Graduate School and life....

I'm back!

Quick update, in a mere two weeks all three of the B-schools I applied for replied back. Drumroll please....

#1 - VCU - I'm in! Yay!!

#2 - University of Toronto - I'm wait-listed, not bad, not bad at all.

#3 - London Business School - rejected. But I'm not totally bummed out, the price tag for going to the school and living in London - $75,000. Really even if accepted, I would not have been able to go, much too expensive, can't incur that debt.

I'm pleased with my results, after seeing the GMAT score, I was afraid I wouldn't get into any of the schools. Two out three is not bad (according to University of Toronto, wait-listed is a positive thing and I'm taking it that way!).

Trip out to Phoenix was fun, without internet and all my household chores, it was like a mini-vacation. I truly was able to relax as soon as the quitting bell rang instead of constantly thinking, "what do I have to do." Already I've been back in the DC area two days and my nerves are back to were they were, I'm stressed out. Plus I think going out, meeting the people taking over my duties has helped me bring some closer to this job. I'm ready to move on. It's a good thing.

So you've got one in the bag, no matter what. You're set! And it's close to home!

I love Canada, and there's a lot to be said for going away, too.

Good Luck!

Pax - thank you : ) I'm so happy to have been accepted, I was quite nervous with my GMAT scores being so low.

Merci - yup, close to home and one in the bag, works for me, considering I only applied to three schools, I'm feeling pretty good.

Tony - oh thanks, I missed reading all of you guys. I will try to get to my tag this week, promise!

Joe - leaning towards VCU cause it is more feasible, much more feasible! But we will see, University of Toronto is a very good B-school, but out of my price range.
