College Acceptance Time is Important for a Young Millennial
We are in the midst of College acceptance time, with many high school seniors, and young Millennials throughout the United States, making the ever-so important decision about what college, university and secondary institution of higher learning they will spend the next four years of their lives at, by the famous May 1, deadline, set by all schools, so students’ parents can send in the deposit to their son or daughter’s choice, thus holding their spot in the chosen school’s next class.
Some students have already chosen where they will go, and know what school they are going to attend, hence their parents having already sent in their money.
Other students may have also known what school they wanted to attend long ago, and took advantage of applying to school’s that allowed students to apply for their Early Action or Early Decision admission methods, which are meant for students who will immediately accept a school’s offer of admission if the institution grants it to them. These schools also top the students’ list of schools that they want to attend, hence the reason why they make the commitment of which school to attend so early in the year. These deadlines are usually Oct. 1, or Nov. 1, depending on the school, and usually consist of a student applying to one school during the admissions process, however it may be more, depending on how many schools the student is interested in Early Action or Early Decision.
Other students might decide to take the more-and-more common-now-a-days-gap-year, if they did not get into the school that they hoped to get into, were wait-listed at their favorite and number one school, want to apply to other schools and see which ones they get into if they don’t like their choices the first go around. Students may also go abroad as an exchange student for a year, and defer their enrollment at a school that they got into in order to weigh their options.
While there are those students who want to go to the next level of education, and go through the college admission and acceptance process, others might be done with school, and want to immediately enter the workforce to make money, continue with their family’s business in order to help support their family, go to trade school and learn a skill like how to build or repair a car, or not go to school right away, but rather enjoy and experience life.
All in all, all high school seniors, who are either 17, and about to be the young Millennial age of 18, or who already are 18, or are turning the monumental age of 18, and fall in the beginning of the age range Millennials fall under, make one of the most important choices around this time of year that they will ever make, thus far in their lifetime.
