I don't have time to worry about the future. If I get accepted, or if I don't, I still have far too much to do to worry about it. No use souring these next few days/weeks/months with worries--- they wont make the news come any faster.

I've got a life to live!

So screw you, Universities and your pointless waiting games. Screw you in the bum.

I know you didn't apply to my school, but maybe this'll give you an idea of timelines? Our grad director said today that they met last Friday to discuss grad applications.

Essentially, that means:

Jan 15 - deadline for applications
Jan 26 - professors sat to discuss applications
This week and into early next week, I believe, the applications for the folks they want to admit go to the dean for final approval.

...and acceptance calls should be made starting just over a week from now, I believe.

I have to say, having you around has made this process much easier. Thank you!

BTW, I added you to my friends' list - hope you don't mind.

I want to second the person who said having you around was nice.
You were a great help on my CV and in generally demystifying the whole process.

Sorry, but the first thought when I read the title of your post was "But why is the rum gone?"

...Well, how else do you think I could get to the stage of not caring, hmm????

Does this mean that you won't be posting to [livejournal.com profile] applyingtograd for a little while? That would be sad, given the recent onslaught of people who obsess over irrelevant things like whether or not a school has ever contacted an applicant after 5:47 P.M. EST on a Tuesday via carrier pigeon.

As for me, I still worry about my applications; however, I'm trying to distract myself with other things, like learning how to cook. (Currently, I'm at the "assembling and heating various prepackaged goods to form something meal-like" level.)

Oh no, I'm totally pathetic and continue to check LJ often... I still do want to get in as badly as ever, but I'm more enthusiastic about life in general. The other day, I realised that I'm living everyone else's dreams, and have been complaining about it, and that needs to stop. I'm happy with my life and if I don't get it right away, that means another year of amazing living.

I mean, I'm living in Scotland, washing when I feel like it (and not when I don't), don't pay for rent, eat free food, write all kinds of fun things, wander the empty streets late at night... My clothes don't match, my hair hasn't been washed in ages, I spend a ton of time at the playground with my friends (yes, I'm 23, still), I watch Stargate at 3 in the morning... and am generally just doing whatever the heck I want. My life rocks, and I want to smack myself for not realising it sooner.
