Short list v.3 – getting there
Probably every applicant goes through this cycle. Of trying to see where one fits best. My previous post was a result of a mix of emotions at not being able to decide conclusively, and 2 days later I suddenly got the answer. Its the resident voice that made the choice for me.(At the cost of sounding cliche` 🙂 )
I do not have specific reasons for this list. Lets just say that these choices resonate with me more than the others. I did have the realization though that I should not, and will not, apply to any ‘SAFE’ school. The whole process is about choosing the direction of your life, and there’s no point in becoming defensive. If there’s the belief in me which lets me select a ‘stretch’ school, why should I go ahead and ditch this belief by saying I wanna play safe as well?
My short list, and hopefully final –
Thanks to everyone who chose to comment on my last post. I end the month of June with the decision to not spend any further energy in school selection and instead focus on the essays and application. Its going to be a long and interesting journey ahead. All the best to my fellow applicants !
