The waiting game

Day 114 of my time in application purgatory. There is still no response from any school to which I applied. Every day is the same; I check my application portals and get disappointed by “Application Pending” messages. Sometimes I sleep, most of the time I don’t. Morale is at an all-time low. Family and friends seem to have given up on me because they hear about freshmen acceptances and don’t realize that transfer students are supposed to hear later. Maybe they are right to be giving up.

Update: got accepted to a couple of UC schools so far. The struggle is over, all is light, and the future looks bright!
