I love her, but she doesn't feel the same. How can I change that?

I've known this girl for 3 years now and I told her I have feelings for her about a year into our friendship. She said she only think of me as a friend and nothing more. So after that I avoided her for a while, however a few months later she decided to talk to me again on msn. I tried to be friends with her but I still avoided her at school, Then she complains that she doesn't see me in school. So we met up at school and it was from that point on that I fell for her again. I walked her home everyday after school, I gave her gifts every now and then, we chat on MSN everyday and I gave her a really special birthday by taking her to places that neither of us has been. She said it was the best birthday she has ever had. We also went to places like ice skating, hiking, museums and movies just the two of us. I pour my heart out for her and gave her whatever she wants (she didn't ask for much) and more. Even her mum likes me although her mum didn't really like me at the start but as time passes she changed her mind. Her mum even mocked us for starting a relationship so young (18 years old). It wasn't until recently that I tried to defined the relationship. She told me that we are just friends and she will never feel the same way I feel about her. She also said that she has already made it clear at the beginning that she only thinks of me as a friend. Hoever she said she did like me at some point in this 'friendship', but decided that she wants to focus on her studies now and worry about relationship later on in life. I told her I'd wait for her however long it will take but she said that she will never feel the same way for me and we will never be in a relationship. She said she was sorry for leading me on and hurting me. I am confused.

I love her, but she doesn't feel the same. How can I change that?
