First letter of acceptance from a PhD program reached me last night. Funded. Formal.
I remain optimistic that more emails will come within the next few weeks, carrying with them a formal offer of admission. I hope more than anything for a choice of grad schools. I’ve applied to the schools that I genuinely want to attend, so it won’t be an easy choice that I make in the coming months.
Right now, though? I’m just so relieved and happy that after a painful, drawn-out and esteem-destroying admissions cycle first time around, and the stress of a second attempt…I’ve got something lined up for Fall 2013.
The world looks beautiful today.
