After a period of anticipation-induced insanity, my application got deferred today by my top pick school. How I feel? Cautiously optimistic. With the school’s dismal acceptance rate, I’m not disappointed by the deferral per se, just more disappointed that now I have to crank out more applications. Ugh, c’est la vie.
While I hope for the best come spring, this deferral only means I’ll be giving 110% from here on out. A big thanks to my friends and mentors for their support in the process.
And hey, a deferral isn’t a rejection.
