  • The American university mafia is sickening. It is insane that graduates leave university with sometimes 70k in debt. Higher education in the US is now a cash cow industry, running on loans that are not going to be paid anytime soon. I hope the growing education bubble bursts, to put reform in motion. I chose to study in central Europe for this very reason. Better quality of student life, reasonable tuition cost, and better overall education standards.

  • im struggling with my work and no one in my class will let the teacher explain anything so almost everyone is failing and im one of them

  • to clarify the below was sarcasem I’m glad this girl has the balls to stand up to such obvious class discrimination since none of the men in this country has the balls to do jack shit no wonder you’r women hate you.

  • Thank you for this! I have just been notified that I was not accepted to the school that I have been wanting to go to for so long. It hurt a lot and I don’t understand why I was not accepted. But you’re video made me feel a little bit better about the options and opportunities that I still have.

  • I was rejected by most selective schools as a freshman because my high school grades weren’t impressive and my SAT was just a 1470. So, I decided to apply for a transfer with a 35 on the ACT and 3.52 GPA as a Physics major during my first semester. I was rejected once again despite having good essays and what I thought was a decent profile. I’m quite broken now, and I don’t know what my path entails now as I’m not very happy at my current institution. Any advice?:(

  • i have always been really good at reading and ela, i always got a’s in that class but this year i have a 76 im listening in class and she doesnt give us anything to study i dont know what to do

  • I tried #1 and they said NO, asked for feedback on my application so that I could improve for the future and they said NO, and then when she mentioned #2 I broke down crying because I’ve been wanting to do this one program for two years, and I didn’t even make it past the first round when I KNOW I should have. Plus my friend who applied and had way less ECs and her average was lower made it past the first round! I’ve been treated unfairly and I think I have a hunch as to why (my past employer is tangled up with the organization and we ended off on a bad note). This other girl I know got rejected last year 2nd round and asked for feedback and they gave it to her! LIKE CAN I SUE THEM SERIOUS QUESTION.

  • i’m still in school, and this year i’m gonna have to apply to a high school for whatever career path i have chosen. it’s one of the better schools in my town, and the path i want to take is the best in the whole school ( and it requires the most points ). it’s lowest acception points are 70, highest 80 ( for all schools ), and i have 72 points. i’m really scared and stressing out all the time if i will get in it because i really, really want to and i’m trying to study hard in school. any tips on anything?

    edit: the reason why i’m stressing out is because there are people with much more points than me and in this school, it’s not only people from my town that are applying, it’s people from around the town and islands so i’m kinda worried.:(

  • You have a great personality and sense of humor! I found your channel about 2 weeks ago and I’m so into it. My son is a jr in high school and we want to get as much information as possible. Your videos are a treasure!!!!!!!!! ♥️

  • Question, what should I do, as a freshmen, to start preparing for ACT? I want to get going ASAP but I’m not really sure what the first step is. Thanks!

  • Thank you so much Keri. I got two scholarship rejections and I was feeling heavier over it, but your second point “There is a greater reason” makes me to start to feel lighter. Thank you so much!

  • Can you make a video on how to prepare for college? I just got accepted into my dream school but I’m worried about not being prepared enough

  • I love all of your videos, and I am so thankful for how helpful they have been through my college admissions process. I’m proud to say I’m attending MIT this fall.

  • today i got rejected from my dream school (nyu). it was actually their most competitive year ever with a 16% admit rate. after crying for a solid 2 hours about my rejection i realized that a university doesn’t make me who i am, i am the one that defines myself and my life path. so for anyone that got hit hard by ivy day (lol) or by a not so good college decision, just know that this doesn’t define who you are and your capabilities.

  • I successfully appealed my denial of admission (denial based on IMPACTION, met academic requirements)…broke every letter writing rule in the book and also included an audio version of my letter with the one page paper version. I have shared it for anyone who is interested. I had been admitted prior but a clerical administrative error caused me my admission. My admission was withdrawn and I appealed. I was sure a Dean’s letter explaining such would suffice so as advised I kept my appeal letter short and sweet. Didn’t work. Was denied and so I was forced to reapply. Second time around I was told I met a academic requirements but was being denied based on IMPACTION. The letter I posted is the unedited original I submitted to the appeals committee. If it helps anyone it’s on my channel. Thanks

  • I’m still a sophomore but I found out this morning I got accepted for the Yale Young Global Scholars program. They are giving my $5,000 but I still am expected to scrape together $1250 by April 10, which is not realistically probable for me. Anyway, I want to “negotiate” for a better financial aid package so does anybody have any advice on what I should do?

  • I got rejected or waitlisted by 10 out of 11 schools with a 1540 on the SAT, 8 AP’s with only 4’s and 5’s, a 4.0, everything I could do with band and all-state, and a slew of other extracurriculars. Is it worth investing time in my waitlist offers at UChicago and UCLA?

  • I’m probably gonna get rejected when I apply cuz I’m about to finish fophmore year with 3 A’s and 4 B’s and only 1 AP class I had a B+ in:(

  • My tech class today did a lesson on how to respond to trolls on the internet. My tech teacher asked if anyone had any examples of how to properly handle trolls, and I read one of Josh’s conversations with a troll���� the whole class was cracking up.

  • I’m only in 8th grade and didn’t even take my PSAT yet. Why am I watching a video on how to deal with rejection from my dream school?

  • I just got rejected from San Diego state university and want to write an appeal. I haven’t called since the admissions office has closed already so i will call tommorow and I have a feeling I got rejected since the major I applied as was really impacted. Would I be able to ask for a change of major in the appeal?

  • whoa I’m early:O
    love your vids <333
    I’m a junior rn, hopefully I won’t get rejected by my dream school (if I ever have one) ���� though it’s probably likely since I’m aiming for Ivies

  • I wasn’t accepted because my official transcripts through parchment never arrived to the university. that is highly unfair. I don’t know if it’s possible to even reconsider and investigate where my transcripts are.

  • Definitely could use a “how to deal with being lgbtq+ and not being able to tell people. It’s so nerve wracking and advice from you on the matter would be so amazing

  • I have a very hard decision. So I got rejected from St. John’s and I was considering transferring after my first 2years of another college. But then I learned about an appeal application and thought I would try it. Before this is had already called the admissions office and emailed them for more information. Very recently I got accepted to farmingdale which is my second choice. Now my question is should I go to farmingdale because it is cheaper and I get to live on my own for 2years then transfer to St. John’s or should I should I keep pushing for St. John’s even tho it’s closer and more expensive?

  • Hey josh I got a question. I like this girl and I think she likes me but I feel like she’s playing hard to get. But how do I know if she is playing hard to get or not. Thanks

  • Don’t go to your dream school and take on massive amounts of loans. I recommend going to a college good enough where they give you the most financial aid with less loans like a state college.

  • I can attest to going to community college and transferring to my DREAM SCHOOL! I actually got into the university, but I couldn’t afford it. I spent 4 years at community college and saved a ton of money, built a life there through activities, kept my grades up, and received a scholarship to my dream university because of it! I’m finishing my degree at my dream school in May!

  • I have an appeal meeting in a couple of days and I’ve never been more nervous or anxious in my entire life. I did veeeerrrryyyy poorly my freshman/sophomore/junior years of high school. But did AMAZING my senior year of high school and was even on honor roll for the first time in my life specifically for the fact that I wanted to go to this particular school. I also got 5 letters of recommendation from my teachers/guidance counselor along with joining an extracurricular. I’m praying to Jesus that this appeal goes through. Wish me luck!

  • Thank you for this video, I was just rejected! If anyone wants to see more of this type of content, I made a similar video that I hope can help motivate you through this period!

  • I want to appeal to being denied a course overload. I need a extra course for graduation. I was denied because I was below a 3.0. But I’m at a 2.68 and to graduate you need a 2.0. Any tips?
