I come bearing exciting news! I’m going back to school!
I know I’ve talked about it here and there, but through some unexpected circumstances, I’m actually going back next semester!
My long-term goal is to eventually go to school for Midwifery, but because the acceptance rate is so low I knew that I’d need to improve my academic resume if I wanted to get accepted. Through some research I slowly figured out that most people getting accepted held bachelor’s degrees before being accepted into the program. With a year already under my belt at Carleton, I started looking into going back. I e-mailed the Carleton admissions office and found out that because four years hadn’t passed yet since my first year at Carleton, that I’m technically still a student. Unfortunately, my place at Carleton would expire if I didn’t go back during the winter semester and I’d be forced to reapply through the OUAC system, which also meant repaying all the fees. After talking to friends, family and my boyfriend I decided it would be smarter to go back now and save myself all the trouble of paperwork, fees, etc. later.
I’m still ironing out all the details, but I’ve registered for my courses so come January 2017 I’ll be back at Carleton! I know everything will work itself out but as of right now I’m a little stressed out figuring out all the logistics. Wish me luck!
That’s all I really have to report on for now – so any old Carleton friends of mine, see you around campus soon!
