AH!!

I applied for international relations/public policy graduate schools for the fall and just received my first notification: acceptance to Georgetown University!

Is anyone else applying to or waiting to hear from graduate schools??

Thanks for indulging me in my excitement... I love how supportive 3FC was and was so excited to share this news

Congrats! I remember my first acceptance - it's nice to know you're going SOMEWHERE! And Georgetown at that!

You guys are so great! Thank you!

Brooklynn congratulations to you as well!!! Awesome you are moving onward and upward at the school of your choice to advance your career

ERHR Yes exactly! I will likely to go Gtown but will be interested to see what other options are available. Bottom line is I got in somewhere and will definitely be going to school, what a relief
