Late last week, I received a rejection letter to one of my top three choices for graduate school. I was disappointed, but it was still early. I had not heard back from very many schools yet. But today, I received emails from two universities accepting me to their graduate programs, one of which is from one of my top three choices!
The top choice that accepted me is the same school from which I had previously earned my master’s degree in math (it’s in Canada). The other school that accepted me is in southern California, and it’s neither a backup nor one of the top three choices.
When one door closes, two more open. I still have to wait for more acceptances and/or rejections before I can make my final decision. The more doors that open, the more difficult to choose which door to take. But two acceptance emails sure makes for an exciting day!
Time to celebrate with some Lost and Merlin!
