"So have you heard anything?"
That's the question that greets me when I reunite with a friend, when I mention plans or next year or school with anyone at work, when any sort of news is being shared, when others announce their happiness of acceptance. Because everyone knows I applied in January.
In December I
hounded folks asked for recommendations, and after an irritating weeks long process of emails not being sent to my references, I finally got the happiest screen on a computer that they had been submitted.
And almost immediately the question was asked, "When will you hear something?" and then "Have you heard about school yet?"
The short answer is no. I haven't gotten an acceptance letter or a rejection letter. I'm just waiting. I'm waiting with a bit of confidence, but still just waiting.
There was a hiccup in their database and for two weeks there, I was stressing since I had received an email that they didn't have my GRE scores. The GRE scores that would have been sent back in November. But after some prodding they found the glitch and fixed it, and now I've been passed on to the admissions council. And I wait.
Sorry this post doesn't really contain much more information than that, but waiting is where I am. It's a safe place. At least I haven't had a door close on a dream. At least there's still hope
Looking back at my graduate school posts, I made a post declaring my intent to go back to school almost one year ago. Wow. One whole year of working towards this goal.
So I've been filling a lot of my extra time waiting working on crafts and reading and just generally trying to not grow antsy. I calm myself with meditations of God's perfect timing.
