The first semester of my senior year is coming to an end: I’ve applied to almost all the colleges I’m interested in, my SAT and ACT scores are sent, finals are a month away, and my final high school volleyball season is over. Now I feel this deep-set fear in my heart about college and the unknown aspects of it. I don’t know the college I truly want to go to and I don’t know the college that is apart of God’s plan for my life, even though I’ve prayed about this since my sophomore years. How do I get over this fear and decide which college to go to?

First off let me tell you that you are absolutely not alone. I kinda freaked out when I was handed all the information about graduation and my senior portfolio. I am also a senior but I am doing a program called running start so I’m finishing up my first college quarter. College can be a scary thing but it can also be fun. Sometimes you just have to hold on for the ride :). If you don’t know what 4 year college to attend, look into going to a community college first. Its cheaper and you can gain a bit of confidence before going to a big university. Talk to your parents as well, mine really helped when I was freaking out about school so much I couldn’t pick myself up off my floor. Above all, listen to God. Pay attention to that slight nagging in the back of your mind to try this thing or that. He may not speak to you clearly but if you look, you’ll find He is guiding you in ways you wouldn’t think of.

Thanks @MorganS for your reply. I’m not scared of going to a four year university–I’m ready for a four year university. I’m just stuck on which college to attend. I’m stuck between a few colleges. I have been praying and your right about that “slight nagging” because I’ve been feeling it. The college I feel God is leading me to my mother isn’t too smitten with, which is one of the reasons I’m stuck on which college to go to.
