Life is like a box of chocolates..


College decisions are being received daily during this time of year. Some of the decisions bring wonderful news, while others tears of disappointment. So often I hear students say – I thought I did everything right – I earned the competitive test scores, I took the rigorous classes and I have a strong GPA – what went wrong??? I wish I knew the answer. College admission decisions can leave counselors confused and frustrated. All we can try and do is stay knowledgeable of current trends and assist our students in the strive for college application perfection. However for those of us who are Christians we know that God has a plan for our lives and as unclear as they may seem right now, know that he is in control and let him guide you to the college that is the perfect fit. Below is the recent blog from Admission representative David Graves from the University of Georgia. His words are wise and meaningful.
