Today I submitted UCSD.
Next there’s a big stack of statements to tackle:
- University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign (due 12/10)
- University of Pennsylvania (due 12/15)
- UW-Madison (due 12/15)
- Harvard (due 12/16)
After that, there’s a brief interlude before the last two applications are due:
- University of Rochester (due 1/1)
- University of Maryland (due 1/15)
At this point, my next step is to complete basic applications for each program (e.g., name, address, etc.). This will get the basics out of the way and make it easier for my letter writers to submit all at once, before Xmas.
I haven’t decided whether I’ll take the extra time for Rochester and Maryland, or whether I’ll try to finish those before we leave for Cleveland (~12/19). At this point, I think it’d be much nicer to have everything submitted before the holidays, but we’ll see how it goes!
