It's that time of year for high school seniors to apply and get accepted into college. For some people, like people with a 4.0 GPA, getting into college is easy, but for others, like myself, getting into college isn't just an easy stroll in the neighborhood. Here's why I hate colleges today.
1.) They are too competitive
Colleges now a days are way to competitive and only select the best of the best. For people who don't have the best GPA (like myself, I have a 3.0 GPA), they get left in the dust and treated like they are not human. Only the best of the best get accepted into colleges now a days, which leaves us people, who are considered dumb by universities and societies today, to worry about what they are going to do after high school, because college can't be a choice. I know there are community colleges, but people don't go there for a variety of reasons. One being that attending community college will make you feel like a failure because everyone can get into them and because you got rejected by all of your other colleges. I don't want to go to community college because I would feel like a failure to myself, which is why people like me have to consider other options such as working at McDonalds or joining the military.
2.) Everything has to be perfect
This kind of ties into point one, but in a little different way. What I mean by this is that colleges want everything to be turned in by a certain date and they have to be up to their standards in order for them to even take a glance at your application. So remember that bomb ass college essay you took months to prepare? Yeah, they won't even give two fucks about it if your grades aren't up to par.
3.) You can do as many activities as you want, but it all boils down to your grades
You can be an active part of all different types of activities, but if you have a shit GPA, you won't get accepted. Kinda stupid if you ask me. Yes, colleges look at the activities you took while in high school, but that all goes out the window when they see your shitty GPA.
In conclusion, these colleges need to calm down a little bit. Every time I meet a person in school now they always say "Omg, I just got in to (insert amazing college here), did you get into any colleges?" and thus I reply "No, and frankly I don't give a shit because I tried and I failed, so now I have to figure out what I am going to do after high school." I was thinking of just adventuring off into the wilderness and living out there or just working at McDonalds for the rest of my life, even though I don't want to work there. I can't change anything about my grades or test scores now so I am kinda screwed and now I must find a way to continue my future or just go ghost and live in the wilderness.
