So now that last post about my visit to IU looks foolish. Everything I said was true, I really was looking forward to starting at IU in the fall, the program really is great, I still love those students I met, and Bloomington is pretty cool too...then Rita D.ove called and informed me I was accepted to UVA for poetry. At some point during this call I must have stopped breathing because she felt it necessary to instruct me to breathe. I was not expecting this call. After getting rejected by all the other majors (Michigan, Iowa, Cornell etc.) I just figured UVA wasn't an option for me so I thought I was basically done with notifications. I actually said, "OH NO!" to Rita D.ove because I really was content/ecstatic with my IU decision.
So now, I'm actually headed to UVA in the fall. I just keep telling myself about that poet on Indiana's waitlist who is going to be as happy as I was to get that call.
