Figuring Out College
Courtney Cheng, Express Yourself! Reporter


Choosing a college is definitely one of the most significant life events that a teen will encounter. All the work accomplished through the beginning of senior year including grades, extracurriculars, volunteering, sports, music - everything leads up to this important decision.  Express Yourself!™ teen hosts, Youngjoo Ahn and Katelyn Darrow, who are juniors and sophomores, speak with experienced teens-high school senior, Lora Galoyan and college teens Courtney Cheng and Alex Pawlakos. Lora discusses her current application, Courtney shares college admissions from the viewpoint of movies and TV, and Alex talks about the financial ramifications for college applicants.


With each subsequent year, getting into college is becoming harder and harder because so many more people are applying each year. While some students are extremely fortunate to get into all the colleges they applied to, others won’t be so lucky. But regardless of the joys or disappointments you - or anyone else - faces during acceptance letter season, don’t take it personally. Make the most of the choices you have, don’t dwell over the letdowns, and look toward the future with an open mind.
