How Did I Get In?

A local news station showed a report last night about college admissions particularly pertaining to Butler. The reporter got to take an inside like at Butler admissions. A lot of people consider college admissions to be a secret or a mystery. The clip, which you can see by clicking the link, makes me wonder how I got into Butler.

I do not mean to post this to scare anyone! Butler does have really high standards, which was why out of the seven schools I applied to Butler was one that I was really worried about. What I love about the video though is that if you are admitted into Butler you have to be somewhat special. This year a little over 10,000 people applied to Butler. We can only accept a class of 1000. The thought of this is mind boggling!

Today at lunch a lot of my friends and I were wondering what could have sparked the eyes of one of the admissions counselors into picking us. But this is where Butler I feel is different from other schools. In the video it shows how unlike other schools it seems at least five people will see your application at Butler, and that’s if you have no red flags. If you have a red flag, which is explained in the video, then you may get looked at by up to 12 people. It’s insane to think that I made it past that many people’s opinions and thoughts about being a good choice for Butler.

After watching the video and how intensely everything gets looked at I am just blessed that I was able to make it. The video also made me realize how I never want to be an admissions counselor ever in my life.

Here’s a video of Blue 3, this is how far the obsession of Butler University goes for this dog. Yes, we will watch videos of him yawning, sleeping, and dreaming.
