Made it past round one. Now I have to go to school tomorrow to take a proctored essay - which is what will determine whether or not I get into the program. I would feel better about this if i had time to prepare. Because our school is upgrading it's computer systems, the invitation to the essay was delayed. We only had two days to prepare for the essay and due to my other finals, I only had one (today). All I have to do is perform in the top 75-ish people of the 115-ish that will be there. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but these people are the cream of the crop - the highest scoring of the straight A students. Stressful can't even begin to describe it.
