March and more waiting ...
But right now I am really wanting to have my hope. My birthday is in less then a week, and part of me is hoping for something by then. Just because it would help passing another year. But I know that at least with one of the schools, they expect the group of first offers to get back to them by the 15th of this month. I get this feeling that if they offer me anything it will be after this date. It's probably something with the rest of the schools.
At this point, it looks like I am also getting my first paper published soon. But I don't think i will be soon enough to send it as an attachment to my application for this cycle. Oh well.
All this waiting is upsetting. Especially since one of my letter writers is one of my profs for a grad class that I am taking this semester. He is also hoping to hear news from me soon.
