Now that most students have their applications finished, colleges are starting the selection process. This is a nerve racking time for most students. Colleges tell applicants that the decision will be made by March, which does not make this time any easier for students. So unless the student has applied early action, early decision, or if the college is rolling decision, the student will have to wait a couple months before hearing back from that college. I have only received an acceptance letter from one of the many colleges I have applied to. Waiting for the other colleges to get back to me is stressful because I just want to know where I will be spending my next four years.
