For my entire life, my family has been obsessed with football. My dad’s family liked Michigan and my mom’s rooted for Michigan State. I sided with my dad and decided that, since I liked the team so much, I would go to the University of Michigan one day. Today, I have no chance.

Finding the perfect college turned out to be more than which sports team my dad rooted for. As a child, I hadn’t taken into account the academic qualifications and price of each school. The University of Michigan turned out to be much harder to get into than I had thought, and the price was extremely high. With no chance of scholarships at UofM, I turned my search to different schools. To date, I have acceptance letters from Central Michigan University, University of Michigan Flint, and Grand Valley State University.

So far, Grand Valley looks like the place I’ll be going. It’s a medium sized campus, not too close and not too far from home, and they offer me great financial aid. They also have great programs in the major I want; psychology. My college search isn’t entirely over, but as for now, I have my sights set on being a Laker next fall.
