    Pixie Dust please..

    So I got a letter from my only college choice today telling me that I was not accepted. This is not good as I did not apply to any other colleges (this is the one I really wanted to go to) So now I need some pixie dust to help me figure out what I am going to do next semester... Thanks!

    I hope things start to get sorted for you, i'm a firm believer in 'things happen for a reason'. I'm sure it means there is a wonderful opportunity waiting for you somewhere else, good luck x

    Sorry to hear your news. Did they say why, and is it something you can work on and re-apply next year? I didn't get the grades I needed to go to the University I had set my heart on, so took a year out,worked to get some money, re-sat my exams and went a year later. When my brother was in a similar situation he went through what is known in the UK as 'clearing' - when you phone round lots of places to see where could take you. Do they have a similar system in the US? I also agree with the above - most things happen for a reason, and I am sure it will all work out in the end.

    I know you are disappointed. Don't give up on your dreams. It may be that you just have to work a little harder to make them a reality.

    Keep your head up. My friends brother didn't get accepted into his first choice, and like you, he didn't apply any where else. But, then out of the blue, the president of Yale called him and got a full ride scholarship. anything can happen :]

    Glad to hear your good news! How fun for you! I am still waiting to hear about the doctoral program I want. Just waiting is killing me but my time isn't their time!

    Glad you are getting some good financial aid also!
