I Feel Dumb

I got my ACT scores back this morning. I didn't do so well. The thought of applying to colleges with that score is making me physically sick. I am so stressed out right now. I've never been good at taking tests but I expected to get a higher score. I was hoping for a 30 at least..I wonder what colleges are going to say when they compare my g.p.a to the piece of crap score I got. My SAT scores will come in shortly, I'll just have to wait and see if I did better on those.

colleges look at ur act score, extracurricular activities and gpa, if u have a high gpa, are involved in school activities and scored a 22 on your act, your more likely to get into a college then a person whose gpa isnt so high, not involved and scored a 26, dont worry you will most likely get excepted to the college you want to go to (unless its like harvard or princeton) but you probably wont get any special scholorships good luck!!!! im taking mine in a week!

Sadly, yes. <br />
<br />
But you've got to have hope I think. You never know where the next opportunity for you in life might come from :-)

hahaha but they count :( arghhhhhhhhhh

Tell me about it. I think these exam things are the most contrived, overrated pieces of crap ever devised by humans.

I agree, but there is such pressure to do well, it's so annoying...<br />
<br />
And wow, that's great..<br />
<br />
Thanks for your comment.

Grades are just numbers on a piece of paper at the end of the day. They mean nothing in terms of your intelligence.<br />

I got a lower mark than I wished for in my final high school exams. And it turned out to be the best thing that happened to me :-) Because of that, I ended up at a university I was very happy with & I met some great people there. There is always hope, for as when one door seems to close, another one opens.


You implied so bahhahahhaahha

I didnt say you was a perv.

@Arorin just wait! Don't test me! muhahah lmao<br />
<br />
@Goliath797 Bhahahaha can't you see mean Arorin is? He's calling me a perv! And thinks I like watching naked people and I DON'T!!!!! So I'm going to tickle him until he falls over and apologizes!

I come back to this story, and it went from discussing the flaws of the grading system of the U.S. and canada, to having a tickle fight.<br />
<br />
I love stuff like this :P

lol sure sure.

You better be!

ooo so scary!

I am going to tickle you!!!

I never said you was a perv. <br />
<br />
and how do you plan to hurt me lol?

You're calling me a perv!! and I swear I'm not so I'm going to hurt you so you will take back what you said (more accurately are suggesting)

Sorry for what? I didnt do nothings!

Arghhhhhhh I am going to hurt you! Are you ticklish? I will tickle you until I make you say sorry!

What way? are you implying you have thought about him in a way?

Bahahhaha lmao no, I don't like him in that way! You are torturing me on purpose and I fall trap to it every single time! :P

I bet you do like him.

The guy who's engaged to Katy Perry and OMG he is a perv! but I still like hm, because he is funny

Who is russell brand? is that the guy you wanted to see naked in it?

Yes you do!<br />
<br />
Oh my gosh watching an R rated movie doesn't mean I like to watch naked people! You should watch that movie, you'd like it! And not for the nakedness but for the story line! Russell Brand is in it!

I have that effect on people! <br />
<br />
You already said you watched that adult R movie or whatever.

LMAO LMAO LMAO You don't understand how hard you make me laugh :D<br />
<br />
I am a prude..I would never watch such things! lol.

It is okay even though I am pure I understand 17 year old girls do...

You're so pure! How could I have doubted you! lol

Lions are noble and prideful creatures. Look at how white and pure I am.
