Keep complaints off Social Networking
Use that information to improve your chances of getting into other schools.
Do not worry–you’re in great company. Princeton rejected Tina Fey, M.I.T. and Villanova both passed on Tom Hanks, and Swarthmore turned down former president Barack Obama. They all survived college rejections, ultimately found the ideal school, and went on to great success. If they can do it, you can do it.
Yes, the rejection hurts, but do not ship your broken heart on a enormous social media tour. Social media posts might start off private, but it only takes one person copying and pasting your private thoughts to turn your personal mourning into a public spectacle. And once something is out there, you can not take it back.
Use the things you learned during your self-reflection to make your next group of software really glow. Expand your essay, recheck everything for potential mistakes, and put your best potential application out there. You’ve got this.

Refocus on your next application
Start with some self-reflection
If it took a while for your school to reply to you or if you’re only a little far along in the entrance season, consider looking at a school with late or rolling admission. In a rolling entry school (like us), you can apply any time up to the first day of the new semester.
Depending on the way the schools in your state handle transfer credits, you could also start studying at a regional college campus or community college and then attempt to transfer into your preferred school later on. (Or you may discover that you enjoy the learning environment there and keep around for your entire degree.)
The day started out so well. You woke up on time, breezed through your classes, and hung out with your friends. Then your visit to the mailbox sabotaged everything thanks to some school admissions rejection letter.
Consider schools with late or rolling admission
Something obviously went wrong with your program, so take a little time and consider what happened. Did your admissions contact provide any details about the rejection? Were your grades and test scores where they had to be for the faculty? Did your essay need some work?
Better to share your sadness directly with your parents or a guidance counselor as opposed to telling the world. You do not need your next college admissions counselor finding your mad rejection rant through a quick Google search.
Just because one school turned you down doesn’t mean you’re stuck at home. There’s a school for you out there. You simply need to find it.
Think about a college rejection such as an acrobat’s springboard: it can help you redirect your energy in new direction. The secret is to keep moving forward.
