My college list is probably not reasonable. I know I’m at a significant disadvantage. I wasn’t allowed to do many things to further my education. I feel disappointed about my high school journey but it is what it is. I can only focus on the future now.
Are there any decent colleges that I should know about? Any advice? I think I’m going to make changes to my college list. Maybe look into some liberal arts colleges.
