It is officially that time of year where deadlines for college applications and deposits are coming to a close.
Believe it or not, I am in these same position that you are in your senior year of high school. I will be graduating from East Carolina University with a Bachelors Degree in Communications in a little less than a month (where has the time gone?), and I am actually in the process of applying for graduate school here.
Just like you, I have to write essays, and collect letters of recommendations, and fill out applications. All this handwork will pay off though once we all receive those letters of acceptance into the Pirate Nation!
So my advice for all my future Pirates out there, keep submitting your application materials and keep meeting your deadlines!
