Sign On The Line

Yesterday I submitted my notice of acceptance to Wake Forest, as well as making arrangements for my deposit to make it there. It's about as official as it's going to get! I've managed to keep in touch with some of the guys I met during Scholar's Weekend and they seemed happy about me coming. The next two years are going to be fun!

Now comes the part where I let Georgetown and UNC know that I do not wish to remain on the waitlist. It feels a bit odd, really; we wait for so long to be told yes and live in fear of hearing the word no. Now, I get to say no. Pretty drastic change. I'll send a polite email to both schools, thanking them for everything so far and wishing them well. No sense in getting an attitude about it!

The other school stuff now gets moved to the front of the burner. Housing, FAFSA, moving plans are the order of the weeks and months ahead. First task is definitely the FAFSA, though. I'll be meeting with financial aid to go over my scholarship, but I want to make sure the form is submitted ahead of time. Housing should be taken care of during RCW so I won't have to worry about that for too long. Once you've got a place, and know how you're paying for it, the rest is gravy!

Congratulations on Babcock! I've been following your blog over the last few months as we are in very similar situations (I also applied to Georgetown and UNC). I'm glad to hear things worked out for you and wanted to say thanks for sharing your journey. It's been helpful to compare/contrast someone else's B-school journey with that of my own. Please feel free to email me if you'd like to share experiences going forward.

Thanks AJ. I plan on keeping the blog going throughout school as I find it pretty cathartic to get my words out. I'll definitely keep in touch
