오랫 많아! (Long time, no see)
Yes, it has been ages since I’ve posted. It’s not that I’ve forgotten about you…I actually did think about writing a couple posts, but then I decided that I didn’t really have anything interesting to say. But, I guess I do have a few interesting things to tell you about……
But you won’t hear about all of them in this post!
If you recall, I’ve talked about applying to graduate school before. Last summer, I visited the campus and sat in on some classes. It was great. Portland seems like a wonderful city, and the degree (Master in International Management) is right where I want to be. The small glimpse I got really felt great, and I got very excited about the possibility of studying there. But I tend to get really excited about things like that and over invest myself thinking about it before it becomes a reality. In college, I spent 6 months thinking I was going to join the Navy, before I finally resigned myself to the fact those doors weren’t opening.
Anyway, I got back to Seoul and took the GMAT in October. I was reasonably pleased with the result… I did really well on the verbal sections, and horrible on the math part! But it averaged out to a slightly above average 560. I decided to stick with it, since those tests are pretty reliable and the chances of increasing my math score are probably slim!
So, shortly after the new year, I sent off my application, expecting to hear in early February. Well, as it turns out, schools are e-mailing applicants these days. This morning I woke up to an e-mail offering me a place in the upcoming class!!
Actually, I am likely going to defer the application for 1 year. Accepting a space in this fall’s cohort means I’d have to leave Korea ahead of schedule. It would also mean that I couldn’t make good on my plan to go study Spanish this fall and winter! On that note, I’ve bought a ticket to Honduras in mid-September. My goal is to spend about 4-5 months traveling through and studying in Central America.
