Dee's Life Update: The Time I Got The Letter…

This year I've been posting sporadically about my personal life and endeavors. I really love all the support I've gotten :L

If you've been following the blog you already know that I've been working 3 jobs temporarily to reach my goals and attend graduate school in the Fall. Last year I took the GRE and applied to a few different Graduate Schools— my number one choice was sent in December. Ever since I've been dying to discover where I will get in! I applied to the MLIS program (Master's of Library and  Information Science) and my biggest hope was that I could get in and enroll for fall of this year and at least one program that I applied to (which was only a total of 2, tbh).

SO I recently got a letter…the BEST LETTER..

I recently heard back from my #1 school..

I got in to UCLA Graduate School :rainbow 

I'll be attending the school of Library and Information Science starting in the end of September! :e UCLA has the #1 program in the state and top in the country. I am SO excited (and also very nervous)  because there's a lot I need to accomplish in these next 7 months. I need to keep working and saving like mad to move, and I need to enroll in a Statistics class as a prerequisite. My grade in the class will be my first grade on my Graduate transcripts.. no pressure though! ;)

I just wanted to share the good news with you all. I know a lot of you were curious and asked me to keep sharing about my journey!

I also know a lot of you are librarians / have gotten your master's degree already (or higher) and I want to ask you to share in the comments anything you want to about your experience :O In general I am curious about grad school and different people's experiences.
