The frequent and annoying questions that parents, relatives, neighbors, and even teachers ask high school students regarding college can take an exciting part of life and make it frustrating. Here are three of the most dreaded questions you’ve probably heard over and over again:
- Are You Going to College? – You probably hate this question simply because of the pressure it puts on you. Everyone from your parents to your guidance counsel probably expect you to be going to college. Hearing the question over and over may make it feel like the answer is out of your hands.
- Have You Chosen a Major Yet? – This is basically the same as someone asking, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” The problem is that now you’re going to be sinking a lot of time and money into the answer, and you may not know what you want to spend the rest of your life doing yet.
- Which Schools Have You Been Accepted To? – There are a couple of situations that make this question difficult. First, you may not have gotten a positive response from any schools yet. Even if you have, this is a pretty personal decision, and while you know the factors that are most important to you, everyone is going to have an opinion.
