I leave early in the morning so I’m packed and ready. Where am I headed? Off to Monsters University in California. Granted, I’m a little worried. Not that I won’t make the grade, or that I won’t make friends, but that I didn’t really get in.
You see I never received my letter of acceptance. I know they went out. People all over the US are celebrating the joy of being accepted to this prestigious university. One even got a visit from the Dean herself!
Monsters University Acceptance Letter
Still, I’m not going to let a little acceptance letter stop me from becoming all that I can be. You see, I’m perfect for Monster’s University.
I chose my class schedule carefully to give me the best all-around college experience:
