“Thank You For Submitting Your Application”
Really vague email title. And then it was over. After 4 months of application preparation and then 3 months of waiting, strangling my anxiety pillow, this is a very climactic finish, all in a single email.
My phone had been vibrating all morning to email notifications from the Archinect thread. Surely, everyone was posting decision results. I shot up at 7 am, way ahead of my alarm clock, to check my email. “Thank You For Submitting Your Application” from Columbia University. How mysterious. And it took a few more seconds to have to log in to their system. “A decision has been made regarding your application.” “Click Here.”
It felt like somebody lit me on fire.
