Disappointment (college applications)

Recommended Posts

I applied to five schools (RISD, Pratt, Mass art, New Paltz, Syracuse). First I get into Pratt, then New paltz, then syracuse, then Mass art. Now I am waiting on RISD, my first choice, but what happens? They decide not to accept me. I hate this shit. Its as though they were able to abbreviate all of my hard work to two words - "not accepted." The worst part is that I was relatively confident that I would get in. I had an overall GPA of 92, a 1280 on my sat's, and I figured my portfolio must at least be decent to have gotten into the other four schools.

 

Feeling good only to get knocked down.... oh well, so much for dreams and aspirations.

 

I just feel like saying fuck college and getting a job doing manual labor.

Grades at my highschool are out of 100, so a 92 converts to a 3.6 or 3.7 I believe.

If at first you dont succeed...

 

Take a year away and apply again, but do something great in your year "off" including go to RISD again and tell all the admissions people you can about your plans.... undergrad programs looooooove that shit.

 

I'm not sure how well transferring will work into a place like RISD, but it can be a good way to approach liberal arts schools, provided you really kick ass your freshman year.

 

Good luck.

sonik, thanks for the words. I am actually thinking about trying to transfer after a year, although Pratt and Syracuse both seem like quality schools.
