  1. Apply to the Other Schools Which Are Still Admitting

So you were rejected by a school you applied to that by no means stops you from trying out other options to forward your education. It should stop you from taking advantage of the quality education being offered in other schools. Sure there are reasons why

  1. Focus on the Admission Application Process to Your Second-Choice School

There’s a reason you chose the school as your second choice and it

is because it has similar qualities to your first choice school. Since your admission to your first school of choice was rejected, turn your attention to and channel your energy into working on the admission process into the next school.
