    7. January

      "I applied to some of the best schools in the country. I cannot wait to be admitted, because being enrolled there will open so many opportunities for my post-college career. I’ve always wanted to go there!

      Wait, are they serious?! I did not get in?! I guess I am not smart enough to go there. Why did I take those classes then?! They do not want me. This means they do not like me. They don’t think I have what it takes to be successful there."

      Does this sound familiar? How do you feel reading the word ‘rejection’. Too often students align their self-worth to admissions decisions, especially ‘rejection’.
