I’m officially back in Ohio. I’m not too happy about it – I have about a thousand cons and a few pros. My number one pro? I get to sleep in my own fantastic bed.
- College search
- Applying to colleges
- Denison visit
- Hanover visit
- Overnight at Kenyon
- Scholarship search
- Read Angela’s Ashes & The Kite Runner
- Do homework that corresponds with above books
- Work on a poster for Freshman mentoring
- Get a physical
- Tennis conditioning & practices
- ACT Prep
- ACT – Sept 11
- SAT – Oct 9
- Sign up for online college classes
- Start volunteering
- Shadow at a library
- Write a 2500-word story
And almost all of this has to be done within the next 25 days. It’s not just a self-imposed goal, sadly. School starts in 25 days, and I have so many school-related tasks I think I’m going to burst.
Or have my head explode like it did when I left the theater showing Inception – but that’s a different story.
Oh, and I guess I can make another list here, despite how long the above one is. I need to show how quickly my list of colleges to apply to has changed.
- Kenyon College
- Denison University
- Hanover College
- Miami University: Oxford Campus
- Ohio State University: Columbus Campus
- University of Cincinnati
- University of Dayton
- University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg
I’m hoping that I’ll stick to this list, but I’ll have to continue to look over them and make sure that these are the ones I want to apply to. Although, I know that truthfully, I only want to apply to one college for sure.
The other colleges that I had typed out in my original post – Fairleigh Dickinson, Wittenberg, College of Idaho, and Syracuse – I couldn’t remember when I listed colleges I was interested in. When I finally realized that, I had to simply admit their lack of importance to me and take them off the list.
Hopefully I’m right about my interest in Hanover and Denison – I’ll write about how the visits went when I get around to making them happening.
As of now, however, I’ve got to go begin the Early Decision 1 application process for Kenyon. Wish me luck!
