Waiting For The College Decision


You have applied to college and are waiting for decisions. Especially if you have your heart set on a dream school, it is hard not to be overwhelmed with feelings of fear and dread. How can you manage the fear so it does not destroy your peace of mind? If you have read Hold On To Your Hat! you will have already applied to some great "comfort schools" that have favorable admission rates for students with your credentials, so as you await the news, stay calm and optimistic and remember that:
1. There are many roads to a happy life, not just one.  Winston Churchill said, "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
2. Whether the dream school or not, embrace and enjoy the college that you ultimately attend! Like Randy Pausch said in his Last Lecture (, "It's not about the cards you're dealt but how you play the hand."
3. If the outcome is negative, don't take it personally, take it in stride.  Remember Grandpa Parker: "You never know your luck!"
