I remember having a fight with my mother aboutApr 27 2015Chemical Engineering
I remember having a fight with my mother about the college application. She had certain expectation about how a personal statement should be written despite having no experience of applying to a US college. I did my research and talked to my high school teachers and counselors, then sent out the application. It's very easy to lose yourself in such an intensive process. Be yourself and try to keep everything in perspective. It's OK if you get in. It's OK if you don't. Getting into college is only a chapter in your life. What you get out of life will depend a lot more on your own motivation and hard work, and sometime luck.
