DEAR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS STRUGGLING THROUGH QUESTBRIDGE

timeless-willows:

pettitojt:

do. not. quit.

my name is olivia. i’m a sophomore in college and i was in your place two years ago. this week was one of the hardest weeks of my life. i stressed. i cried. i procrastinated. i lost sleep. i cried. i wanted to break things. i may or may not have broken…

I’m going to add onto this and say that when I applied I did NOT think I would match to any colleges. I was just doing it as a might as well try it to see. But I did it and I got matched. And it was a terribly long process and half way through it I almost gave up because I thought “I’m not going to get it anyway why am I trying?” The thing is you never know and you shouldn’t give up. Maybe you think you don’t deserve it but the colleges will. Just stick through it. I’m here for any of you Questies who need help with their apps this year. Just send me a message.

right on. we’re all still here for you guys.

‘A National Admissions Office’ for Low-Income Strivers

QUESTBRIDGE: finally getting some national attention!

the new york times did a really nice job with this article on the program. if you’re a current high school junior (or an extremely ambitious high school senior who has not already begun a QB app) from a low to middle income family, please take a look at this!

The large grey building on the left is Stage 5, which housed the Gold Room set, as well as the Torrance family’s Boulder Apartment set.
The brick building in the mid-ground contained the Overlook’s Kitchen set, while in the far background, Stage 3 and Stage 4 can be seen, which contained the enormous Colorado Lounge set and the Hotel Lobby set.

Don’t ask him to make humans, though.
