Non-kpop related rant with some foul language. I just needed to release some emotions. You guys don't have to read this card Why do I have the worst luck ever? Well I signed up to retake the SAT next month but apparently my registration never went through or something so when I checked the website today I found that I was never registered for the test. So I went to register again only to find out that all testing locations within a fifty mile radius of where I live are full. Every. Single. F-ing. One of them. I'm a senior in high school, I'm practically done with my college applications and I just needed to touch up my personal statements and take the damn sat again but then this shit happens. so now I have to take the test in November since my previous test score wasn't all that fabulous (it wasn't horrible, but I can do better) but applications are due on November 30th for UCs (I live in California). The test is on November 7th and it takes 2-2.5 weeks for the sat results to be released. That's cutting it way too close for comfort. I just don't know what to do right now. I'm having a total break down and I just want to hit something or cry.
OK, yeah. I'm crying. It probably seems like I'm making too big of a deal about this but I just. I need to get into one of the top 3 ucs otherwise I'll never hear the end of it from my family. They call me the family disappointment and I really wanted to prove to them that while I'm not a fucking genius like my stupid cousins, I'm not a total idiot either. Ughhhhhh. Ok, I've stopped crying now. sorry this card turned out so long. I just needed a place to rant where the people who see me break down (probably) don't know me in person.
Omg applying for the UC systems are the WORST I feel you. I had to take my ACT in a weird high school waaay far away from me too, but for some reason I think it actually helped me? Like all the stress and chaos just made me focus and do well even though I felt like I did really poorly. Also this probably totally isnt what you want to hear BUT if something doesnt work out and you dont get into your first choice with UCs, its really really easy to transfer within the UC system. Go to whatever you get into that you love the most and then you can move on up to any school! My friend started off at Irvine and went on to graduate from Berkley!! Which one are you hoping for?!
Its okay...*pats your back* I may not be a senior but I know how it feels like when you want to prove to your family that you are more what they think you are...
@kpopandkimchi I'm hoping to get into San Francisco, LA, or San Diego (in that order) since they have the best medical schools out of the UCs. I wouldn't mind going out of state either but since tuition is wayyyy cheaper for people living in California I'd rather just stay in state
