Hello! I hope you’ve all caught up on Glee just as I have and are ready for Part 5. Let’s flash-forward to March when admissions decisions for freshman applicants are given out. (Visit http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/ for general information on dates, deadlines, and applying to the UC system). I was feeling pretty good.

Hello, back again, I see. Last time we left off, I made some important decisions which ultimately led to me only wanting to apply to the UC schools. As you can guess, this had greatly simplified the application procedure for me. However, this may not be the case for you. If you want to apply to other schools, you will have to do individual applications and complete letters of recommendation as well as different essay questions for each school.
