Well, I just got my first denial letter fresh in the mail today. The worst part is that I considered Valparaiso University to be one of my safeties/low matches. I'm not particularly upset that I got denied to this particular college, I'm now just thrown off on my chances of admission to my top choices, some of which had even higher standards than the one I was just denied to.
32 English, 25 Math, 23 Reading, 25 Science
Try not to get too jealous of my GPA, please: 2.78 out of 4.0
Community service, Career oriented volunteering.
Here's the colleges I've applied to: (In order of top choice to least perferrable)
-University of Illinois @ Urbana-champaign (I know what you're thinking, I know.)
-Miami University, Oxford, OH.
-Ohio State University
-Ohio University, Athens, OH.
-Bradley University, Peoria IL
-University of Illinois at Chicago
-Southern Illinois University
My recent denial letter just brought the whole reality of "I might not go to a university".
What do you guys think?
