Share Article

As college admissions decisions are released this month, Montgomery Educational Consulting, a college consulting firm, offers advice on how to deal with being rejected.

Hopefully, you've been admitted to some of the other schools you applied to, and perhaps one of those will end up being a better fit.

As March draws to a close, most colleges have released their admissions decisions. For students who were admitted, this is an exciting time. But for those who were denied, especially from their first choice college, it can seem like their life is over.

In her article on dealing with rejection, Montgomery Educational Consulting's Sara Zessar suggests that students focus on the positives. "Hopefully, you've been admitted to some of the other schools you applied to, and perhaps one of those will end up being a better fit," Ms. Zessar explained.

Often, when adults offer advice to teens whose college aspirations didn't turn out the way they had hoped, teens are inclined to feel that the adults just don't understand. So who better to advise students than another student with a similar experience? In this video, a college student talks about how attending his "last choice" school actually turned out for the best.

If students didn't get into their first choice school, they owe it to themselves to give another school a fair chance by going there for at least a semester, if not a full year. A fair chance means more than just attending classes: students should study hard, make friends, and participate in activities.

Good grades and extracurricular involvement will be especially important if a student eventually decides to transfer. For more on the college transfer process, see this article by Montgomery Educational Consulting's Katherine Price.
