At this point most people want to know their early results for college but I just want to be Schrödinger’s Cat because I’d rather be in a state of both rejection and acceptance, not knowing which - I would rather not even open the bunker to see the result. I also just want to be a cat.
I'm 17, a senior in high school and I live in London.
This is a blog about my application process to American universities, and anything I can do to improve my chances.
Yo don’t tell people they r applying 2 too many colleges yo there ain’t no universally perfect numbah yo ya dig just don’t do it yo

Pick and explain a quote that is especially meaningful to you
"lost and insecure
you found me, you found me
lying on the floor
by all my fucking college apps.”
SAT subject tests tomorrow :(
Anonymous asked: Will you choose any US uni over one of your UK choices, or are you unsure?
I’m kind of unsure because I haven’t visited most of the american unis on my list yet, I’m doing that only if I get accepted because it is hella expensive flying to the us, but i guess my top choices i probably would (UCLA, USC, Yale, Georgetown and UPenn). It also depends on whether my parents like the university in America I chose because they’re going to pay for me.
