Congrats to high school seniors and their parents on making it past the November 1 early college application deadlines. YAY! Rick Clark, Director of Admissions at Georgia Tech, recently published this insightful and timely blog reminding seniors and their families celebrate every acceptance as a victory.
Some of my favorite lines include:
"I hear too many students get into a college and say, “Yea. But it is just the University of X.” C’mon, man. You applied there. You worked hard to assemble an application– and you paid to send it in. Now you’ve been offered a spot. AMAZING!"
"And look- the entire goal here is to have choices and options. YOU just got another one. That is awesome. I’m proud of you and you should be proud of yourself too. Don’t let a school’s ranking or admit rate diminish your excitement."
