While I wasn't accepted into and didnt attend what I had initially considered to be my "dream" school from the onset, I grew to love my alma mater. The availability of resources, support of faculty, school spirit, friendships I formed and embracing of diversity and inclusion made it enjoyable for me.
My first college as a FRESHMAN was not a good fit for me. I went to California State University at Northridge. It was / is a commuter school with no / little campus spirit. I was not happy at "CSUN." So, I transferred to a California Community College for my SOPHOMORE year. Then, as a JUNIOR, I found my "dream school" and graduated from the University of Southern California. Loved USC, the Trojan Family, and Student & Alumni spirit.
Know what your "boxes" are and make sure the school checks them. For me it was rankings, diversity, student life, name recognition, and sports. I grew up wanting to go to a school that I eventually didn't get into, but love the school I did go to.
