In honor of yet another GAAP weekend this weekend, I would like to take you on a journey. This is the journey of a young accepted student, eagerly awaiting her arrival at Georgetown, who couldn’t resist the burning urge to post things in her GAAP group. Yes, this is the story of my life as an admitted student…
Flashback to 2012, upon being admitted in December, naturally the first thing I do is desperately try to make new friends.
The next person to post writes about wanting to do crew. Since I rowed in high school I naturally respond to his post. I proceeded to comment 9 times in this conversation thread. I felt it was neccesary…
So I’m probably not leaving the best impression, but I doubt anyone reads these posts anyway…
Unfortunately that was not my only comment that conveyed far to much information. Another girl posed this question to the group “What’s your favorite food”. Clearly I needed to respond:
But clearly they needed more specific information than that.
Well at least these were just comments on other peoples’ posts. That makes it better. Right?
Fast forward one month. I find out, much to my dismay that I cannot go to the early action GAAP weekend. Naturally I share my distress:
But I still wanted everyone to have fun…
Don’t worry! I did attend a later GAAP weekend, and of course I posted about that too:
Ok so these posts are getting slightly excessive I know. But can you blame me? I clearly have important things to share, and lots of thoughts on my mind!
I also had a lot of pressing questions for upperclassmen:
While these are a select few of my posts in the Georgetown 2016 GAAP Group, they are far from all of them. While I am slightly ashamed by the fervor with which I posted before coming to Georgetown, I have #noregrets.
In honor of GAAP weekend I challenge you to backstalk yourself in your own GAAP group. (Or better yet, do it to your friends) You’ll uncover the awkwardness you thought you’d blocked out and relive what it was like before coming to campus.
