How a High School Student Helped His Friend Meet College Application Deadlines
Ethan had put off applying for colleges until the last minute. He knew he could have started applying in his junior year of high school, but, for one reason or another, he just never made the time. He was busy playing sports, keeping up with homework assignments, studying for tests, and fitting in time to spend with his friends.
Then, over the summer—to be quite honest—Ethan was enjoying what would essentially be his last summer vacation before he graduated, and he knew he would be heading off to college and spending his summers working from then on. Now that school had almost started, his best friend Charlie told him he needed to get his college applications submitted now as the deadlines were fast approaching.
Ethan and Charlie had worked out what schools they would apply to so they could share a dorm room and attend the same university. They had made a list of the schools that offered degrees in the programs both Ethan and Charlie wanted to pursue. At least Ethan had this part of the process done.
As Ethan started pulling up college and university applications, one thing he kept seeing was he needed to prove his identity by submitted a copy of his birth certificate. Ethan knew he used to have his birth certificate at one point because he had gotten his driver’s license when he turned 16.
However, he had no recollection of what had happened to his birth certificate. He questioned both his mom and dad, and they reminded him they had asked for it back on multiple occasions, but Ethan never gave it back to them. Then it hit him. He must have left it in a pocket in his pants, like he had a bad habit of doing, and it had gotten laundered.
Panic started to set in because the last time he needed to get his birth certificate it took almost two months after standing in line for hours at the local records office. He texted Charlie and informed him he would probably not be able to make most of the deadlines because he needed to get a copy of his birth certificate. He was deeply discouraged and saddened at the thought of not being able to attend the same school as his best friend.
Then Charlie texted back that he, too, needed to obtain a birth certificate since he had lost his prior to submitting his college applications, and he had found a much faster option by ordering it online through Fast Birth Certificates. He told Ethan to check out the site, as he knew they had options where a person could get it quickly with plenty of time to still meet the deadlines. Ethan was relieved and, with help from his parents, completed the application and had a copy of his birth certificate in hand about ten days later.
