I never had a "dream school," except for Yale, which doesn't really count because I think that was only because of Gilmore Girls. I went around visiting colleges though, and Columbia was the one place I really really liked. I was always interested in living in a big city like New York, and after visiting there again, I decided that it was my #1 place to attend college at. I visited NYU also, but I liked Columbia's "campus" a lot more, NYU's collection of buildings was cooler than I thought it'd be, but it wasn't what I was looking for. Since I visited, I looked at other schools, but as I looked at them, and compared them to Columbia, I became more and more obsessed. Columbia became the closest thing to a dream school I ever had, so I applied early decision because I felt like it would maximize my chances of acceptance. Results came out two days ago at 5 PM, I was so nervous in the week leading up to it. I was pretty sure I wasn't going to make it due to my terrible terrible terrible GPA, but was hopeful that my math competition experience and art stuff. I am also the only one from my magnet program to apply to SEAS early, I was hoping so hard that they had to want to make sure they got one of us. They had a countdown on their page, and I sat here all the numbers reached zero reached 0 and this showed up...
Anyways, for anyone who likes to guess, I will put the results and the rest of the post in a spoiler! ^_~

Jk, at first I was like ok, this is fine, I expected this. I even chatted this guy I know at Columbia and told him I got rejected. I also had my 8 year old brother in my room for moral support. After around 15 minutes though, it started to hit me, and I was really sad. I didn't go to school yesterday and the day before either, I felt pretty sick. I also went invis on AIM and gtalk and ignored everyone's texts and stuff. My mom was in a meeting and called/texted me but I think she figured it out after I ignored her lol. Then I went on the college confidential results boards and looked at the people who got in there (DON'T DO THIS) and I raged silently at affirmative action. I am still raging silently at affirmative action. Sux2be asian. Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I know Columbia isn't the only school out there, but after a while it started to feel like it. I just got rejected from Caltech too today, and it really sucks. I know I'll probably be happy wherever I end up anyways, I'm just hoping that it's not at my state school. State school would be okay too, I just wanna try something new.
Going on facebook was also a bad idea too, the FIRST FUCKING THING I SAW was "columbia 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!" or some shit like that and it had like 100 likes and comments and I just wanted to cry again. Then I scrolled down and there were a bunch of UPENNIS 2016!!!!!!!!! and I was like oh god get me out of here but I didn't close it in time to see the status of the other person who got into Columbia. Congrats to you guys, but I am still very sad. :'( Getting rejected is a terrible terrible feeling.
Anyways, no more QQ
To those of you who got into your dream/first choice school, congratulations!
To my fellow rejectees who just had their dreams shattered and crushed and stomped on and beat up, hwaiting!! We'll all get into great schools that we will love, and life will hopefully go on.
Time for some inspirational kpoopz!

Never give up, I know this song isn't really that great but I liked the upbeat sound to it and the gospel chorus. As long as you can ignore Bang Yong Guk's I'M BACK IN DA SKUL BACK IN DA SKULLLL part, the lyrics are pretty relatable too.
NEVER GIVE UP!~~~~~~
Bonus congrats to the new leader of T-ara!
