Being rejected from your top school doesn’t feel okay. Words to describe the feeling? Horrible. Disappointed. Worthless. Heartbroken. Honestly, I saw it coming. I really did, but then again I didn’t actually know until I got the decision letter. It’s not easy to talk about because I pictured myself at this school. I thought that it was the school for me. But the admissions office obviously thought that I wasn’t a fitted student to represent their school. It hurts. I wanted it so bad, and there’s nothing I can do about it. And I cannot let those who got accepted, pity me. I want to be happy for them. I really do. But I look at all the wrong things that I must have done to earn that rejection. I’m picky because I do not want to end up transferring there, how would I even know if I’d get accepted as a transfer? What’s the point? The only option left is to settle for less, and it seems impossible for me to do it. I’m not proud of the other schools I got into. I can’t see myself there compared to this one. I just feel like I didn’t work up to my full potential.
