The majority of college applicants have a dream school they’d love to attend, but Smith believes it’s important to not put your eggs all in one basket. A major key is to ensure that you have a range of colleges and universities in case you, unfortunately, don’t hear back from the ones you expected to.
“When it came to applying I wanted to have a lot of options. I’m indecisive and I didn’t want to just apply to one school — my dream school — if I didn’t get in. I wanted something I could fall back on,” Smith said, according to the outlet. ”Also I wanted to be debt free out of college, so I was trying to see what school would give me the best scholarships.”
