Keep Calm and Apply!

Just when you thought that it was too late to be accepted, Misericordia University sends you an invitation to apply. It is an exciting yet anxiety-filled moment since so many of your friends have already made their decision about college. Plus, you are not even sure if Misericordia has the programs and activities that you want.

These days, there seem to be more school options than there are college students. So, how do you know if you are making the right choice? From my decades of experience within higher education and also being a mother of two grown children, both who were given the opportunity to attend the college of their choice, the best advice that I can give is to select a reasonable number of colleges and universities that have the major you want and pay them a visit. Don’t get caught up in where your friends are going or which ones will have the most parties. Also keep in mind that the college experience is about meeting new people, exploring your interests, preparing for your future, and making connections that will last a lifetime. While you are visiting the various campuses, ask questions that are important to you and be attentive to the culture around you. See if it feels right. Most importantly - think about which colleges will give you the support and the experience that you need to achieve your future goals.
