    Summary of Application Experience

    I received my first acceptance in the mail today from IU. I probably shouldn't have been concerned about getting in, but the whole waiting thing really does a psychological number on you. I mean, it wasn't anything major, but sometimes you have that voice in your head saying, 'What if...?' And other times you have that other voice in your head that narrates your life against your will.

    I still need to submit one more secondary. It's getting down to the wire, but I'm not sure if I have enough energy to complete it... Maybe.

    I didn't complete my final secondary. I'm cool with it though.

    I got some Ivy love! This is going to be quite a year. And to think I almost didn't apply to Harvard...

    Northwestern letter! Two down, two to go.

    HMS, why must you play with my heart?

    Fall 2007
    I'm currently attending Indiana University and loving it. I was not particularly impressed during my interview day and just wanted to get out of Indiana for the most part since I've lived in the state most of my life. However, I've gained a newfound respect for the school, and the caliber of my peers is astonishing. Of course, studying blows, but everything else about the experience here more than makes up for that. The people are fun. I find time to do something fun everyday. My foosball skills are steadily improving. There are international opportunities out the wazoo. Also, I live close to home, so I have an adequate caloric intake. It rocks.
