I was accepted into UW-Madison this december. Knowing this, i stupidly slacked away my 2nd semester. I recently got a letter asking to explain my poor performance in my 2nd semester. I wrote and submitted this letter, thinking it wasn’t a big deal. I just received a letter saying my explanation was insufficient and they have now revoked my admission into the school…… That was my whole life. I dont know what Im going to do now, Im just stunned and confused. It;s not that I’m stupid, I scored a 33 on my ACT and had a 3.6 gpa in high school…I just dont get it. Maybe it’s meant to be but right now I’m stunned. I just needed to get this out.
I have quickly learned over the past few years that, if you really care then your actions will show it. Maybe you had some doubts over the course of that second semester, doubts about who you are or the path that you’re on, whatever it may be, and these have manifested themselves into reality.
Take some time right now to consider how your way of thinking or approach to your goals have affected the current. Maybe this is the universe (sounds funny, but hear me out) providing for you the best possible future outcome that would meet your subconscious desires. Maybe this is an opportunity for you to embark on a new adventure, a different type of school or an alternate path.
Though a lot of the negative events in our life are a result of counterproductive thinking and action on our behalf, there is always a path of positivity that you can take in the current to make the most of your future possibilities. We grow as people, especially when we don’t expect it, and you may be ready to start growing on an entirely different branch at this point in your life.
Smile. Loss, hopelessness and allowing yourself to feel confused are going to be the catalyst for more bad experiences. You really do get what you expect out of life, even if you’re not consciously admitting it.
This is all coming from my own opinion of course. I mean no offense.
That is so stupid…. 33 on a ACT is no small feat. So what if u slacked a little in your final days of HS.
I say use this as fuel. Go to a different school if you still want to. Make something big of yourself, then be like “Yea, that one school, they revoked my admissions!!!” He he :)
But jokes aside, I feel ya. I wasn’t able to go to my dream school either because of admissions. Glad to say that life got a lot better because of it. Goodluck
