As of today, I have officially heard from every school I applied to!! And guess what?! I was accepted to every. single. one. SO EXCITED!!! Especially about the ones that are literally my dream schools (I am looking at you USC, TUFTS, and UC San Diego!!). But as excited as I am to hear back from all these schools, I have some mixed emotions as well.
As I told you all a little while ago, I recently competed for a full tuition scholarship to a local university and actually ended up winning it! And as much as I would love to go out of state, I do NOT want to be in debt when I get out of school (those schools I mentioned above are EXPENSIVE!). Plus, how do you pass up a full ride?! SOOO…I am officially a Canisius College Griff!
[They were actually the FIRST school I received an acceptance letter from! Must have been fate!]
Put my deposit in on Monday! Everything is starting to feel so real now that I have a reserved spot. The excitement and anticipation is definitely building. And Canisius really is a great school. They have the courses I am looking to get into and their study abroad program is one of the top in the nation.
So it looks like I will have to post pone my escape from Buffalo for a few more years…but I am happy with my decision. I know I will be so thankful in the long run that I took advantage of this opportunity!
I just wanted to share this with you all since it really is the next big step in my life! Now I can focus on preparing for the big move next fall (<-totally being sarcastic there…the campus is literally down the street from my house! But I WILL be dorming…I need at least a little independence!!).
