I’m an eensie bit scared about this college application thing. Like most things that seem far off, it feels like you have ages to get everything done. Ages until you find yourself one month before all applications are due and with only two applications filled out! That’s NOT counting transcripts! I am so freaked out right now. I have like…. three more schools that I’m applying to.
I applied to FIT yesterday. At first, I didn’t want to apply to FIT because it seemed too mainstream. Last night, though, I decided that since it’s the art school with the best web design, they might just know what they’re doing. And Calvin Klein went there. And I have a lot of Calvin Klein pants. So that’s pretty cool. Plus, you know, I’m sure their photography program isn’t all that bad, either.
Now the only schools I have left to apply to are Brooklyn College, Pratt, and School of Visual Arts. And this is why I’m scared. I printed out the transcript form for FIT last night and I brought it to my guidance counselor this morning. She didn’t say it, but she had this look on her face that said, “OH MY GOD. YOU ARE GETTING THIS IN SO LATE. DIDN’T YOU KNOW THAT YOUR APPLICATIONS HAD TO BE DONE LIKE A YEAR AGO?? YOU ARE GOING TO DIE. YOU ARE GOING TO DIIIIIEEEE!!!!” …. Or I might just be paranoid.
Still. I really need to get all my applications in. AND visit colleges. I went to Pratt’s National Portfolio Day in New York about a week ago. But that was a waste. I only made it to Pratt since every other school had like seven hundred million people in its line. I really should have just scheduled private portfolio reviews. Like I’m going to have to do now. And I’ll have to do that by like tomorrow. (FREAKED OUT.)
