The lull before the storm

So things have been quite dull ever since I submitted my applications. I wrote the TOEFL yesterday and it was such a breeze – I actually enjoyed the exam! It’s scheduled to be about 4h 30m long but I finished it in about 3h 15m, following which I got the stink-eye from the remaining test takers. All in all, I think I’m going to manage a respectable score and I’m glad it’s out of the way. I hope the scores are sent to UCLA asap because my application is going to be put “on hold” until they receive my TOEFL score.

I’ve also been featured in this US News article which is pretty cool! When I get into a school of choice (power of positive thinking), I’m definitely going to talk about how I focused on bringing out my strengths as a female candidate. This was actually the main fodder for my essays, particularly Kellogg and UCLA.

The waiting game is still on… I haven’t heard back from any school yet but I’m trying not to read too much into it. The end of this month/the beginning of the next is going to be nuts but I’m excited! Here’s to good things coming all the Round 2’ers way!

  1. Hey there! I know this feeling all too well! Not much you can do for now, so try to relax and get yourself in the zone for interviews when those invites start rolling in! Great to be mentioned in the US News article too – I’m starting to feel all left out! 🙂

    1. Yes I’m definitely trying to relax! I plan to start prepping for interviews starting next week. Last round, I didn’t want to get ahead of myself and start preparing even before invites were released but I think that was pretty dumb of me (and pessimistic to boot). This time I have four schools and potentially four invites, so I’m not going to have too much time to prepare! Haha, aw I’m sure someone out there is going to notice your brilliance soon enough! 🙂
