Just like the “Chutes and Ladders” game we all played as kids, getting through college without hitting all the chutes is a tricky situation. Applying for admission, understanding financial aid, taking placement exams, and registering for classes is not as simple as some people think. And that’s just the beginning.
When you think you’ve hit a ladder – sometimes as simple as getting an “A” on an assignment – you miss the financial aid application deadline and down the chute you go. However, after several starts and backsteps, you finally make it to graduation and it all becomes worth it.
