Perspective

Right now, I bet March seems like a pretty long month in light of what's going to happen on notification day (officially April 1st, I'll tell you ASAP if we'll be early).  I thought I'd provide a little perspective about how far you've come.

On August 1st, the Common Application went live.  Most of you probably weren't aware.


At some point, you realized it was time to work on your applications and you sprung into action.


You plugged away here and there, trying to meet deadlines.


Goodness gracious, were there deadlines! Would you ever be done with this?


After you hit "submit" on that last application, you still had to keep an eye on your status.


Now you're in the home stretch. Your applications are complete and it's time to wait for decisions to arrive.
 


You've come a long way. Good job!

Do you recognize the beach where these photos were taken? Name it and I will give you a secret prize!
