My SAT score and why I probably won’t get into BU

I woke up Thursday Morning excited to see how well I did. I didn’t expect 1500, but I was thinking maybe at least a 1300. Let me tell you, I was terribly disappointed, well underwhelmed really. I was angry, and I kinda cried because I knew what my score meant. No BU.

I got 1180. That’s it. And I got a 17/24 on my essay which I’m proud of.

Before I say anything else, I know I can take my SAT again, and I will when I’m ready. Probably in August so I have July to seriously prepare.

I don’t want to go into college applications in a few months expecting to be rejected from Boston University, but I also don’t want to be expecting to get into their honors program. I’m honestly expecting to be waitlisted, which isn’t terrible, it’s just not ideal. My dream is BU. That could be temporary because I’m indecisive, but right now that’s what I want. I want to study English at BU in cold Boston.

I have a 3.9 GPA, so my SAT score doesn’t really reflect who I am as a student, which sucks, but what can I do. I’ll take it again and hope for the best.

I just want 1300, and I’m going to have to work hard to get there.

Happy Monday 🙂

Happy Spring Break!

Welp, at least I was only missing for a week, but I’ve been busy with school. I had my research paper and a short story and interview question and an article due for journalism. It was a little overwhelming, but now I’m relaxed.

Today was the start if my spring break. I had a half day today so I went to Panera for lunch, and now I am at my mom’s for the first half of spring break.

As I write this I am watching 13 Reasons Why on Netflix. I read the book about a year ago, and I’m not disappointed in the show, I just feel like there are too many differences between the two. I love the show. It’s great. The book will always just hold a deeper place in my heart.

I am by no means bashing the context of the show, I love that it’s bringing awareness to suicide and how much your words matter, I just think it could be executed better. If the show had stayed more true to the book, then my opinion would likely be different, but having the two with the same name, and the show being advertised as based off the book, I expected to be in love with it, not have mixed feelings.

Though I’m only on “Tape 5, Side A,” I have pretty much made up my mind. I will continue to watch and maybe my mind will change, but who knows.

Anywho, I’m getting tired so I’m gonna watch some youtube and probably go to bed.

Night guys, happy Friday 🙂
