Congratulations! You’re admitted to the University of Illinois, and you’ve either chosen to accept your offer or you’re choosing between a couple schools. There’s no doubt it’s a tough decision to make, but the moment I chose Illinois was a moment that changed my life.
Let me tell you about it. Choosing Illinois was not a decision I expected to make as soon as I did, but as soon as I received my acceptance letter, Illinois felt right. Choosing Illinois immediately felt like I was joining one of the biggest families in the country. The college decision was one that caused me a bit of anxiety because I didn’t want to make the wrong decision, but the second I pushed accept on my computer to the University of Illinois, I felt all that anxiety and fear go away.
Illinois has provided me opportunities that I would not have found at any other college or University in the world. Being a part of this Illini family has changed my life forever and it’s been an experience I would not change for the world. It all started by pushing one big “ACCEPT” button and becoming a member of this community forever.
Again, congratulations on your acceptance! That’s a huge deal. Enjoy the moment and trust your gut. We want you here! Go Illini!
