The best feeling in the world  

You got in.

Those are the sweetest three words to every senior’s ear. That moment of college acceptance beats any in the world.

I got the message via email. My hands were shaking as I clicked the mouse uncontrollably. I was hyperventilating. My heart felt suppressed. I literally couldn’t breath.

Then, the first word, that “congratulations” followed by “welcome to our community” showed through the screen. And I was suddenly speechless, thoughtless, numb.

I rushed to tell my parents. We read the message over and over. Mom was in tears. Dad gave me a hug. I started to call all my friends.

I was officially accepted into my dream school, the school that I’ve wanted to go to since junior high.

That’s why the feeling is so strong, that I achieved something, that I’ve realized a dream.

My friends and teachers screamed along with me; some even cried, and at that moment, I felt like I’ve achieved something big; Columbia University. New York City, here I come.
