Class of 2020

I know I already tweeted where I'll be headed next year, and if you're friends with me on Facebook you've also seen the news there. However, I am so excited to officially announce on the blog today that I will be a member of the Class of 2020 at Lehigh University!

I didn't talk too much about my college application process on the blog, simply because for me, I was lucky enough that it wasn't really a process at all! I knew ever since I visited Lehigh in February that it was my first choice, and I would be applying Early Decision (which is a binding commitment), so if I got in, I would go. It was a little nerve-wracking and stressful at times when I would start to feel super overwhelmed and convince myself that I wasn't going to get in and I would have nowhere else to go, so I applied to two other schools, making three total.


It's kind of funny to see some of my friends applying to 15 or even 20 schools, when I knew the whole time there was only one place I really wanted to go. My second choice was Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass, but I never even applied because I knew I would be finding out about Lehigh with enough time to still apply to Holy Cross after if I'd been accepted. My search was interesting because I knew exactly what I wanted in a school, I just needed to find the one. I had the feeling from the moment I stepped onto Lehigh's campus that it would be where I ended up, and it sounds cliche, but I am so glad I was right! Between the Ivy covered buildings and old architecture, and preppy students sporting Sperry's and RL to class, it really felt like somewhere I could see myself. I wanted a school between 5,000 and 7,000 undergraduate students (on the smaller side), on the East Coast, with Greek Life, and a strong business school given that I intend to major in Finance with a double minor in Marketing and French. Lehigh is best known for finance, so that worked out well!


I found out about a month ago when I was studying with my boyfriend during exam week and it was seriously one of the happiest moments. There were instant tears and it felt like a dream come true. After days of stressing, basically panicking, and constantly refreshing the online portal, among a few emails and phone calls inquiring when the decisions would finally be posted, and it was so worth it.

I am so excited to start this new chapter in my life and I am so grateful for all of the people who have supported me and for all of my educational opportunities that I am so lucky to have! Can't wait to share all of the brown and white memories I'll make throughout the next four years.
