When I got the rejection letter in December, I was CRUSHED for months.
I had started to move on, but imagine my surprise when I got a call today from Mary!!!!!:roll
I can't describe my feelings right now. One of the reasons I went ahead and applied to Hopkins when I knew it was a longshot was because as a kid, you're always told that you can be anything you want to be and where there's a will there's a way. Well, I worried more about work and kinda slushed around for 10 years. I wanted to see if that saying was true, and believe me guys, it is!!
For anyone who received a rejection letter to their dream school this year, please take my advice and write a letter asking for reconsideration. Put your heart and soul into it!
Oh, I'm pretty sure I'm accepted into the Traditional program. That's what I originally applied for. I was starting to get used to the idea of going to a 12-month program in Alabama, but I'll gladly enjoy every minute of Baltimore and JHU.
Oh my gosh, guys. what in the heck am i going to do??? Accepted Students Day is in around 2 weeks..I have no money...need to get plane, hotel AND deposit down, plus sister's wedding's in a month, and furkid needs spaying and teeth cleaned?! **thud**
If you guys are still reading, God bless you..I'm still going on adrenaline here and I am just crraaazy!!
Thanks Jeanne, BirthMamaew, and Alana for comforting me when the times were tough (and even before I knew it)--can't wait to get to know all of you!!
edit: OMG, I just realized the deadline for Merit Scholarships has passed!! I applied Early Decision and since I was rejected in December, didn't think I needed to fill out the essay/application..Heeelp!!
