I am worried. Really worried.
So I've applied to numerous schools here in Florida, I am currently a senior, and I feel like my college applications are absolutely awful. Dreadfully terrible, really. My classes are weak, my GPA and ACT/SAT scores are average, I have no letters of recommendation, absolutely zero EC's, and no real honors/awards. My entire college application is based off of family obligations, two years of employment, and average grades. I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world like this, but it sure does feel like that here on CC. I have legacy over at UF, but their scores are miles above my reach. I have a connection with a senior admissions officer at FSU, but our communication has since ended after I completed my application.
I have a "Chance Me" thread currently open, but every day, I struggle trying to fall asleep knowing that community college might actually be an option.
I DO NOT WANT TO GO TO COMMUNITY COLLEGE!
Basically, I'm in some desperate need for encouragement. I am lost, confused, and almost ready to accept defeat. I had a talk with my guidance counselor, and she advised to me to stop wasting my money and applying to colleges that I literally have no chance in.
I would love to hear about somebody else in my position and how they are doing. Or if you know anyone in my position, what is their story like? Where do people like me end up? If you would like to see a detailed list of my stats, you can view my "Chance Me" thread. I would also appreciate if you posted on there as well.
Thank you everybody in the CC community for your advice.
