted or not. It's not cool. It's much better to have fewer people know about the places you've applied, because getting bombarded with questions like "did you get accepted?" and stuff like that is not fun. I mean, there IS the possibility that you might get rejected and, well, it's embarrassing. However, if you don't mind the questions, you can ignore my advice. This is just for you people who, like me, don't like the possibility of letting people down very much.

Keep busy and occupied

Do whatever the heck you need to do to keep your mind off of the admission results that are to be released. Go bowling, watch a movie, have a hot chocolate, skip school, go shopping, whatever. Just DO SOMETHING that'll keep your feet and mind moving.

Stay far faaaaar away from College Confidential

Those of you who have never taken part of this horrible website, good on you! It's really addicting and very nerve-wracking to be around people who think getting a 2100 on the SAT is a "weak score". Excuse me? But if you are an avid user anyway (like me), please listen to my advice and stay far away from CC for at least two days. Especially the day the results are released. People on that forum will be freaking out and that's going to double your anxiety.

Don't ever be alone

Don't even try. Or you'll end up on the Internet obsessively checking whether the decisions are up or not. That heart stopping feeling you get every time you refresh. Ugh. Not nice. Not nice at all.

Anyway, those are my tips for all you seniors applying to colleges this year. Good luck to all prospies!
