      I liked, "Never received my owl. Maybe it's because I'm a Muggle?" I laughed and laughed. What a great allegory for this process.

      Ask when you visit. For now, assume 49% and just do your best. Basketball teams down 1 at halftime end up winning more than 50% of the time, presumably because perceiving a slight but surmountable disadvantage improves performance.

      Thank u quantlizlemon, i mean they paid for a room and evrything an also a POI mentioned that this was less of an interview and more of a meet and greet so i think sounds pretty good, its my number choice so I'm excited but at the same time a nervous wreck haha

      Thank you gingerbreadlatte, yeah I'm approaching the situation carefully, doing the best I can to keep my mind interview sharp

  7. Ahhh, application season...the time of the year where thousands of intellectuals submit applications into the unforgiving portal of the internet, only to wait for what feels like an eternity, often culminating in the desperate need for inebriation. yup, definitely been there, and only recently have I gotten a little relief. I'll drink a beer this beer in honor of our mutual frustrations, cheers friends
  8. January was such a pain in the butt, it just seemed to drag on and on...mean while I'm compulsively checking my email like a crazy person and continuously logging on here to see where everyone else is at. But I finally got my call too, and if feels amazing. Totally feel you on your superstitions! I thought I was just crazy haha, I think the "accepted" finish line is just around the corner for you

      I think, for me, "concerned" is a more accurate term.. but, yeah.

      jmbrown88
