Now that it’s all over . . .

Greetings once again from a rather long hiatus from my blog. I didn’t necessarily mean to do so, but life just sometimes gets in the way.

I’m happy to report that I am now a veteran of the GMAT!!!! Yippee!! It feels so great to be done with that beast of a test. And for now, I’m not planning to take it again, so that means I’m really done!

For the last two weeks I’ve been busy a) catching up on all the stuff I had to neglect while I studied and b) filling out the grad school applications. I have to say that it was a lot harder of a process than I expected it to be. I’m pretty sure that part of the weeding out process is checking to see who can fill out the application correctly and gather all the necessary information in time to meet the deadline.

You’d think with me being a writer that drafting my personal statement wouldn’t be such a big deal … but it really was. This is not a type of writing I do very often, and I found it a challenge to try to figure out how best to represent myself on just one page. But, with feedback and editing help from some trusted friends, the personal statement was also prepared.

I submitted my part of all three applications last Tuesday. Yippee!!

So, now I just have to make sure that all the other parts of the applications that I’m not in charge of are also submitted in a timely fashion.

And then I get to play the waiting game . . .

It hasn’t been an easy experience deciding that I’m ready for grad school and doing the necessary work so I can hopefully get in. However, I’ve learned a lot already, and I’m hopeful for the future and for how this is all going to turn out.

Don’t give up on me posting here. I’m sure that I will write another post once I know where it is I’m going. Keep your fingers crossed, or better yet, say a little prayer for me that I’ll get into school and/or figure out where it is that I need to go.
