Decisions Update #2
So, MIT Decisions came out today. I was deferred to Regular Decision. So, I guess it wasn’t a yes, but it wasn’t a no. I can live with that. I mean, to be deferred, you need to be one of the top of the non-accepted Early Action people.
I can live with this. Just have to wait until March to find out for sure what is going to happen. Now, just to wait for Monday, for UChicago’s decision.
So, I guess I just need to face the facts. I was denied from Caltech. The admissions blog I check religiously. The place I could wander around for hours, and never get bored. The school that always seemed better and better for me. Gone.
I guess I could have predicted this. I mean, I did not get a perfect on my ACT. I come from a small school. I didn’t do amazing in anything, comparatively. And then, my counselor told me something that really seemed to sink into me.
Is this fate? Maybe I was never made to go to Caltech. I mean, while I was there, the song “The Show Goes On” got stuck in my head, and reminded me of Caltech ever since. But this song isn’t about happiness or acceptance. Its a song about moving on and getting over things. And I guess thats what I have to do.
Or was this politics? It irks me that those who come from better schools, go to better schools. That just because I am from a small town, and a small school, that I am discriminated against. I’m sure someone from Fenwick or New Trier made it into Caltech. But why not me? Its a sad world we live in if this is the reason. If all anyone is really interested in is money.
But I guess I just need to move on. There is no point in mourning over something that was not meant to be. I can just hope for the best in my other two decisions coming up.
