It's a well-thought out, organized process of self-discovery...not.

The Real College Application Process

June: This is gonna be easy

July: I have plenty of time

Eh, I'll wait until the Common App comes out on August 1. I'll still have a whole month to write my supplements.

August: Eh, not really feeling it now...

It's a great time to create college photo collages! This counts as being productive, right?

September: Checking in w/teachers about writing LORs

"Hey...remember me? That kid in your math class last year...? Might you still possibly be up for writing a page of nice things about me?"

October: OH SHOOT SOMETHING'S DUE

I didn't realize applying early decision meant that I had to get my application in early!

November: More supplements???

Why on earth did I apply to so many schools?!

December: DEADLINES

DEADLINES, DEADLINES, EVERYWHERE.

January: Interviews

Wait, there's more to do after I submit my application?!

February: Nail-biting begins

In which I second guess everything I wrote in my application essays and everything I said in alum interviews and whether or not it'll be enough to get me in and WHY CAN'T APRIL 1 BE HERE ALREADY

March: DECISIONS ARRIVE

It's a roller coaster of a month. My friends and I get rejected from schools we expected to get into, we get in to some colleges we didn't expect to.

April: Where should I go?

Why do they only give us a month to decide where to spend the next four years of our lives?

May: Relief

Statement of Intent to Register? Check. Deposit? Check. Relief about finally being done with this crazy process? Check.
