So back in September 22, 2009, I posted about my secret pipe dream. Which was to get into Harvard Law. Well, this morning, while I was laying in bed in a bra and underwear, surfing Facebook (total law student material, yo), I get a call with caller ID: Cambridge, MA. I almost dropped the phone, no lie.
And would you believe it? It was the dean of admissions at Harvard, telling me I had a spot off the waitlist.
I'm still in disbelief about this, but my status checker indeed indicates I am admitted. So in four weeks, I will be moving out to Cambridge to attend the school I never believed I would get into (because let's just say, my numbers would not suggest I am a competitive candidate for Harvard). To the east coast! I've never lived outside of the Midwest. This is going to be ... an experience, to say the least.
I'm freaking out. I am absolutely delirious. I feel like I've just been walking around in a daze all day. And I keep being reminded it happened, and it makes me so excited every time.
I don't even know what to say, other than that I'm really, really, really happy. And I really hope I'm not dreaming. And that this is the best birthday present of all time. And I can't wait to start this new adventure.
Holy crap, guys. I'm going to Harvard.
