Most importantly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful sister Jen! xoxo
Yesterday I went to Golden Gate Law for the Dean’s Reception. I had an AWESOME experience!
I got into the city early and met up with Joseph for a quick dinner before he headed back home and I headed over to GGU. I arrived before anyone else, including the staff and faculty. I was surprised as I was only 20 minutes early. About a minute after I put my nametag on the associate admissions director came in and we started chatting before the Dean came in. They were both so wonderful and very easy to talk too! It was so cool to have them to myself for a few minutes. Soon enough people began piling in and among other admitted students were current students, alumni, professors, a financial aid counselor and administrative staff.
We began with a speech by one of the deans before Dean Van Cleave engaged us in a mock lecture. It was short and sweet but very interesting! Then each person who wasn’t a newly admitted student got a chance to speak about their roles at GGU so we knew who to talk to afterward. Immediately following we split into tour groups and ended up at the reception. There were refreshments and we had a chance to pick everyone’s brains and to introduce ourselves to them. There were probably 20 new students and only 4-5 of us were evening students. I met a few really cool people and I hope to meet up with them soon!
I took full advantage and asked a lot of questions and I REALLY loved the feeling I got from the people there. They seemed genuinely interested in each student and happy to talk to us. It made me think I may rather go there. Now I have a dilemma (sort of). If USF accepts me, I will be torn. Until last night I was certain I would choose USF without question should I have the choice. At least now I know I will be happy no matter what!!!
My concern is based on picking the place that will be best suited for me and there really is no way of knowing that. Can you say stressful? Can you say first world problems?
