    3/10/2014: With the exception of one silent rejection from Jefferson, I have heard back from all my schools. Application cycle officially done. 11 Interview invites, attended 9 and received 5 acceptances, 2 wait lists and 2 rejections out of that. I have had a lot more success than I could have ever imagined and have no complaints whatsoever. I think a lot can be said for being passionate about what you do and staying genuine throughout the process. Now to decide where I will go in the Fall.
