istock_000002807197xsmallNo, I’m not quoting some cheesy movie line, my mailed copy of my GRE scores arrived in the mail today. The final results:

Quantitative : 660 (62%)
Verbal: 590 (84%)
Total: 1250

Analytical Writing: 5.5

Yes, you read that right, 5.5 out of 6! I was so excited when I saw that number that I bombarded Buzz with repeated screams of 5.5! as he stood on the front porch smoking. Our neighbors most certainly think I am insane but at this very moment I couldn’t care less.

To top off good news with more good news I now have all three letters of recommendation lined up and not one of the three minded that I made my request via e-mail. I was particularly concerned about asking via e-mail since every single resource says not to do it; however, being that I no longer attend said university and I live a 30 minute drive away it seemed appropriate to preface my visit with a politely worded “would you please consider” e-mail. All three replied with a yes and I am ecstatic.

The problem for professor 2? I had missed a letter off his e-mail address and by the grace of God happened to notice it and resent the e-mail this Saturday. He responded on Sunday with an “I’d be happy to”.

With my letters of recommendation process begun, my GRE scores finally in and (with much help from others) my statement of purpose just being polished up I am most certainly on the way to completing applications. I feel like I can very almost breath again although I know that feeling will go away once I have submitted applications and am waiting on answers! One day at a time though, while looking forward in this process is a necessity it is also a necessity to breath once in a while and live today for today.
