The best things in life aren’t always precisely planned. The college process is certainly a good example of this. Though you may think you know exactly what you want in a college, stay open to different options. Your ideal school choice going into the process will often change—you might make a “180” with your decision once all is said and done. Often the best college fit isn’t exactly what you had envisioned. Keep your mind open, be flexible—you might be surprised at what you’ll discover about yourself. One guarantee is that the process will have plenty of ups and downs, but in the end, you will find your school. So…get ready for your next big chapter and try to enjoy the ride!
