02:58 pm - Out of my hands
My application to CUNY is in; there's not really anything else I can do about it.

On the down side: Parts of it are getting to them late (although within their grace period), and I didn't give them a real "academic writing" sample because I can't find any papers from 12-15 years ago.

On the bright side: I realized today that my competition is mostly kids just out of school. And I blew away the GRE. And I won a prestigious fellowship the last time I went to grad school. And although I dropped out, I did my previous grad work at Yale. And my essay was pretty good. And the writing samples I gave them are good.

On the whole, I think it's likely that I'll get in. But as I said above, there's nothing more I can do about it! So I will just have to wait a couple months and see what I find out.

It's a relief to have the application finished, I can tell you that!

[ETA: In case anyone doesn't know, I'm applying to the PhD program in sociology, at the Graduate Center at CUNY.]
