My First Two College Acceptances

As many of y'all know, I am currently a senior in high school and going through the whole college application process. It has been quite the process so far (the reason behind my lack of posting lately) but a few weeks ago, I received my first two acceptances.

I decided to publish this post to keep y'all updated on the application process for me as well as for me to look back on in the future. I will not be sharing my opinions on what schools are my favorite or my thoughts on particular schools (like "I'm totally going to get into _______" or "________ is my reach school") but I'm planning on sharing more as the year goes on!

Now for the fun part... I was accepted into both the University of Mississippi and High Point University!

I received a scholarship from High Point in the spring as part of the Juniors Scholars Program, which allowed me to find out the status of my application before their official notification date in December. I received my letter informing me of my acceptance a few weeks ago, making High Point my first college acceptance (I'm applying to 7 schools).

While I was on my home from work that same day, I got a text from Ole Miss notifying me that my student portal was now accessible. I thought that was kind of weird because I wasn't officially accepted into the school but logged into the portal to find out that I was accepted into Ole Miss as well!

I now have a bit of waiting until I receive my next admissions notifications (the next one few will be in December!) but I'm so excited to already be accepted into two schools!


Are you a high school senior? How is the college application process going for you? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Congratulations! I remember my first acceptance was Meredith College and it was a relief to know that I was accepted somewhere! It was really happening! I had a similar situation happen with UNC, I wasn't expecting to hear back from them until mid-January but my Dad handed me the envelope and told me congratulations, I thought he was joking.
