I normally don't like posting personal stuff on here but I think this is a special exception.
For the last 3 months I've been spending a lot of time getting my application ready for business school and I'm proud to say that I have been accepted into the MBA program at Ohio State!
Prospective students are able to check the application site to see when there is a change in their application status. Last night I saw there was finally a change in my status and oh man was I nervous to click on the link to find out. I read the first word (Congratulations!) and needed a few minutes to collect myself before I could keep reading. I really could feel a weight being lifted off my back.
Getting the application together (studying for & taking the GMAT, getting letters of recommendation, writing personal statements etc) is difficult in itself but I think the month I had to spend just waiting for a decision was even worse. I'm pretty sure I checked the site four to five times a day looking for an answer. Tom Petty is right, the waiting is the hardest part.
This is where 11W comes in. I've been a regular visitor here for a while now and the articles, jokes, previews, and gifs have helped to pass the time tremendously. I just wanted to take a minute and say thanks for making waiting a little more enjoyable. You guys have definitely helped make the waiting more bearable.
FYI my situational bourbon while waiting was Eagle Rare (neat) or Buffalo Trace (rocks).
