“5 things to tell yourself while


regretting not studying enough
and waiting for the day your
parents kick you out of your house
by proving you aren’t worth their
money or time because you didn’t
pass the college admission exams”
52

1. You can get in. Really.


College admission isn't as competitive as you
might think.
53

2. You are more than test scores.


Colleges care most about the work you've
done in high school. They look for students
who have earned strong grades in challenging
courses. They also try to learn about your
character by looking at what you do outside
the classroom..
54

3. You are in charge.


This is your big future—you're in the driver's
seat. Stay focused on what's important to you
and what you want to get out of the college
experience.
55

4. You are unique


You should base your choice on how well a
college fits your needs. Don't worry about how
it's ranked on a list or how famous it is.
56

5. You are not in this alone


Family, teachers and friends are a great
resource. Discuss your plans to go to college
with them and ask for help and advice.
