Applying to college? My experience

I recently applied to complete my b/s in special education. I guess I didn’t realize how the admissions process works. So, I’m blogging about it for anyone who may be curious.

When I applied for my a/a in general education I had no clue about the applications process. I wasn’t exactly enthused about this college because it was actually the second one that I applied to. That being said, I don’t remember anything about the process.

My first worry about this application wa,s was it accessible? The answer, surprizingly was yes. All six pages of it. Which I completed.

Then, comes the waiting part. Was I excepted? I couldn’t wait to find out. What felt like forever had passed before I got the letter. However it was only a few days. I was excepted. *dances*

When my mom opened it she tried to tell me that I wasn’t excepted. Then, she said “April Fools!” I said: “This isn’t the time for jokes, and this isn’t April.” She thought that was funny.

Then came sending in my college transcript. I tried several times, but couldn’t get it to work. Finally today I figured out that the college was trying to charge me a fee. Note to all future college students. When requesting a college transcript keep plenty of money in the bank for this reason. Thank goodness I had the money. 🙂

Then, I had to switch my financial aid over. That turned out to be more accessible than I thought it was. All this time of having the previous college’s financial aid office help me. *sigh* Anyway, I got it all done, and I’m proud to say that I’m now a college student.

I’m still so excited to be a college student, and I can’t wait to continue my journey. If you’re a new college student see this link. I wish I’d had something around when I first started college. 🙂
