Should I Apply To This College?

BeaniegirljujuzBeaniegirljujuz 6 replies11 threads Junior Member
I want to apply to this college, but I don't want my friend to think that I am copying her. The college is in a great location for the career that I want to try to work in. Is it childish to think this way? Should I still apply?

    Develop an application list that makes sense for your situation (academics, financial needs etc.). Your list should be created independently of the application lists of your friends/classmates. If there is some overlap, that is fine.

    Why would it be considered copying? Your friend should be happy you are applying to the same college.
