After many months of studying for the GMAT & GRE, countless hours writing graduate school application essays, and obtaining the necessary documents for the application process, I finally did it. Submission of my MBA applications. Every application was submitted in its entirety by May 12, 2012. I didn’t think I’d start hearing back for awhile, but boy was I wrong.
Two days ago, I received an email from Rice University’s Admissions Board. They requested a formal campus interview with me starting as early as next week. Of course I agreed to this request, but the excitement didn’t fully register until five minutes after I’d sent my response. I became even more excited as I searched their website and stumbled across the snippet below. Interviews are mandatory, but not all applicants will receive an invitation to interview.
My father always says that getting the interview is the hardest part. It feels incredible to say that I officially have one foot through the door.
For the rest of that day, I felt as though I were walking on clouds. I never thought that Rice University would be an available opportunity for me, but this just goes to show that anything truly is possible. Today and tomorrow will be solely dedicated to researching potential interview questions for graduate school. It’s funny to think that this blog was born through my endless research of preparing for job interviews and accelerating careers; now I’m researching for school. Even more proof that everything really does come full circle.
