I am to defend my thesis in approximately 36 hours. More like 35 now.
I am a bit nervous and anxious. But most of all, I want to just get it over with.
On a more lighter note, I have been accepted to SMU-Dedman School of Law in Dallas, TX, which is now at the top of the list. I am still waiting to hear back from Univ. of Wisconsin and Univ. of Arizona, but should both of them say ‘no,’ I’m packing my bags for Dallas. I have been admitted to the evening part-time program (which takes four years) with some offer of money, and I must confess I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t admitted to the day full-time program. Not that their part-time program is anything to scoff at, but I was really planning on finishing in three years.
Perhaps this is a sign from God. Take things slow. What’s another year? Maybe I’ll have more time and energy to devote to lower course load each semester. Perhaps I can work on another degree full-time (e.g. M.Th. or M.A. at one of the Dallas-Ft .Worth area seminaries; M.P.H.; or M.A. in International Affairs). Or I could work during school to lower my debt. I don’t know. It’s too early to tell.
