Every young student always dreams of gaining admission into their dream university. The anxiety could be killing, especially if you have to wait for months to receive an answer from the university you have applied to.
Now that the hard work of filling out applications and writing essays is over, you may think all that’s left to do is to wait anxiously for an admission decision about your college future.When the work of filling out applications and essays is over, there are some essential steps you should still take, even though it seems like everything is finished.
Even if you’ve turned everything in, however, there are still some things you can do to improve your chances of admission, and to keep your mind occupied while you wait.
Here are just a few more things that could keep you calm and busy while you wait for that response.
4. Don’t brag excessively about it.
While it is good to share your dreams and use the tongue to confess positive things which you desire, it is essential that you do not brag excessively about it.
One of the hardest parts of this waiting game is making sure you don’t build up your top schools too much. Overhyping schools means thinking you’ll definitely get accepted, thinking a certain school’s program is the only program suited for you or thinking being accepted into a certain school will make or break your entire life. This is definitely something to avoid doing when waiting on those decision letters.
5. Channel your energy elsewhere.
There are so many things a youth can do. You have the energy and the sharp brain. You can channel all that somewhere else. Instead of sitting down, pondering over nothing essential, go out there and volunteer somewhere. You could also channel your energy into making your hobby bigger than it is. I for example started a business with my hobby.
6. Think Positively.
Finally, do not underestimate the power of positive thinking. Whatever you do, be optimistic. If it works out, good and fine, and if it doesn’t, no harm in trying again.
