Things you can do while waiting for your college application results

posted on: October 28, 2022

The time between the application process and its results are the most anxious time in a student's life. There is a mixed sense of excitement and nervousness. Sometimes you feel confident whereas sometimes you feel very confident about your selection. For a rolling intake, you have to wait for 4 to 6 weeks before the results are announced. Whereas for a regular intake you might have to wait for 8 to 12 weeks. Some students end up becoming very obsessive about their results by checking the web portals of different universities from time to time. This can be extremely harmful to your mental health and you might end up getting drained. It is very important to stay productive and busy during this point in time to distract your mind from the fear of results. You need to understand that as soon as there will be progress in your application you will be notified through mail. Accredited universities are extremely responsible and thoughtful so they keep on updating you from time to time. You can surely check the website by yourself as well but make sure you don't overdo it. Sometimes a particular university may take a long time to reply. In the waiting period, you might get opportunities from other universities as well which leaves you in a dilemma of whether to go for other options or not. In this scenario being practical is the best way to handle the situation. Critically analyze if the target University that you are waiting for will select you or not. Take various aspects like acceptance rate and requirements into consideration. If you think your chances of getting accepted are high then you might as well wait. But we would suggest you do not wait for a long period for one university in particular and lose out on other opportunities.
