College admissions is a crap shoot.
We’ve known this all along, we’ve repeated it over and over, and now we are experiencing it. Our Eldest daughter has been accepted, not accepted and, wait-listed and, just like everyone says, not really sure why one and not the other.
We are fortunate that there was not clear number 1 school for her, but still, it’s hard and I know that her pride has taken a few hits. Yeah, it’s easy to say this us character building and part of life, but while one is in it — kinda sucks.
There are many young folks today, whether by choice or circumstance who are not playing the college admissions game, but for those who are, God, seriously, in Your mercy, let it be over soon.
See you tomorrow.
