Students on Edge for April 1st

Posted on: March 17, 2010

April 1st, College Decision Day

It is a bright, sunny morning as a student picks up the coveted letter from the mail. His hands are shaking feebly by the weight of the thin envelope from the university. The process of opening it and taking in its radiance can last a long period of time. As the student pulls out the letter, anticipation has built to an insurmountable level and the student will either be crushed or sent into a state of euphoria by what the letter says.

It is mid March and by now, most seniors are on the edge about college decisions. April 1st is the official day when students will receive their letters containing the tickets to their future. All the hard work the past 4 years, studying late into the night, memorizing vocab, practicing a foreign language, running drills, grinding away on the range, making plays, etc. adds up to a formidable resume at IMG. We here strive to be the best that we can be whether in the field of academics, athletics, or both. Kids here have big dreams of becoming professional athletes or leaders in society and one major step in that journey is attending college. For the kids at IMG who have yet to finalize their college plans or sign, I encourage you to stay positive. It isn’t life or death over one school. There are many opportunities out there for you, so never give up hope.
