Since the beginning of August, the Class of 2017 has been battling the rigorous college application season. Although many schools do not notify applicants of their admission decision for several months, some have rolling admission. In these schools, applicants receive their admission status soon after they apply. Therefore, many seniors have already been accepted into several colleges.  

Senior Jenna Wiley stated, “It feels really good to be accepted into six schools because even if I look at it logically and know my scores as well as GPA are good enough to get in, it is still stressful to think I may have done something wrong to keep me from getting accepted. My top school is Belmont University and when I opened my acceptance letter, I cried. I was beyond excited. I am done applying, but I am waiting to hear back from USF, FSU, and UF.”
