The new season of Game of Thrones begins on March 31.
Tufts releases its RD application decisions between March 28 and April 1.
Coincidence? I think not.
To celebrate (or perhaps mourn) application decisions and the return to air of Westeros's favorite television series, I present to you the College Admissions Process, Through Game of Throne GIFs. Greyjoy. Enjoy.
Step 1: Apply to college.
Step 2: Read the application prompts.
Step 3: Write your applications and send them in.
Step 4: Wait for your decisions. Then wait. Continue waiting.
Step 5: Wait some more. Maybe call the admissions office just to make sure they got your application. Or set up a blog, in the meantime. Whatever you do, don't moan about how much we make you wait.
Step 6a: Celebrate! (If you were accepted)
Step 6b: Burn it. (If you weren't)
Step 7: Check out the tuition bill.
Step 8: Get to college, realize exactly how much those AP classes "prepared you for college."
Step 9: Have the best time of your life.
