In my previous post yesterday, I talked about valuing certainty at a premium, once you get to the point in the business school application process where you have gotten into at least one school you want to attend. Well, I got my wish granted almost immediately, in the form of an email from Kellogg today kindly informing me that I don’t have to go home, but I can’t stay there.
It is a relatively painless outcome, partly because I was already inoculated as a result of coming to terms with the very recent Booth waitlist, and partly because I am ready to move onto the next phase of this process. It would be nice to get to choose among options, rather than having my choices constrained for me, but that’s not how it turned out. As my options are becoming much clearer, I’m back to the decision I have been thinking about since over two months ago – attend NYU Stern or don’t attend business school at all?
As I’ve said before, it will be a matter of making the best decision I can, given the circumstances and my goals. It’s increasingly looking like I’ll be in Greenwich Village this fall, but the next few weeks and months will bring further clarity. Either way, I know I’m going to be a-okay.
