Chances are you were a first semester senior this past semester, or you’re about to be, depending on where you are in your college career. I remember when I was a first semester senior in college; and I wasn’t completely sure of what I wanted. I didn’t fully know what I wanted until I was a second-semester senior and I was accepted at Emerson College for my MA in Publishing and Writing. For the first semester senior, I’m sorry I took so long writing this post, but even as winter break comes, these are some things you should know now:
- Early bird gets the worm for graduate school.
- Early bird also gets the worm for law school. So, start early.
- It’s okay to dabble in different area of extra curricular.
- It’s okay if you don’t do well in math, especially if it’s algebra that you decide to take. Math is hard!
- Ask and you shall receive!
- You can do anything with a humanities (arts, writing, history, etc.) degree.
- It’s okay if you don’t have a secure plan right after college, but make sure you have a job! (No matter if it’s retail, etc.)
- You should have an internship secured for your last semester.
- Don’t beat yourself up if you thought you were in ostensibly “the wrong major,” no one is in the “wrong major,” so embrace what you know. Everything you learned comes in handy.
- You don’t have to make highest honors.
- You don’t have to go to graduate school.
- Save your money early.
- Not everyone will like what you choose to do after college. But in the end, it’s up to you.
Merry Blog-Mas everyone! (:
