So I guess I’m going to Anderson.
As D-Day part two approached, I refused to make a big deal about this decision. I didn’t stay up at night thinking about it. I wasn’t checking my email every five minutes like I did last time. I didn’t create any “positive imagery” and in fact had a lot of “negative imagery” in my head, to potentially help blunt a negative outcome. And while the build-up to the decision was completely different this time around, my result was exactly the same.
The wording of the decision was slightly different: the letter said I’m a great, talented candidate… yada yada yada… and that the class of 2013 was already full. The school said they would distribute another “final” decision on or before July 18th (which basically means on July 18th). Problem is, I plan to give notice at work about a month before that.
