What it comes to… (Part 2)

If you happen to be one of many seniors discouraged by rejection, please remember — while admissions offices and committees have some influence over your future, they have nothing on the definition of your life, regardless of acceptance or rejection. Remember that, at the end of the day, you are a human being, and you are far more than just a sentient combination of grades, GPAs, SAT/ACT/AP scores, and other similar statistics. Those statistics, meanwhile, are really just what they seem to be — statistics. Although they can indicate achievement that can be measured in numbers, they do not tell us much about the student behind those numbers, the person behind the applications, or the human behind the lifetime.
I may not know how your college admissions have played out or are progressing, but if you happen to be rejected by your dream college or university, please understand that, while denial from admission to a top university can be incredibly disheartening, it is not a death knell. Your life has not converged to nothing. It will be okay in the end.
I wish you the best of luck in your overture to your post-secondary years.
Sincerely,
A friend
