The pressures are on. College admission is not what it used to be. Getting good grades used to be all it took and being involved wouldn’t have hurt either. Nowadays being in clubs is a must and having additional academic achievements is strongly encouraged. Personally, I didn’t have a problem getting into college but before the time came for me to actually apply, everyone made it seem like a bigger deal than it actually was.
Getting to college was easy, paying for college is where it got complicated. In high school, it was all about going to college, that was the plan, so that it what I was focused on. Once I got here, I realized my plan for paying tuition, room and board, meal plan, etc. was not so thought out. Three cheers for my enrollment hold due to not having paid bursar bill! Yeah, I applied for scholarships and took out a couple loans but it’s still not enough…
When I enrolled in June, I sat down with an advisor, who helped me choose my major. I told her what I thought I wanted to do as a career and she said StratCom was the way to go. To be completely honest, I can not remember what I told her. With that being said, I have no idea what I’ll be using my degree for, I’m just kind of winging it. But hey, I know I still have plenty of time to figure all of that out so I’m not tripping. Worrying comes later.
Honestly so far, the most interesting article I have found so far is my Cracked article. Everything since then has been dull compared to it. I really liked the video I found that I inserted a few posts back because it covered pretty much all the pros and cons of attending college in about 3 minutes. However a YouTube video is not an article.
