Unlike many of my classmates, I didn't go straight to a university after high school. Instead, I decided to go through the community college route, which requires you to basically take all of your general education classes for two+ years, and then transfer on to a four year school.
What four year schools did I apply to?
So, I actually had an order as to what schools I wanted to attend:
1. San Francisco State University
2. Sacramento State University
3. Cal State Long Beach
4. Cal State Northridge
The only reason I applied to just four schools was due to the fact that the program that I was in at my community college paid for up to four application fees lol.
I honestly didn't expect to get accepted into any of the schools because I wasn't passing any of my classes last fall. Like, I literally failed all three classes. Why? Long story short, I was in the middle of two extremely unsafe situations that interfered with both my school and college lives. (These two situations led me to have to move to Louisiana)
ENOUGH OF THE SAD STORY LOL!!!
So, I actually received a letter in the mail from SFSU(San Francisco State), offering me admission into their Women and Gender Studies program!! My first choice was their Fashion Design & Merchandising program, but because it's such an impacted major, I had to choose an alternative.
So, I did accept the offer and all I have to do now is turn in my transcripts, but I am honestly nervous due to my last three grades, but I am trying to keep a positive attitude. I'm honestly just blessed to be accepted, but if I can't attend this year, then I know forsure that I will be attending next year!!
Side Note: I was put on the waitlist for Sacramento State, but I missed the deadline to accept!! (ooopsss!!)
