OK, I am going nuts right now. Graduate school application due dates for the schools that I applied to ranged from December 1st to January 7th. Since then, I have been waiting…for anything. I applied to 11 programs. To date, I have been invited to visit 1 school and have been denied to 2 programs. The other 8, nothing. I wish I knew what was going on. Should I be expecting more invitations to schools? Have interviews/invitations to visit passed? Should I assume that because I have not been interviewed at other places, that they will deny me?
My assumption at the moment is that the only chance I have to going to graduate school is through the only school that has invited me thus far. This was my top school going into applications, so I would be happy if I got accepted. However, just because they invited me does not mean that I will get in. I just wish that I knew the timeline everyone else is following so I could plan my life accordingly.
In the mean time, I guess I’ll just apply to more jobs.
