Moving Forward

We have our USCIS approval. It took just over 5 weeks. What an improvement. Last time it took 4 months. I am so excited to have that step done. Now there is nothing standing in our way except for the long list of people ahead of us.

I am not-patiently waiting to hear back about my application into the doctoral program. I know I won't hear until after the beginning of August if my application packet is complete by then--I am waiting for a recommendation from a professor who is travelling Europe. If my application is not complete by then, I will have to wait until September. Then once they decide they like me as a candidate, I have to go for an interview infront of an admissions panel to show them that I know something about what I plan to study. I assume they will ask me questions about research I have done and plan to do, about my teaching experience, etc. It is all very intimidating.

I hate waiting...

Congratulations on your 171! That's great.

And best of luck with your doctoral program. I'm very envious -- I could be in school for the rest of my life and be happy. It'll be a little while before I go back...but I can't wait!
