Grad School Application
My grad school application is due in 10 days. I’m very nearly done with it.
I’ve filled out and saved all of my information to the online application.
I’ve requested official transcripts from my two colleges (Kalamazoo and Waseda).
I’ve found two people to write me recommendations (which was a lot harder than I thought, since I haven’t been in school for six years — Who do you get to do recommendations when you don’t have teachers to fall back on?).
I’ve re-done my resume to reflect my current position and uploaded it to the application website.
The only remaining piece is the “essays.” I say essays because they’re really just four prompts for which I have to write around 200 words each. They’re certainly not what most people would think of when they think of an “application essay.” None-the-less, they’re giving me headaches because writing about myself is hard. I suppose that’s the point.
But, I have ten days to submit my application and have started on the “essays,” so I think I’m in pretty good shape.
Fundamentals of Accounting Homework
It’s possible that I have not been doing my Fundamentals homework. *chagrined*
Ever since I stopped doing it regularly to study like a mad, studying fool for the GMAT, I’ve had a hard time getting back into doing my Fundamentals homework.
In my defense, between my grandma’s fall (if I didn’t write about that here before, she’s fine, recovering well), my dad coming into town to take care of my grandma after her fall and staying with us because she wasn’t released as soon as they thought, and my good friend coming into town to visit just a week after my dad left… life’s just kind of been crazy.
I realize that “life being crazy” is not really a good reason not to be doing my coursework, especially since I can’t expect life to be any less crazy when I’m actually in school. But, the way I’ve been thinking about it is that I’ve got all summer to go through the last four chapters of the text book, and right now my top priority is getting my patio garden figured out.
