And in other news, I am reading Lord of the Flies for the 100 All-Time. I forgot how boring literature can be. It's going to be a struggle. Oh, and I crossed off all the books I read and was totally shocked by the letter G. Ok, out of 100 I have read 12 total. Out of 6 books that start with the letter G, I've read 4 of them. The public school system must love the letter G....
So you all know I applied to DePaul for grad school. I believe I am in the midst of a career/quarter life crisis. So I decided to avoid the real world/working world and go back to school. So the computer grad school at DePaul is high tech. I can check my application status online. Apparently they made a decision today. You know what that means right? I'll get it in the mail on Wednesday when I'm in Disney World. Suck-ass timing, eh? So, can I glean anything from the website? You tell me...here's what it says and why I tend to think I got in:
"Your application materials were reviewed by an admission officer on 10/27/2005 . A decision has been made about your admission. You will receive the decision in the mail.
The first step in getting started in the graduate program is to make an appointment to assess your prerequisite phase. This Prerequisite Planning Appointment (PPA) can be made with your assigned advisor or any available faculty member. Click here to request an appointment online.
This status was current as of: 10/27/2005."
Now, my question is this: why say that I have to make a planning appointment if I didn't get in? Isn't that a slap in the face if I get a rejection letter? Should I prepare my face for the slap just in case?
