Well, you've written letters to your
favorite colleges and are anxious to get the responses back. You've just
gotten a rejection letter from your number one pick! You are angry, upset,
and feel rejected. All normal feelings. Here are some
suggestions on how to deal with it.
-First, be honest with yourself. You may be
upset and devastated by a college not accepting you, but you need to
accept the decision the college has made.
-Talk to someone you know, love, and trust.
-To begin with, send letters to a few
colleges not just one. Do your homework; Study the campuses you are
sending the letter too. Are these colleges right for you?
-One of my daughters did not get accepted
at a large college. We were offended and upset at first when we
received the letter, but then we realized for some reason, it was not
meant to be for her to go there. You may not see it now, but the same
could be for you.
-Talk to your parents and counselors about
other choices and options.
-If your still feeling bad or sad, write
the college a letter about your feelings. Don't send it of course,
when you are done, read it out loud and then throw it away. It might
make you feel better.
-Just remember, there is a college for you.
And getting into a college is the first step, then comes the student
loans, grants, studying, and dedication.
