This year I applied to a total of 10 schools. Of those 10 schools, there was really only one school I wanted to attend. If I had my way, I would have only had applied to that one school, but I felt that I needed to apply to more schools. This particular school had a very unique program different from all the rest. It was an interdisciplinary program fusing art and computer science. Employers within my industry love this program and all the students pretty much had a job waiting for them right after graduation. They also placed a heavy emphasis on research. It was my dream program...synthesis of art and computer science, excellent employment rate thanks to the classes, and great research.
I've recently learned of 6 people who were accepted into this program. Decisions were finalized a while ago and I've pretty much heard nothing from anyone. No one has responded to my emails and I guess that pretty much tells me that I have not been selected among the chosen few to attend this program. There really shouldn't be a reason why I haven't been notified if I wasn't accepted. So the dream has been shattered...I guess I'll just go to one of the other schools that accepted me. I'll probably be miserable attending, but what other choice do I have?
