The day my visa was approved
is also the day Kellogg updated my status and dropped me from the wait list. Surprisingly, I wasn’t heartbroken. Probably because I have got closer to Emory in the last 4 months since my acceptance and am extremely happy to be going there, and grateful for the affordability. Kellogg has, however, been the jewel of my application process. I feel enriched from the experience and from the brief yet wonderful association with a school I would have loved to be a part of. Thank you. The closure was necessary.
Its Emory all the way from here.
So I was telling you about my visa interview experience. My kid, usually quiet when among people, began to wail upon noticing that the visa hall was unnervingly silent. We had to take him out and wheedle him for quite some time before he permitted us to enter the hall again. Without a long wait and after begging our kid not to shriek during the interview, it was our turn to face the Visa Officer. He seemed to be pretty happy about something, not sure what. The last time I had faced a US visa interview, it had lasted barely 10 seconds, but this time around the VO was taking his time to type a lot of information, and his first question to us came after about a minute or so. During all his questions, he looked us straight in the eyes and I think never blinked. After a few expected questions and my kid growing restless again, he felt satisfied with the interview and announced that our visas had been approved.
So that marks the final lap of my MBA applications, and its about 8 weeks before I become a student again. There are a number of things on my list vying for my attention, and I better comply. There’s also this feeling that the time for an MBA is going to arrive, finally. So much for getting upto here; so much, to look forward to.
