    Well, I am deaf and seventeen years old myself. I remember at first I felt overwhelmed and scared about where to go and what to do with the rest of my life after high school. It seemed such like a significant decision to me. However, I went to visit Cal State Northridge and loved it there. I applied October 5 and last week I found out that I got admitted. So now I'm an incoming freshman next year at Northridge. The process is easier than most seniors think.

    All kids need to experience college. When we stop learning, we stop leading.

    If you want something you have to earn it, fight for it, respect it. Maybe procrastination is a factor that weeds out the unqualified? What is the problem?
