I remember what January of 2010 was like. I had sent in all 5 of my applications. I had focused so much energy and time, produced so many drafts of the “perfect” personal statement, paid so much money in application fees, and had sent too many emails to my recommenders. Although this may seem like a time where you should worry, it is not.
There is nothing eloquent that I can write about this waiting game. Nothing heartfelt or rhythmic. I only want to encourage you that now is where the confidence in all of your hard work, your academic experiences, your decisions to select the schools to apply to, all of the internet and soul searching, every sacrifice that you have made, and the strength that it took to take a leap of faith to actually begin the application process is going to pay off. You will succeed.
Indiana University is an amazing school and definitely a place where you can thrive and learn and grow into a better academic and professional. And, if this is your choice, I look forward to seeing you at future GPSO events. Don’t worry about shoulda, woulda, couldas….worry about the “I wills” and the “I can’t waits!”
Relax. Go about your daily routines. Wait for the email notification. And, be patient. The confirmation is coming your way!!!!
