We got home in the early hours of Monday morning so I didn’t even look at my huge pile of mail until yesterday evening when I got home from work. I happened to be catching up via cell phone with my dear friend Sara when I saw two small envelopes and one big one from Marquette in the mix. I interrupted our conversation while I opened the big one to find this inside:
I also received an acceptance letter from the Law School and a note from the Assistant Dean of Admissions commenting on my writing skills/experience.
I’m not exactly surprised but frankly I hadn’t thought much about law school in the past month, between planning and then being on vacation. Besides that I had no idea when I would hear from Marquette, whose deadline for part-time students isn’t until June.
Needless to say I am relieved and happy, and newly motivated to complete my FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid – that’s such a blast from the past!) after I pick up my tax return tonight. But first I have to go vote in the exciting (for once) Wisconsin primary!
More on Mexico later!
