Well I got into Loyola today, and that officially ends the college process for the next month. I will have to wait until about mid-May for Johns Hopkins to tell me if they can accept me off their waitlist. In the meantime I will be sending in the $800 deposit to George Washington.
I really reflected today and decided that I will not give in to the Westfield mentality surrounding GWU. It's a great school, especially for what I want to major in. The location is perfect. And they clean freshmen rooms on Tuesday. End of story. I don't care what other people think, that they think it's a second-tier school, because it isn't. If I don't get in to Johns Hopkins I'll go to GWU, excel and get the 4.0 GPA, get a master's degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (best international relations graduate program in the world), and then go to some top law school. End of story.
Phew...now I feel better.
So here's the final college list:
5 Acceptances - The George Washington University, Loyola College in Maryland, American University, Dickinson College, Goucher College.
1 Waitlist - The Johns Hopkins University.
3 Rejections - Georgetown University, Tufts University, The College of William and Mary.
