Application Blunder

Post Wed Jan 11, 2012 4:23 am
Hi Jon,

I was wait-listed by Goizueta, and I requested to them for some feedback.

I got a response from them informing me that my application was solid; it's just that the year is very competitive and now I should only wait.

I thought of forwarding that to a friend, but instead I sent it back to the lady from the admission's office. I had written "This is what I recieved from Goizueta. I guess there is not much that I can do."

She replied to me: "I think you meant this for someone else. Don't give up hope you just need to be patient and see what happens."

I am really worried that I have hampered my chances of admission to the program by this. I did write to her apologizing for the error, and reaffirmed my interest in the program.

What do you think about it?

Best,
Shaaji
