Class of 2011

CLASS OF 2011


As you all know, I am a senior this year and just had my first day as one. I have to admit, it was awesome. I swell with glee whenever I heard the word "Senior" or words "Class of 2011". I'm also sadden since I shall be leaving my school and moving on towards the big, bad, cruel world. I'm terrified I am going to fail in college and forget everything I am taught. I guess I shall wait and see. If any of you have some tips for senior year, like how to and when to go at scholarships/loans, I am more than willing to listen. I need you guys as support *cute*

My senior experience:

-Not having to wear uniforms anymore was both the weirdest and coolest thing ever
-I got to know people in my class a lot better
-excited to move on, I knew I'd miss my classmates, but I also knew that the world had more to offer

My tips for senior year:

-Figure out what you want to be, personally and professionally
-Find out what you're interested in, to start with. Like, for me I always had found architecture interesting, and I liked to draw, and I had been doing 3D stuff for quite a while. At first I wanted to be an architecture major, but then I realized that while i liked the kind of math involved, there was just too much of it for me. So I went to 3D art, because it offered the same 3D aspect, but required less math.

On preparation for college:

-Work hard to find a college that offers -exactly- what you want. You might not find -every- single thing, but you can come close. It's so worth it, especially when you know you'll be spending the next 4 years calling it home
-Don't wait to look for scholarships. I started applying for the as soon as senior year. Do whatever you can to avoid loans, take a job and work if you have to.

You'll probably pick different colleges all throughout the year. Trust me, I went through 3 before I finally decided. Keep looking instead of closing to new options; you never know, a new one may bump this one off the list.

No, you are just applying to the school when you apply. After you apply, they send you a letter letting you know if you got in or not, then you have to make the decision of where you want to go.
