Great question, there are some strategies you can use depending on what feels right for you.
Keep it Moving.
It is impossible to know right now which college is going to be exactly right for you. So take the “No” in stride, and move on. What’s meant for you won’t pass you by.
Ask for more information.
College decisions are usually pretty final. But it never hurts to send an email to the admissions office and ask why you weren’t accepted and if there is anything you can do to appeal the decision.
Increase your GPA, then apply again.
If there is a “dream” school you really want to attend, but they reject you, you could start at a school with more flexible admission (maybe a 2-year college, or another 4-year school with lower admission criteria) Build a strong GPA, set up a transfer plan with a counselor, and apply again to your dream college in two years.
