Whuddaeff time.

This is not a good time for me to be alive, or applying to college. Because when you're broke, you shouldn't aim, or dream big. You should limit yourself to that obscure-university-in-some-random-part-of-the-city bubble, from which you may never escape.

Then there's the recession. Students with excellent credentials are lining up for financial aid, unsure of whether they'll actually get in because they've applied for aid with their admissions. There's tonnes of them. What can someone with 5 O level As aspire to? You might try, but if at the end of the day everything just falls flat on its face, there really isn't anything to be done.


Of course, we've got that one place in Pakistan that everyone wants to go to, no prizes for guessing which one. Their selection criteria is tougher than that of some of the best universities in the world.

The world gives me more and more incentives to shoot myself.

i tried for years to get into an art school, and eventually i ended up in one of those odd business schools. Its not so bad. Life doesnt play out the way we plan it to. But really, its not so bad at all.

And if youre planning to go to business school, you could work a part time job or give tuitions or something.

I'm inclined to agree with prone2strayvibes, its worse when you are made to study what you never wanted to just so your parents can say to all the aunties and uncles k Mera beta/beti to engineering kar raha hai!

Give ur dreams all the help you can gal, Hard times pass but your education stays with you forever!
