Hi there. I am definitely not your average CC poster. I flunked out of college last fall term, for various reasons, and I'm now reapplying for admittance for spring '09. I'm currently spending two semester at my local JUCO so raise my GPA and hopefully continue what I failed to do a year ago. I applied to a few state schools and a private school (they're generous with financial aid -- as for current status of the economy, I think they're going to be a bit stingy). Right now I'm just praying for just ONE school to accept me.
So far here are the results:
(I was wishing so hard for this to be my second chance, but it took them less than a week to make the decision)
EIU: status unkown
ISU: status unkown
St. Xavier: status unkown
I just need some words of encouragement since I just received UIC's rejection letter today. . .I'm honestly on the verge of tears. I'm not sure how will I cope if I'm rejected from the other three. I'll be at least a year late graduating, that is if I ever finish my undergraduate degree. College is definitely not the best years of MY life. I honestly feel like it's high school, just thinking about is dread and I want the nightmare to end.
