Hi Princess,

I'm not sure what the options are for in Nigeria, but perhaps my United States based advice will help (or maybe you're in the US).

I would advise you to attend a local community college with the goal of transferring into a university after two years. It is my opinion that these transfers are the cheapest way to attain a diploma from said university. When I attended UC Berkeley, I was unaware of transfers, but then made a friend in my junior year, who transferred from a local community college, and I felt that she fit right in. Yes, she had to work harder than the other junior students, as she needed to get acclimated to our university and catch up on a few areas, but she got better GPAs than I did, paid much less for her degree, and she graduated on-time. Perhaps you can look at this path and see if it's a viable option for you.

Anyways, I wish you the best of luck, and please be aware that transfers are possible. :)

Dont be discouraged!, Keep applying and if you see a trend of schools your applying to that do not accept you, you may want to re-adjust the list of potential schools. There are many of opportunities for higher education. You will succeed!

There are ways to get connected with the university in order to determine your status for re-applying for the next year, however, there are many schools out there to chose from so don't be discouraged! Having options in mind for other schools also allows you to see what else is out there because there could be a better school out there that you are unaware, fit your preferences!

There's also the option of going to another university and build up your grades, campus participation, and recommendations if you would like the option of transferring throughout your college life.

Speaking with your guidance counselor can really help determine what went wrong on your application and why you did not get in, so that you can improve for the next time that you re-apply

That depends on the college. Some colleges have an appeal process. You can also try to do well somewhere else then try to transfer into the university of your choice. Good luck!

It really will depend on how close you where from being accepted. You can always reach out to the institution and ask for insight into why you were declined. I would wan to have a good understanding of this before I would reconsider spending money to re-apply at that school.

Hopefully you will get into one of your other options.

Best of luck

Thank you, I really appreciate! princess A.

I would suggest reaching out to one of the Advisers of the college you are trying to attend and see what they would suggest. This would give you some insight in my opinion as to what the college looks for or is looking for. Hope that this helps!

Don't be discouraged, keep on applying if one school denied you does not mean all other schools will denied you as well, you can start with taking some courses at a community college and gradually move into a college/university to continues or if there is a specific school you want to go just re-apply again and again even though will cause you time but other option will be looking for some school that is similar and do your course work from there, everybody normally pick couple school they want to go to as a more option rather than 1 or 2. So keep you hopes up and you will make it.

Thank you, I really appreciate! princess A.

I would suggest going to a smaller, less competitive college for a semester, maintaining a 4.0 GPA and then re-applying.

If you were deferred, you might check the colleges website to find out how often students get admitted after deferral. It can be quite rare at the most competitive schools.

Don't be discouraged! Not everyone gets into their first choice college. It doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with you there may have been many different factors as to why you didn't get in. Reach out to the University and ask them why you were denied. There are so many things that go into getting into a college and there are so many to get into. Don't worry you will get into a college! Good luck!

Thank you, I really appreciate! princess A.
