Decisions, Decisions

Waaaaaaas UP?!

Why does this always make me laugh?!

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!!).

    CONGRATS!! First of all on being accepted to every college, but also to making a decision! No debt would be so awesome. I can’t wait to finally make my decision… I’ve narrowed it down to two schools, but I just can’t decide!!
    Thanks for sharing the link for condescending wonka on twitter. I’m following that ASAP!

    CONGRATS GIRL! Isn’t it the best feeling having the whole college planning over with? I ended up applying early decision to a school that would be considered a safety for me but I loved it so much that I didn’t even care about or bother with any of my reaches! And I honestly could not be happier with my decision! :) Best of luck to you with the rest of your senior year! And most of all enjoy it now that you’re all set and don’t have to stress or worry as much anymore! :) xo

    Oh my goodness- that is amazing! Congratulations, girl!! I knew all of those schools would want you. You had nothing to worry about.
    Now you can enjoy every minute of the rest of your senior year and take the time to decide which school is the best fit for you. (:
