When it came time for college, everyone said 'you'll get a scholarship,' but at the time I thought the only scholarship that existed was the National Merit Scholarship. I was a finalist, but I didn't get one, so I said 'I guess I won't go to college.' That's how little I or my parents knew about college. That's how stupid I was. When my counselor found out, she was appalled. She drove me up to Albright where her sister was the registrar, and of course, Albright gave out scholarships. I worked three jobs on campus, so I was working about 40 hours a week, and I loved every minute of it.
