Chance me for UCLA, Wesleyan, Georgetown, George Washington, Tufts, American(:
*disclaimer*- i am just heading into the summer before my senior year, and its started to hit me that i have to start applying for college in the fall. One of my biggest fears is that i am tragically unqualified for any of the schools that i have been searching, and am ignorant to the fact that i will be rejected from all of them.
