‘You don’t belong here’ Your Premier Kitchen & Bath Remodelers All Under One Roof

BY KATELYN BAKER 287485
It is often insisted that there are things “too good to be true.”
An acceptance to Columbia University was such; my innate shock at admittance was only rivaled 0070

by my disdain at the grades I’d applied with. e SAT was a familiar foe, with math questions left Cabinetry • Counter Tops • Ceramic Tile

“promised” me. 19 Old Doansburg Road 594 Route 6

With each year passing, Columbia loomed. Pawling, NY Bethel, CT
No one could deny I adored it; on my rst tour, my mother traced a vivid image of herself in every

me a chance I didn’t think I was capable of earning. at night at dinner, I declared with unbridled
con dent that I had “done the impossible!”

With my second semester, I’d be proven wrong.
Called down to the Dean, I stepped out of my life and into something unimaginable. On his desk,
a newspaper displayed my father’s face, the symbol of a series of college admission scandals. I felt sick;
the words of my professors and peers blended into one static hum of “You don’t really belong here.” I
suppose I knew I never did.
Columbia’s “name” kept me interested, but my ability to handle my classes was dismal.
In retrospect, I should’ve guessed. My parents’ ever suspicious “donations” to in uential administra-
tors seemed harmless at the time, but their ulterior motive was easily uncovered by a few cracks in its
calculated foundation.
I had spent years in a fabricated infatuation that my parents created, where a college’s value was
sealed in its reputation.
I unenrolled and began a search that was my own. e shame I felt at falsi ed acceptance was
quickly outweighed by relief. I no longer felt the pressure to perform in classes that didn’t suit my
strengths.
I decided to pursue my passion and now attend a not-so-Ivy art school in New York City.
One day I’ll be able to forgive, as my parents had good intentions, but going where I didn’t belong
and taking that chance from someone who did belong was a weight too heavy to bear. University
shouldn’t be a privilege only granted to those rich enough to attain it.
Today, I am happy, because I am somewhere that feels “too good to be true,” and know it belongs to
me regardless.
