(If you competed in any Central Valley VEX Robotics Competitions and you recognize me, yes I did set up and host those, I'm sorry if I yelled at you)
Any who, if you're this far, thank you for taking a second out of time to waste it on me, MUA HA HA. Anyways, here's my 2 cents about college.
MY 2 CENTS
The society we live in is certainly a weird one. We work our entirely lives to eventually work for another person just to fund our retirement, and we have to convince ourselves that we like it.
Besides the point, applying to college is a step in the right direction, but don't do it for the wrong reasons. Far too many students fall susceptible to the peer pressure that they have to attend a 4-year university just because their friend are, only to find that those friends are doing it just because their friends are. Join college because you have an affinity for a certain subject and you genuinely want to learn more. Don't spend tens of thousands of dollars on a college solely based off the fact that you want to "see what you're interested in." Again, a CC can give you the same experience at a fraction of the cost for the same conclusion. At any rate, if you're reading over this quickly because you don't care, I wish you the best of luck this upcoming application season, and all the other application seasons, but to this one in particular because of the uncertainty due to COVID. If I could come out of the college process unscathed (kind of) you will survive. And your #1 school does not define who you are because you will do just as well if you go to your state school or your #2.
