Bad News

I had a major disappointed this weekend. My first choice college Vanderbilt University put me on their wait list. This was a big surprise supposing I am ranked number one in my class and have above a 4.0 GPA. My ACT score is not the highest but it is a solid 29. I was really shocked since Vandy's class average ACT last year was a 29 and my GPA is above last year's average.

As most people know scholarships are a great way to pay for college. I understand it is there money to giveaway but if your going to give out a scholarship at least have a better essay question than:

Why are you applying for this scholarship?
Why do you want to receive this scholarship?
What is your principle motivation for applying for this scholarship?

I hate these questions. They are dumb, and all have the same answer for everyone. People applying for scholarships WANT THE MONEY. Why else would people spend time applying for the scholarship.
