Well, my application to graduate school has been mailed and there is nothing more that I can do except pray. As if applying to grad school is not stressful enough, I just received an e-mail saying that even if an application is overnighted, it often takes up to a week to make it through the campus mail system and actually gets to the department to which it is addressed. Great. Considering I just mailed the application today and I definitely did not overnight it and the deadline is one week from today, I really don’t know what my chances are.
Honestly, though, at this moment I am none too anxious. As much as it would stink to have to reapply and pay the application fee again, it’s really not a big deal in the long run. Hopefully I will keep this level-headed approach for the next six weeks… or however long it takes to get an acceptance/denial letter. 🙂
On a side note, I may not finish Emma on time. The book is 418 pages and I am not even on page 200 with two days left. Then again, if I hustle I know that I can finish, but I really want to be able to enjoy it and not rush.
