What advice would you give to a junior girl when she gets rejected or told the offer has been given to someone else?

  • “I would tell her to not give up hope. The process is frustrating and stressful but you have to be patient and persistent. I faced many rejections, one of which was from my second choice, but the next day, I received an offer from my first. There will be a school out there that is waiting to welcome you with open arms; you just have to be patient and continue to work hard.” – Ivy League Golfer
  • “In terms of advice that I would give a junior girl, I would say, and I’m sure they hear this a lot, to just keep trying with other schools. I know that rejection isn’t fun, but it happens to everyone. Remind yourself of your goals and trust that you’ll end up where you need to be. Also while it feels like there’s a time constraint, there’s a lot more time left than people think. Offers go through and people even switch once they get in. So it’s important to keep chugging along. Really the possibilities are endless as long as you don’t quit after rejection” – DIII Golfer
