Cat's outta the bag

I am thinking about going back to school for my master's degree. I've already missed the application deadline but I've made a good impression with someone influential in the program and I'm being encouraged to apply despite the deadline of March 1.

Because I'm already late I've been scrambling for letters of recommendation, requesting transcripts, and getting information regarding program prerequisites and trying to figure out how I can fulfill them as quickly as possible.

I don't want to give too much away at this time--but this would be something entirely new for me. I currently work as a publicist and though I don't hate the work, I feel like I'm supposed to be doing something else with my short time here on Earth. Life is too short to spend it doing something that leaves me unfulfilled. Applying to this master's program is my first step in rectifying that.

So wish me luck and please pardon my void here on the interwebz.

XOXO

Good luck! Hopefully you'll have a better experience than I did. I got into the program and was like, what am I doing here? I can't write anymore academic papers on Socrates.

wishing you total amounts of luck- you don't need it though. take me up on my offer to help! i don't mind. i absolutely think you should ask a few people to proof your essays, etc. my opinion is this: worry most about what is needed from YOU from the school (essays, etc.) and less about the recommendations, etc. most schools will accept you conditionally (and you'll get the unconditional acceptance when all the stuff is in)
so ask for all the references, and request the transcripts, then don't worry about the rest until your part is done.
YAYAYAYAY!!!!!! so proud of you!

Do it. I loved going back to school for my masters. (And if I could find someone to fund my doctorate program, I'd do that too). Lots of luck, and I hope school helps you find what you're looking for!
