“Club season,” as some (by some, I mean me) have dubbed it, is almost over at Georgetown. Like my mother astutely commented, applying to clubs at Georgetown is “almost like reapplying to college.” First, let’s acknowledge that there are some great clubs that do not require you to send applications. Here’s to you GIVES, GUGS and many more.
Secondly, one of the reasons clubs can be very competitive at Georgetown is that we Hoyas are generally a great group of kids. It’s almost unfair, am I right? Still, no matter how formidable the competition was, rejection can be tough. We at 4E understand and are here to help. One of my personal idols, Mindy Kaling, once said, “You should know I disagree with a lot of traditional advice. For instance, they say the best revenge is living well. I say it’s acid in the face — who will love them now?” In that spirit, here is 4E’s guide on how to get back at clubs that have rejected you.
- People say, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” So, next semester, why not apply to the one club that is in friendly – or not so friendly – competition with the club that rejected you?
- Keep reapplying. Not just next semester, but reapply every semester for your entire time at Georgetown. If nothing else, you’ll annoy them to death.
- Take a note from Mean Girls and create your own burn book. Just don’t let it fall into the wrong hands…
- Go all Taylor Swift and write a chart topping song about the club. “I knew you were trouble when I clicked send.”
- Listen to Destiny Child’s “Survivor.” Don’t question it. Just trust me, it works.
- Have a little party with your good friends Ben & Jerry.
- Start your own club. You are a Hoya, which means you are intelligent, creative and (insert adjective of choice). Use this as inspiration and create something amazing!
- Don’t worry! On a more serious note, I myself can list several clubs I did not get into or have already reapplied to more than once. Opportunities besides student clubs are always coming up for Hoyas here on the Hilltop. Don’t let one decision get you down, never forget to keep trucking and doing you!
