Formally accepting your admissions offer is supposed to be the culmination of the college selection process — and finally relieve the pressure you’ve endured the past year. But if you’re not thrilled to be donning the hoodie and bumper sticker of your future alma mater, you may be having second thoughts about your college choice.

Don’t panic. It’s normal to get cold feet about college and be nervous about such a huge decision, even after it’s officially made. Give yourself a few weeks to see if the stress and second-guessing subsides. If the feeling won’t go away, it might be time to consider next steps.

1. Revisit the school

If it’s financially and geographically feasible, think about revisiting the school. You may view the campus differently now that you know you’ve been accepted, so you might get a better sense of whether it’s a good choice. While you’re there, see if you can talk to some current students about your concerns. You can also attend your school’s admitted students weekend if it hasn’t already passed.

2. Write out your thought process

Sometimes the best way to make a big decision is to make an old-fashioned pros and cons list, where you write down all the positives and negatives that come with going to your school. If you did this for your initial decision, then revisit the list to see if anything has changed. If one list vastly outweighs the other, it might make your decision easier.

3. Talk it out

Discussing your feelings with a trusted adviser such as a high school counselor or parent can also help you decide whether or not you’ve chosen the right school. Show them your pros and cons list and see if they can offer some new perspective.

4. Weigh your other options

If you haven’t formally declined admission to other schools that accepted you, you might revisit them as well, or at least call an admissions officer to find out if that school could be a better fit. You typically have until May 1 to make a final decision.

5. Make a decision

Eventually, you’ll need to decide whether or not to withdraw. Keep in mind, you may take a financial hit by losing your deposit, and it could be tough to find another school immediately. But if you think it’s the right decision, it’s important to listen to your gut.

If you’re still on the fence, it may be worth it to give the school a chance. You may feel differently once you’re on campus, making friends and heading to classes. If you get there and decide you hate it, you can always transfer to another school next semester.
