Today I finaly sent my application form to an American College, namely Augustana in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Imagine that, me, that dumb little kid from a rural area in southwest Norway spending (hopefully) one, maybe several years at a good college in the USA.
I never thought I would be doing anything like this, but now that I have come so far, I do feel ready for it, so to say. I was planing to send my aplication some time ago, but there was more planing to be done than I had forseen. Everything is done now though. The dice have been thrown.
Why am I writing this? Because, even though I don't normally think of this all the time, I can't get it out of my head now. Will I be accepted? Could I be rejected? My grades not to bad, but this school seems to set quite high standards for their students.
I guess these might seem like a trivial question for the hoards of Americans on E2 that have been through college, are in college, or are hoping to enter college sometime soon. To me however, the implications are enormous. It is quite a big deal to move from the countryside in a small country like Norway to a big city in the USA. If I am accepted I might stay for as long as four years, and that would definitely change my life beyond anything I can forsee right now. Hence my nerves today, as I went through the final ritual of posting my application form.
Wish me luck! :)
