This is the week. At least, I am relatively positive it is the week. The grad school I have applied to says that they will be letting those of us early applying people (like me, that would be me) know by February 28th. And that is definitely this week.
I don’t even really know what I am waiting for. The website says that they may contact you “via email or postal mail” and why on earth would they choose one over the other? Do they mail out rejections? Do they mail out acceptance letters? Do they only use email for international students? I feel like it would have been great if they had been a bit more clear, but here we are.
I know that everything will be fine, no matter what the answer is, but there is no question that it will be a blow if they deny me. Right now I feel like I am on a good track. I am heading towards something and my general vision of that thing is getting clearer and I will feel derailed if I don’t get to progress straight into grad school.
Who knows what could happen! I will have to find a job either way (although I will be looking for a part time one if I get into grad school). Anyway. The official countdown has started, I guess. I am feeling nervous. So I thought I would post about it.
