The long wait begins
I didn't do the second writing sample thing, because frankly, I just wanted to submit the applications and get on with my life.
Now that I've submitted, though, I feel certain I won't get in anywhere. I suppose it's normal. But I still feel accomplished! I think my proudest moment was when I finally finished my 16-page paper in English, analyzing an Arabic text. I'm a French lit major, so I was totally out of my comfort zone.
