How to Deal With Stupid People: Incompetent, inefficient, busy, or all the above? Not everyone has nor can afford a college admissions counselor during the process of applying to college, and, while the stress and anxiety of deadlines might make you consider plagiarizing your guidance counselor’s required letter of recommendation, it’s better to just deal with your guidance counselor or teacher directly.
I run this blog out of personal fun with my only mission being to provide helpful, insightful, and, above all honest information about the college admissions process, Columbia University, and my experiences.
I come from a background of not having the most abundant of opportunities to succeed, nor chase my dreams, but I think, in life, it's always quality over quantity, and taking full advantage of the opportunities you are given -- and I hope this blog shows that.
I will admit I never imagined attending an Ivy League university, nor living in the city of my dreams (NYC), but here I am, and I did it with no experience nor help to achieve it. And I want to help anyone who is in the situation I was in, and to prove that getting what you want -- out of college or life -- is totally achievable.
Disclaimer: While I do consider myself experienced in college admissions, I am not perfect nor do I claim to be. In retrospect, my hard work was combined with a large amount of luck. While I do think there are no ways to guarantee an admission into any college (even safeties), there are an abundance of opportunities to try your damnedest.
