First Acceptance!!!

annieca

5,046 views

I got my first acceptance in the mail today!

I was going through the mail today and there was a letter from Indiana University. It was an acceptance letter!

Words cannot express how happy I am that I got accepted. Not that I got accepted to Indiana, per se, but that I got accepted. Huzzah! I was so worried that nobody would accept me, especially after a fiasco with one of my recommenders.

For you non-History majors, I had the lovely experience of getting to read one of my letters that had gotten sent to all of my US applications. In the letter, the recommender said I was good at cleaning and not good at original historical research. It was definitely a blow to my confidence.

So to get a letter from Indiana saying "We want you." (Well, I have no idea how much they want me because financial aid is a separate process) made me feel more confident in what I am doing and that the one letter didn't damn me.

Also, I'm happy that I got my first acceptance over with. It makes me less anxious about the other schools knowing I have at least one school I can go to.

Definitely, definitely happy about this! For everyone still waiting, keep hope! And don't obsessively check your email. But make sure to check your snail mail!

Congrats! That's amazing. Is this considered an early acceptance?

Indiana has a policy of responding within a month of your application. (They say two weeks.) They've got a rolling admission policy which is nice! I've got to apply for financial aid separately.

Thanks everyone!

Congratulations!! It may seem really dumb but reading your post makes me feel more excited and yet also, really nervous! 

 

P.S. 

If the school ALREADY said they want you, you'll probably be getting financial aid :)

Okay, I have to ask.. when did you submit your application? I also applied to IU Bloomington,and while some of my letters might have come in significantly later, I submitted my application December 21.

 

Congratulations!

Have you been noticed before you received the letter by "snail-mail", by other method like email or tele?

Congratulations!  That's wonderful!  (I also applied for a dual-degree MLS/MA at IU - my super top choice.  Is the 2-4 week policy university-wide or just SLIS or the history dept?  This fascinates me.)

 

It must be such a relief to hear from a school!  Congrats again!  How awesome!

 

All best,

Karen
