It's been a pretty quiet week for me. I've been off from work since Tuesday, and with no interviews or applications to work on for the moment, my life has almost returned to pre-GMAT normalcy (with the added bonus of counting down the days until January 3). I have to admit that I'm coming off the high I had after my interviews last week, and a little bit of doubt is starting to creep in about whether I'll get an invite to HBS or Stanford. While I know that both programs say that they keep sending invites through January, I just can't help thinking that there's a good chance I won't be getting one. I know it's crazy to think that way at this point in the game, but there it is nonetheless. What's strange is as I think about what I would have done differently with the applications to those schools, the answer I've come up with is: nothing. Well, other than to correct those two typos in the HBS application. Looking back over those two applications, I think they do a good job showing who I am and what I've accomplished. It is a bit comforting to know that if I do end up getting dinged by those schools, it's not because of something I did or didn't do on my applications, but rather that those schools decided that I didn't fit in with what they were looking for in a student. Actually now that I've typed that I'm not sure if that's better or not. I know this is a bit of rambling, but hopefully this feeling of doubt will pass soon.
What is truly comforting though is that if I am turned away by Harvard, I'll be in good company.
