results are coming in.... for others....

Started to see admit results from other applicants. Some of these admits are to the schools that I applied to as well. Hence I'm getting more emotional about my application status. I don't know how to describe the cocktail of emotions that I'm going through, although I can strike out those that are not in this cocktail, such as Happy, Glad, and Delighted. Sad and Disappointed are also out.

I have not heard from the school that interviewed me 2 weeks ago. Looking back, although I think I did ok for the interview, one area that I could have done better is to show more passion, committment and interest to the particular school. However, it was post-interview that I realized that the school is a better fit than I thought it was. Anyway, just have to wait for the final verdict to be announced.

My wife asked me how would I feel if I don't get admitted to any schools. At this point, I can say that it will not be the end of the world for me. I will be disappointed, but not discouraged. And I believe that whether to go or not is all part of God's plan and will for me (although right now, I still believe that graduate studies is in His plan and will for me). I will remember what the Apostle Paul wrote to the Philipians while he was in chains:

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! (Phil 4:4)

I will rejoice whatever it may be.

Hey dj, other people's admit results you mention about - are there any that are from the same or similar programs (not just schools) you have applied to? I believe I am on the same track as you (aiming for IS concentration at a business school, right?) and I have yet to hear anything nor see any IS, MIS or DS result on admission status posting sites, which is kind of interesting...

Hi nilk,

I have not seen any admits to IS programs yet.

Email me at virtual[dot]identity[at]gmail[dot]com if you wish to communicate separately.

Cheers,

I think you stand a very great chance to get admitted to those schools conducting interviews with you weeks ago. Some schools will not make their decisions until March. The admissions should be coming to you in weeks.

Weeks feel like months... ;p I guess things would move faster come March.
