Nobody doesn’t not get in

I wonder though, realistically, how many people get into their 1st choice for study abroad. It’s got to be way easier than normal college or grad school apps, right? I’m a little nervous, but the websites seem to indicate that for normal undergrad, non-abroadness, they will essentially take you automatically with an IB diploma, and I have one of those, so that makes me feel good. Unless I wasn’t reading it correctly, in which case, I have bigger problems…

In other news, I have secured 2 letter-of-recommendation writers! The junior class dean who I took a class with and my adviser, the director of the creative writing program. Yay!
