Hopeful no longer
As the title states, I no longer hope to enter SMU. As of this past Saturday, am I officially admitted to the class of 2007. Now I just have to reserve my seat and start preparing! Being one of the first applicants in the first round for the January term probably helped, but I remain pleased with myself.
I feel like I've rolled a boulder up a steep hill, only to find a mountain waiting in the path. But I enjoy challenges and think I'll do well. Everyone I've talked to has been gung-ho about SMU, especially the alumni. It's very interesting when MBA alumns from other universities recommend SMU over their alma maters.
I suppose I'll update this blog again in a few months when I start school. December 10th is orientation, so that weekend will probably be a good time to post some thoughts.
