I just saw the officer list for one of the new clubs started at my school, and y’all will not believe this. • 4 presidents • 4 vice presidents • 2 secretaries • 9 more people in officer positions that aren’t even necessary. This is for one club. ONE.
All these people are in the same friend group too, and I know half of then weren’t even in clubs until this year (junior year) and they’re already presidents/vice presidents??? Were not even in the bay area why are you acting like this???
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry cause I’m here busting my ass over here trying to make a community project work from scratch while these kids don’t do anything and get the title of “president”.
not trying to downplay your efforts here, just here to tell you not to let college admissions take too big of a mental toll on you.
from a freshman who's now going to college, I can almost guarantee that you'll look back on all this and realize how stupid all this wondering if your sat is high enough or if APs will improve your chances is. it's almost like a mental switch that will be flipped off once the whole process is over.
i'm not telling you to stop overthinking because I know how much ruminating and stressing I did, but just keep in mind that any failures you encounter during college admissions or whatever you do wrong isn't going to be permanently seared into your mind.
you probably think you'll shrivel up from severe depression (or even kill yourself--i know i kind of did) if you end up in your safety, but just a few months after your college results, you'll feel way better and even realize how absurd your mindset was in the first place. you'll be thinking about what you want to do in college rather than mull over how much of a failure you are for not getting into harvard.
So I paid for the college board score-send to Dartmouth, but the scores aren't showing up on my receipt.
For example, when I sent my scores to Duke, it said "SAT without Essay August 27, 2022 - Score: 1550"
but the area for Dartmouth is empty. So were my scores sent or not??
