Don’t Be Discouraged

Posted by Evelyn

It’s January and soon enough, many students will be receiving their letters of acceptance… or their letters of rejection. So for those of you that got into their college of choice, congratulations! However, for those that didn’t, don’t be discouraged!


As a CSU Long Beach Student, I must confess that my campus was not my school of choice. My first choice for college was Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, so you can imagine how disheartened and upset I was when I got that letter of rejection. But, that letter of rejection could have been the best thing that happened to me. I am now finishing up my senior year at Long Beach and have had the time of my life! I found out that I like the beach way more than I like the inland, and so who knows? If I had gone to San Luis Obispo, I could have ended up hating my college life. This could be the same for you! So don’t be upset if you do end up getting a letter of rejection, it may just be life’s way of letting you know that your first choice may not always be the best choice.
