Use restraint when discussing your college admissions details with friends


Friday, May 11, 2012
After searching for a college for many months, it can be hard to resist sharing the news that you have found your ideal school. You may be so passionate about this college that you want to tell your friends everything about your campus visit and all the opportunities you will have once you enroll. Unfortunately, your excitement cannot guarantee that you will receive an acceptance letter from this college.

In a time where people seem to share their every thought on social media Web sites and blogs, it is all too tempting  to provide your friends with frequent updates on your college admissions status. Before you broadcast all your college updates, bear in mind that you may receive a rejection letter from one or more of your top choices. If this happens, are you prepared or willing to answer questions about your rejection? While you may welcome the understanding advice of a parent or counselor, do you really want to deal with your friends’ constant queries?

To avoid unpleasant conversations, consider being a little more private about your college search. While it is fine to talk with your friends about the schools you may be interested in attending, don’t feel like you have to share every admissions development.

Most importantly, keep this information offline. After all, you wouldn’t want officials from the schools you have applied to reading about how excited you are about your first choice school.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800774102-ADNFCR
