    Also, speaking of study schedules, I always break down how much time I plan to spend on each activity so I feel productive and actually get things done. Funny story, but I wanted to go see Lady Bird with my best friend about two weeks before her finals (she's a college freshman), and she was complaining that she couldn't go because she needed to study for calc. I called her and basically dictated a schedule of practice tests and review that would allow her to make the movie and she was too scared of my planning to question it, so she did exactly what I said. When she ended her first semester with a 3.93 GPA and everyone was asking her for study tips, she said she owed it to my yelling at her to get her life together... lol.

    And yes, we made it to see Lady Bird. ;)

    Our school tried to encourage resilience by creating a wall of rejection on which people post the colleges they’ve been rejected from.
    It’s been 3 months and there’s nothing on the rejection wall lol. Everyone always makes these remarks about the wall, but I mean I get not wanting to share your rejection with the world... especially since failure is viewed as such a negative thing at our school. I kind of dislike the idea of the whole in general.... they’re even thinking of making it mandatory to participate in the wall of rejection and... just, no.

    @MangoLover11223 it's possible no one has been rejected yet. I applied to 10 schools, and I'm accepted to 3, deferred at 1, and still waiting on 6. So, I haven't officially been rejected yet.

    @ski_racer maybe that’s true I honestly have no idea lol, but our senior class has 400 people so I thought some people (EA??) would’ve gotten results back but honestly I’m not sure for certain lol it’s just the cringey wall that’s like... why?

    @Marg532 That sounds horrible! Hope you're okay now.

    In terms of my life right now, it's pretty okay. I'm applying to my last college in two days and my Robotics mentoring ends in ten days. I also have two retake A LOT of Calculus assignments.

    I've been deferred for a school. Should I send them my 800 Math level 2 score, or just mention it in the "deferred students" form that I have to fill out?

    I'm over the moon right now! I got a 71 on my AP Physics test yesterday, which isn't a great score but it's the best I've done all year by 11 points!! I thought I was going to do horrible since it included SHM, but I did better than I thought! I even got 14/15 on one of the free responses (the one that was SHM lmao). A 71 isn't great, but considering AP Physics has been a challenge for me this year and the tests are hard, I consider it to be a massive success. I just wanted to share this since I'm so happy right now!!!

    @18college1111 I would send a score report and mention it in the form so they know to look for it.

    As an Eagles fan, it’s been a good day!

    I’m so ready for graduation, guys. A bunch of people from my school are graduating in a week. I kinda wish I were too! I technically could have, but I think it’s better for me to take college courses next semester bc they’re all free/cheap.

    So it's day 2/3 of my 3 day weekend and yesterday was super productive but so far I haven't done anything that I scheduled to do because I laid in bed on my phone for an hour and a half this morning whOOPS! Plus I have a 4 hour guard practice tonight and I'm coming down with something so that's not going to be any kind of fun :)) I'm going to try and do some essays for different scholarship apps today, though. Wish me luck!

    I kept getting 79-ish percent on the multiple choice sections of my college chem tests but I've consistently gotten 93%+ on my short answer parts and it's super weird because it's basically the same stuff and the short answer is actually harder :))

    My first physical therapy appointment is tomorrow! Send some good vibes!
  • writergirl0316writergirl0316 Registered User Posts: 627 Member
    Apparently, most schools are releasing results on April 1st, while Ivies are March 28th, so they'll be among my very first decisions. Yikes.
