It’s April and for seniors it means that the college decision is upon us. For most seniors the decision is already made and they are already picking out what posters to put up on their dorm room walls. As for the rest of us, we are stuck in college limbo. I applied to five universities and have already heard back from four of them, but one remains unanswered. Most colleges inform applicants of their admission by this time yet this particular university sends out their admission letters through the month of April. Therefore, I am currently stuck in a weird, gray area while I wait for my last admission letter before I can finally make my college decision. On top of all that unbearable waiting, I have the other colleges and their impending deadlines to worry about, too. All I can really do now is harass the university with calls and accuse our mail carrier of conspiring against me. Just when I thought I was done with this whole process it finds a way to keep its claws in me for a while longer. Will this hell ever end?   – Ruben
