It was really stressful but actually taught me a lot about myself. I’m excited to move onto something bigger and pursue my education and meet new people, but i will miss NDB a lot. UCSB kind of. I will miss always talking to my family and friends about my life and unwinding with them, I’m really close to my family so I’m not ready to leave them. I would have started my college apps even sooner and spent more time achieving balance between my school work and personal life.

The college process was well spread out for me because I started summer of my junior year. Though I will miss my friends Im very excited to see what is in store for me at college. I have heard back and been accepted to LMU and Chapman but I am not confirmed to any college yet. Im going to miss how much my friends and family make me feel respected, appreciated, and happy. I never tried taking the ACT and I think it would have been interesting to see what I wouldve gotten compared to the SAT.

The college process for me was confusing and stressful but also a lot of fun getting to visit the colleges. I am very excited to end high school and get to branch out in College but Im going to miss my friends here at NDB. I have heard from a few of my top schools and I am super excited about them and I am still hearing back from a few more.
I’m going to miss the connection I have with my friends and family, along with my bed and puppies.
I would have done more research on my colleges and looked more at the East Coast.

The college process was pretty easy. I was able to figure out what I wanted in a school right away, so that really helped me decide where I wanted to apply.  Im excited to end high school but Im also sad that Ill be leaving all my friends and family when I go to college.  Yes, Ive heard back from most colleges and gotten in to all the schools at the top of my list.  Ill miss spending time with my friends and family every day and especially my dog. If I could redo the college process, I would apply to more reach schools because I could have gotten in to more if I tried.

I have heard back from a couple schools i am excited about but i am not ready to make a decision!  i will miss my family and friends and the familiarity of my neighborhood, but i am excited to learn about a new place.  i would have applied to more schools, if i could.

The college process for me was pretty easy. Because I already had my mind set on attending either Gonzaga or LMU, it made my college process easier for me. I am so excited to end high school so I can start a new chapter in my life. I have been accepted into all 7 of the schools I applied to, and will be attending LMU in the fall!  I will miss the familiarity of home the most. If I could do anything differently through high school, I would have been more prepared for the SAT because having a good score is really important for the college application process.
